  1. The moments between the characters are absolutely full. It's a pleasure to watch such consummate professionals.
  2. Its script is sharp, its dialogue is acerbic, its stars could hardly be better and, in its more sparkling moments, it exudes some of the flavor and charm of the later Hepburn-Tracy comedies.
  3. Doesn't always sizzle, but its stars do.

    I love Nicholson here because he lets Keaton take the movie--and his relative reticence is very attractive.

    As cinema, it's polenta, but it's made palatable by the piquant sauce with which these two great stars season it.
  6. 63
    Despite the weak dialogue, there are still some laughs to be had. At the end of this long journey, we're rooting for Harry and Erica to be together. For the movie to get us to that point, regardless of its motives and methods, it can't be all bad.
  7. Something does have to give, and that's the nine-figure public patronage of this kind of anemic, wit-free entertainment. Meyers's shakin' moneymaker isn't the worst film of 2003 -- no cat suits, for one thing -- but something scarier: a standard-issue bog of glossy idiocy and audience disrespect.

    Fantastic, hilarious, and moving, it's quite simply a great movie.

    There's something about Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson together in this film. It's as if they are truly feeding off of each other's energies. Jack & Diane are the perfect mix for Nancy Meyers' finest work to date. It's really, really special. Expand

    I thought this was a pretty cool movie (plus Keanu Reeves is so HOT!) and also very funny at times.

    A movie for older people, but me, a teen, found it entertaining from time to time, thanks to good performances.

    If Nicholson and Keaton weren't in this, no one would care one whit about the movie. The acting is good (though not their best), the cinematography is excellent, but the story is cliche, boring, and the dialogue is stilted and predictable. Expand

    Sorry, i loved the cast, jack is great, but this movie is utterly boring. predictable from the first second till the end. ok. i didn't saw the end cause i fell asleep, but anyone could have guessed. besides this movie has no music. even my wife couldn't watch this house of pure boredom. Expand
