Something's Gotta Give on DVD

In a new favorite romantic comedy, Something's Gotta Give, divorced and successful playwright Erica Barry (Diane Keaton) has given up on love.  When her daughter Marin (Amanda Peet) visits the gorgeous family home in the Hamptons with her 63 year old boyfriend sparks fly and not just the typical "what's an old man like you doing with my daughter?" but that is the beginning.

Harry is a renowned bachelor with a preference for young women and Erica is a  divorcee accustomed to life on her own with a successful career.  When Harry has a heart attack and Erica takes on the role as caregiver, things change for both of them.
Filmed in the Hamptons in a most gorgeous house, Something's Gotta Give offers comedy and a beautiful story of life and love after 50.  Sure to be a favorite to be enjoyed time and again, I recommend adding this one to your collection.
