Music and Lyrics Reviews
I love the Pop song too, even though Hugh Grant probably shouldn't sing. I have to admit after my first rewatch in years, I upgraded this to five stars and got on eBay looking for the soundtrack!
Cora is a great character too, I enjoyed her parts.
Drew Barrymore need I say more. She does these funny rom com roles so well, and her clothes are beautiful here too.
The bit where Hugh's washed up rock star nearly puts his hip out doing his moves on stage gave me a laugh.
Anyway, it's entirely a serviceable chick flick, but fun enough for anyone to get caught up in without being TOO embarrassed. Not worth going out and renting, but maybe for catching on television.
i like the storyline it sort of states the meaning you dont know what you loved and wanted the most unitll you lose it!
Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore act good together and they have a good on-screen chemistry. Does Grant do any other roles than romcoms? Is he so badly typecast?
It's totally predictable, has a great 80's soundtrack (Grant sings his songs by himself!) but a terrible modern soundtrack with these awful Britney-like pop songs. Still I enjoyed it cuz there's a lot of dialogue in it that's really good and funny.
