Something's Gotta Give
2003
Still sexy at 60, Harry Sanborn is having the time of his life, wining, dining and bedding women half his age. But when he agrees to go to the Hamptons with his girlfriend, their getaway goes awry after her playwright mother stops in unannounced.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

We know roughly how the plot will go; what surprises us is the warmth and eloquence employed in the process. That’s appropriate, since he’s a flatterer and she’s a playwright, but it reminds us how badly most romantic comedies slack off when it comes to what a man and woman falling in love should say to one another, as though desirous stares were enough. Keaton is luminous and honest, and it’s no mystery why all the men in the movie fall for her. It would have been better without rushing the ending so much, but it was still a joy.
