Description

First you're hot, then you're not...and then you're Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant). So when the sizzlingest tween-queen on the charts asks the has-been '80s pop sensation to write her a song, he grabs for another chance at stardom. Problem: Alex can say it with music, but he sure can't say it with words. Enter Sophie Fisher (Drew Barrymore, his beguiling if quirky plant lady, who has a green thumb for lyrics. Together, they go after songwriting success -- and discover that if you want to write the perfect love song, it helps to fall in love. With Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore at the keyboard and Marc Lawrence (Two Weeks Notice) directing, Music and Lyrics is a witty, wacky romantic comedy that faces the music...and laughs!

    The 5 star reviews seem a bit over the top, and the music is actually awful, not sure why people take that seriously, but Drew and Hugh are fun to watch together, and they're able to carry the film, a lot of which is just the 2 of them on the screen.
  • Formulaic 'hugh grant' RomCom

    What I liked most about this movie wasthe message of bringing 'soul' into a song. I'm a big fan of the movie, "Love Actually" and I would not rate this movie as high as Love Actually. Well acted but there seemed to be a lack of chemistry between Hugh and Drew. Although, I must say, I believe that Hugh helped tone down Drew's usual ditziness. Rent this if you have no other choices or want some visuals while playing Pocket Frogs.

    Hugh Grant is one of my favorites, and he does not disappoint in this film. Loved that he played a 'washed up' musician ready to throw himself back in the spotlight. Drew Barrymore was great in her role, and I loved how she and Grant worked so well together. Their characters are nicely developed as the story progresses. Well worth the time. Very enjoyable.
  • Great movie and soundtrack!

    These are two actors I would have never thought about putting together but it worked. I love the chemistry between all the actors. It's witty, comical, and laugh out loud hilarious!

    I love Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant's chemistry and budding romance. Drew Barrymore is a dream girl in this movie. Their duet is touching and Grant's voice is awesome, I though he was a real singer. It's a touching, rewarding love story that shows hard work and positive thinking and actions yield positive results.
  • Really good
