Something’s Gotta Give

We rent­ed Some­thing’s Got­ta Give a cou­ple of weeks back, with very low expec­ta­tions. For some rea­son, all through Oscar Sea­son, nei­ther Tiffany nor I could get up the inter­est to watch it. Anoth­er Jack show. Diane Keaton nev­er has rung my bell. Aman­da Peet real­ly does­n’t do any­thing for me.

Sure, lots of folks were telling us it was good. The crit­i­cal acclaim was strong. But it took us a long time ot come around. And now we have.

The movie is cuter than we thought, with pret­ti­er peo­ple (wow, that house was some­thing else!), bet­ter guest stars (Frances McDor­mand, Jon Favreau, and Starsky!), a more inter­est­ing plot (they have sex pret­ty ear­ly on as these for­mu­las go), and on-screen instant mes­sag­ing that could actu­al­ly be real!

It may have been a lit­tle long, and the Paris thing was a bit over­much, but still, wor­thy of your time and mon­ey.
