Things get a little awkward when Harry suffers a heart attack at the home of Marin's mother Erica. Left in the care of Erica and his doctor, a love triangle starts to take shape. Written by Keanuette. The glimpse though turned out to be some of the best parts of a very excellent movie. Nicholson is a brash and sometimes quietly obnoxious success from New York who has made a life out of chasing and something year-old girls. He and his newest girlfriend Amanda Peet get along really well. They decide to go out to Peet's mother's Keaton beach-house outside of the city to consummate their relationship.
Who's talking here? Jack Nicholson , or the character he plays in "Something's Gotta Give"? Maybe it doesn't make any difference. After playing an older man entirely unlike himself in " About Schmidt ," Nicholson here quite frankly and cheerfully plays a version of the public Jack, the guy who always seems to be grinning like he got away with something. This has inspired scoldings from the filmcrit police "This is Jack playing 'Jack'," says Variety , but who would you rather have playing him? Nicholson's quasi-autobiographical role is one of the pleasures of the film. Nicholson's character, named Harry Sanborn, is a rich music executive who is currently dating the nubile young Marin Barry Amanda Peet. She takes him for a weekend to her mother's home in the Hamptons -- where, horrors, he is found raiding the refrigerator in the middle of the night by her mother Erica Diane Keaton and Aunt Zoe Frances McDormand. Erica is a famous playwright, too worldly to object to her grown daughter's taste in men, and the four spend the weekend together.
