Something's Gotta Give | 2003 | PG-13 | - 6.2.5

Jack Nicholson stars as a successful business man whose sexual relationships with younger women allow him to avoid becoming emotionally entangled. But when he's forced to spend several days with the middle aged mother of his latest young girlfriend, a playwright living in the Hamptons, he ends up falling in love with her. Competing for her affections is a younger man (Keanu Reeves). Also with Amanda Peet and Jon Favreau. Directed by Nancy Meyers. [2:13]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - We see a fully nude woman briefly (bare breasts and a very quick glimpse of the pubic region). A man and a woman kiss, they lie back in bed kissing, and the man cuts the woman's sweater off (we see her in her bra) while he asks about birth control; the woman moans and writhes as the man apparently performs oral sex on her, then they kiss and they are shown lying in bed together covered up to the shoulders by sheets. An older man and a younger woman kiss. An older woman and a younger man kiss several times, and he chases her through a house. A man and a woman kiss several times, in different scenes. A man kisses a woman's neck and cheek. A man and a woman look at each other with loving glances. A man tries to kiss a woman but misses her mouth. A young woman takes off her top (she wears an opaque camisole), she then removes her pants (we see her panties) while an older man watches. A younger man kisses an older woman on the cheek, and a woman kisses a man on the cheek. We see a man in his underwear and a shirt. Several men wear prosthetic buttocks in a play. A man licks an ice cream cone suggestively. Two women dance suggestively to "Let's Get It On" while a man and a younger woman in the next room make sexually suggestive noises. A women says she was "fooling around" with an older man, a woman says to another woman "He's hot for you," a man asks a woman "we haven't had sex yet?", a younger man says to an older woman "you are sexy," and a man looks at his crotch and says "Now look who's got something that works." A man refers to his genitals as "Mr. Midnight." We see a man's bare buttocks when his hospital gown opens in the back. A man is bare-chested in a hospital. Two men hug and one kisses the other on the cheek (does not appear sexual). Many women are shown wearing outfits (low-cut, clinging and otherwise revealing) that expose bare abdomens, cleavage, bare backs and shoulders, and bare thighs -- we see many walking and posing in such a way as to accentuate their figures.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
