Something's Got To Give
December 15, 2003

What has got to give?  We all know from the previews that it is Jack Nicholson's heart.  His character has two heart attacks:  After a hectic way of life and after meeting Keaton's character.

Her character is described as someone who should grace the mantle above a fireplace and the director shows a painting of a woman in Keaton's home to emphasize this.  Also, when Nicholson is looking at Keaton's chest and says, "You are beautiful," the director intentionally focuses the camera on her heart.  By doing this, the director clearly shows her point of view.

Favorite scenes:  The glasses, the stage scene--including the Dancing Henry's, hospital scenes, the flight of stairs at the beach.

A nice cut of the camera to show time passing:  When Nicholson is in the elevator with no beard, and then comes out with a beard.  The disheveled look emphasizes Nicholson's character change--toward a meaningful relationship with Keaton's character, unlike his shallow relationships of the past.  

Also, I kept feeling sorry for Keanu Reeves' character.  At least in real life, (such as the case with Mary Tyler Moore's other half), the ending is good for the doctor.  Reeves acts out well the subtle recognition he observes regarding Keaton and Nicholson outside of the restaurant while they all wait for a taxi.  The camera likes Reeves' face and these kinds of shots should be used more in his  work.

Amanda Peete and Frances McDormand are true talents that add to the movie.

The actors chosen for this picture appeal to a wide range of audiences.
