Product Overview

A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written lyrics in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.

Review "It's a given that most romantic comedies exist in a parallel universe, one that relies on contrivance and coincidence to fulfill its characters' wishes. When done right, it's easy to forgive their far-fetched twists and unlikely attractions and get lost in the fantasy of funny, appealing people falling in love against all odds. Unfortunately, Music and Lyrics is not one of those pictures, but rather an assembly-line rom-com with a setup so artificial it'll test the good will of even the most starry-eyed moviegoers...One final sour note: Kristen Johnston (TV's Third Rock From the Sun), on-hand as Sophie's pushy older sister, is so badly shot she should sue. For someone playing the proprietor of a diet business (rip-snortingly named ""Weight-Not""), she looks positively Amazonian."

Review "One would be justified in approaching Music and Lyrics with a certain amount of skepticism, considering that its writer/director, Marc Lawrence, is perhaps known for foisting two Miss Congenialitys upon the world (although to be fair, he didn't direct either - he just wrote and produced them). Yet, despite the feeble pedigree, Music and Lyrics turns out to be a better than average romantic comedy where the characters click and, unusual for movies of the genre, there are instances when genuine laughter bubbles up. This may be due largely to Hugh Grant, who understands the concept of comic timing and is able to deliver one liner after one liner in precisely the manner necessary to make them funny...The movie fails to achieve a position in the top echelon of romantic comedies, but it resides high enough in the pecking order to be worth a look by anyone with a penchant for the genre."

Quotes
Claudia Puig, USA Today ...appealing...infuses the overall plot with a satire of the music industry, and the pop tunes and lyrics are catchy.
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune A satisfying scoop of audiovisual comfort food.
Dan Jewel, Life & Style Hilarious, sweetly romantic and as infectious as a great pop song, this one hits all the right notes.
Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun This movie doesn't pretend to be anything more than a cheerful night out, and on that count it scores.
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer ...an unusually witty and intelligent romantic comedy and Hollywood's best Valentine's Day gift in years.
