Some well-written scenes between Nicholson (who slyly plays a grouchy old womanizer) and Keaton and these middle sequences, wherein the two grow close together, are the film's best. However, there are too many sappy scenes to make the film great. For one, Keaton is incredibly annoying when she "cries," (and the movie has no shortage of those scenes), and, for two, the film wraps up in Paris in what feels like a rushed and coincidental conclusion.

Is there such thing as a sophisticated romantic comedy anymore? Honestly, come on. No matter what the film is, there is always this hint of immaturity waved around that keeps it away from being a truly mature film. But, low and behold, we have one of the best romantic comedies in years here. Coming from the romantic expert Nancy Meyers, whom was responsible for the awesome What Women Want, crafts another witty and charming film about the ups and downs of relationships and dating.

Definitely a must see.

Diane Keaton is perfect as an uptight playwright Erica Barry, a divorcee who has avoided any entanglements since her marriage ended years ago. Harry is dating her knock-out 31 year old daughter Marin, played by (Amanda Peet) who plays his latest 'lover', but in fact they have not actually 'done it' yet.
That night Harry suffers a near-fatal heart attack while the two are “fooling around” at her mom's beach house and is taken to the hospital where his hunky Physician Julian Mercer (Keanu Reeves) takes care of him but also takes a fancy to the older but still sexy Erica. (I did enjoy that Keanu …
