A preview of movies opening this Friday:

Jack Nicholson, right, plays a record exec who fancies young women and unexpectedly falls for his new girlfriend's mother played by Diane Keaton, left, in "Something's Gotta Give." Keanu Reeves, center, plays a young doctor who is also smitten with her.

"Love Don't Cost a Thing": "Drumline" stud Nick Cannon brings 1987's "Can't Buy Me Love" to a whole new generation, starring in the Patrick Dempsey role as a geek who tries to up his cool quotient at school by hiring a cheerleader (Christina Milian) to play his girlfriend. (PG-13)

"Something's Gotta Give": Director Nancy Meyers follows up her Mel Gibson hit "What Women Want" with a romantic comedy, starring Jack Nicholson, in a role Meyers specifically wrote for. He plays an aging record exec with an eye for younger women who unexpectedly falls for the playwright mother (Diane Keaton) of his new girlfriend, played by Amanda Peet. Turning the love triangle into a square is Keanu Reeves as a doctor who also has affections for Mom. (PG-13)

"Stuck on You": Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear star as conjoined twins who move from Massachusetts to Hollywood to pursue one brother's dream of being a star. When the twins get to Los Angeles, they soon find themselves landing a job on a TV show starring Cher, which results in quick fame and fortune. Will the new changes in their lives ultimately drive the twins apart? Peter and Bobby Farrelly ("There's Something About Mary," "Me Myself & I" and "Shallow Hal") insist they're not ridiculing their heroes. "They're complete winners," said Peter. "They have a successful business, they were the kings of the prom and they were on the state champion hockey team" ... as the goalie, of course. (PG-13)

ALSO IN theatrical re-release at the Ward multiplex will be "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," anticipating Dec. 17's nationwide release of the final part of the trilogy, "The Return of the King." ("The Fellowship of the Ring" is screening at Ward through Thursday.)
