Something's Gotta Give

I can't imagine that there's any over-40 woman who hasn't seen this film, but it's one of my favorites, and grows on me the older I get.

If you're a single woman of a certain age, you'll recognize the Jack Nicholson character as someone you've encountered on innumerable dates, and from innumerable online dating profiles (you know, the ones where old, paunchy guys photograph themselves on speedboats and next to sports cars).

Absolutely a hilarious film, and worth it just to hear Frances McDormand's gentle rant near the beginning of the picture.  Perfect solo weekend viewing -- reminding yourself why enjoying a weekend pursuing your interests at home can be way more rewarding than that potential coffee date (or, worse, dinner) with that silver, not-so-foxy old fox.

  1. i love this movie as well ! i am not yet over 40 but soon will be.. and its really sad that women dating at a certain age is more difficult than for men, who become more attractive with age ....
