Music and Lyrics

Quick thoughts about Music and Lyrics - watching Music and Lyrics was like going in to see a good covers band. Very predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless. You want Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore to reprise the roles they've come to claim as their own - Hugh enjoyably wry, Drew bubbly and somewhat kooky. And they do it well, despite a predictable plot. Hugh, in particular, clearly has fun as Alex Fletcher, a washed-up less famous half of former 80s sensation PoP. (There's more than a little of Wham in PoP, and more than a little Andrew Ridgely in Grant's character.)

I enjoyed this movie too. Here in Paris it is known as Le Comeback.

It's really a nice movie. Simple and sweet.
