  1. The moments between the characters are absolutely full. It's a pleasure to watch such consummate professionals.
  2. Diane Keaton has the crucial role, and she makes the most of it.
  3. Doesn't always sizzle, but its stars do.

    The movie, which ricochets between farce and poignancy, casts just enough romantic pixie dust to leave you smiling. It's certainly not the last word on the subject, but it's an amiable start.

    It's a glossy, somewhat condescending comedy, with all the substance of a cone of soft vanilla ice cream.
  6. 63
    Keaton's overamped girlishness, and the adolescent shenanigans she engages in, make a mockery of this overlong romantic comedy's stance as a celebration of mature love.
  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.

    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.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.

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. Collapse
