Format: DVD
Since I complained that neither my wife nor I were reduced to tears by the end game of "Catch and Release," our previous romantic comedy, I can tell you right off the bat that we both cried at the appropriate moment in "Music and Lyrics," which is reason enough to round up on this early 2007 film. But writer-director Marc Lawrence (who scripted both of the "Miss Congeniality" movies) knows that the climax of a good romantic comedy requires a grand gesture of love. We know this not only because he provides one, but also because he sets it up by having a character point out the way you know when somebody is the one for you is when they do something that illustrates passion.

You have to think that Hugh Grant's funny dance through 10 Downing Street in "Love Actually" was an implicit audition for his role here as Alex Fletcher, the keyboard player and composer from the 70's hit group Pop, and if you are looking for a parallel in real world music history I would say think Andrew Ridgeley after George Michaels went solo and you are in the ballpark. We are introduced to Pop at the height of their popularity and the music video of their signature song "Pop Goes My Heart," where Alex and his Colin Thompson (Scott Porter) cavort in post-disco glam pop style. But that was then and now Alex is being courted for an episode of "Battle of the 70's Has-Beens," while Colin is a successful solo act (another reason I round up on this movie is that it refrains from Alex ever meeting Colin, which is a tired cliche in such films). Then Alex has a meet with Cora Corman (Haley Bennett), the pop diva of the moment, who wants him to write a new duet and do it by the end of the week.

Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant) from the 1980s band named PoP, needs to write a song within the next few days for Cora Corman (Haley Bennett), an internationally acclaimed singer. Soon Alex meets Sophie Fisher (Drew Barrymore) who apparently has a talent for writing lyrics, but refuses to acknowledge it.

Filled with references to 1980s music bands, this is a light romantic comedy for those fans of such music & lyrics. Drew & Hugh have a nice chemistry, and sing rather well (they did the singing parts themselves). Brad Garrett is just perfect as Alex's manager, and hilarious as always.

A good comedy from start to finish. Never one dull moment.

By Moodywoody TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 23 2010
Format: DVD
In Music and Lyrics, Hugh Grant delivers his typical performance, that in which he plays a cute and likeable bon vivant with a dry sense of humour. It is amazing how he can do the same kind of performance with his characters over and over again, and yet still leave the audience wanting more. His success lies in the fact that he has developed a unique screen persona, say like James Cagney or Clint Eastwood, that audiences can easily remember or identify.

In this film, he plays a singer songwriter who had his glory years in the early 80's, but now earns a living on the cheap nostalgia circuit performing at any event that will have him. He meets up with a young writer, played by Drew Barrymore, struggling to find her own footing in life, and notices that she has a gift for lyrics. This is fortunate, since he has been given the opportunity to write a song for a major pop star, and needs a lyricist to work with him.

This is not a great comedy by any means, but it does deliver a satisfying viewing experience due to its easy going manner. It has some catchy tunes, the odd funny parody, a sweet romance between Hugh and Drew, and some good comedic moments with the funniest part of the film, which is their interactions with the pop star, Cora, played with brilliant and sexy relish by Haley Bennett.

Not a bad way to relax and spend an hour and a half.
