Buy it... if you appreciate Alan Silvestri's usual, airy romanticism for similar films, because despite his late departure from this film, the replacement score from Hans Zimmer (and company) sounds remarkably similar to the former composer's equivalent style.

Avoid it... if you seek a substantial or professional presentation of the score, because the long-standing bootlegs of Something's Gotta Give contain rough edits and sound effects by necessity.

Something's Gotta Give: (Hans Zimmer/Various) In one of his later roles as an egotistical playboy, Jack Nicholson is a music and magazine executive with a taste for much younger women in Something's Gotta Give. His world is thrown upside down by a heart attack, however, and in the process of recuperating at the Hamptons beach home of his young lover's mother, he clashes with and eventually falls for the older woman, the film's dynamo played by Diane Keaton. The complicated love triangle expands to include sassy input from an impressive supporting cast, though Something's Gotta Give is best remembered for a Keaton performance that garnered several major awards nominations. Only marginally impressed critics wrote off the 2003 film as a typical genre entry from writer, director, and producer Nancy Myers, though the split distribution of Something's Gotta Give by Columbia and Warner Brothers yielded outstanding fiscal success (it's rare for lightweight romantic comedies to gross over $250 million, especially when up against major franchise hits concurrently in theatres). Myers' habit of relying upon shaky instincts when it comes to the music in her films caused her and many others much trauma in the last days of assembling this picture. Her typical reliance upon a variety of pop tunes of various vintages led to two separate soundtrack compilation albums for Something's Gotta Give (one from each studio), but no score album. Myers' productions to this point, from the Father of the Bride films to What Women Want, had been handled by Alan Silvestri, often with decent results. Unfortunately, her tendency to replace score recordings with songs often diminished the impact of Silvestri's music in such films, and when she reportedly threw out his music for Something's Gotta Give at the last minute, she was left in search of a new collaborator. She found one in Hans Zimmer or, as it should be more accurately noted, Zimmer and his plethora of assistant composers. Just at the moment when Zimmer and longtime associate Jay Rifkin went to court over their joint Media Ventures outfit, Something's Gotta Give landed on the composer at the last minute. Despite receiving full screen credit for the score, Zimmer utilized several of his Media Ventures underlings for additional music, including Ramin Djawadi, James Dooley, James S. Levine, Trevor Morris, Blake Neely, and Heitor Pereira. Even veteran Christopher Young was brought in to write and record a couple of last minute cues. Something's Gotta Give had more music supervisors and editors than productions twice its size, though Zimmer's last-minute coordination efforts led to subsequent collaborations with Myers (including The Holiday and It's Complicated, the latter another album-prohibitive mess).
