Keanu reeves dating somethings gotta give men looking for dating
Diane Keaton gives the performance of her career in ' Something's Gotta Give,' writer/director Nancy Meyers' smart and savvy take on middle-age romance.
Keaton plays Erica Barry, a 50-something playwright living on her own in a swanky beach house in the Hamptons.
There were moments when I wondered what kind of a story SOMETHING' S GOTTA GIVE would have been had it decided on bringing Keanu Reeve's character into the front and having him being her choice, but this being a conventional script, it of course decides to have Nicholson win her back in the most traditional of ways with nary a conflict, but this doesn't detract much from the film as much as tell a good chick-flick with an emotional center.
Some nice supporting roles here: Reeves plays a character totally different from his MATRIX or CONSTANTINE roles, Rachel Ticotin holds her own as the doctor whom Nicholson keeps bumping into every time his heart goes bonkers, and Amanda Peet continues to prove herself as the rising star she is becoming.
He didn't pursue his interest in Keaton until Nicholson had told him she was in her early thirties.
Something's Gotta Give tells the story of playwright Erica Barry (Diane Keaton), who is surprised to find herself falling for her daughter's boyfriend - Harry Sanborn (Jack Nicholson), a playboy who has a reputation for never dating a woman over 30.
She's also surprised to find herself pursued by Harry's doctor (Keanu Reeves), who's young enough to be her son.
"I was just messing with his head," said Nicholson. I mean, the broad doesn't look bad for her age, but she magazine.
"Diane has really old tastes for a woman her age." After Reeves' relationship with Collins had run its course—"He was too old for me," said Collins—Reeves turned to Keaton for comfort.
"Gotta run," he said, "Ashton Kutcher's on the other line, something about a double date." In other news, the Pentagon has added Camp Casey in Crawford, Texas, to the list of military bases scheduled for closure.
