Genre(s): Romantic Comedy, Drama
Jack Nicholson stars in the romantic comedy "Something's Gotta Give" as perpetual womanizer Harry Sanborn. Always going after younger women, he is surprised to find himself falling for the mother of one of his conquests. That woman is playwright Erica Barry, who's been through her share of heartaches and is very wary of his advances, though she can't deny an attraction. This film caters more to older audiences who can relate to the issues Harry and Erica face. There's an added layer of humor because Erica is a playwright, so many of the events return later in stylized form when the ordeal leaves her with her strongest writing inspiration in years. While Harry is a scoundrel and Erica is icy, their dynamic is very entertaining.
