Movie Info

Former music superstar Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant) used to pack them in back in the 1980s, but now he is reduced to playing nostalgia tours and county fairs. He scores a chance at a major comeback when reigning pop diva Cora Corman (Haley Bennett) asks him to write a song for her, but he hasn't written anything in years and cannot compose lyrics anyway. Noticing that Sophie (Drew Barrymore), the plant lady, has a way with words, Alex proposes that he and Sophie make beautiful music together.

    One of my favourite rom coms. A must see!

    I've got to say that this is a really likable movie. Hugh Grant is usually always funny and this was no exception. Drew Barrymore also tends to work well in romantic comedies and make them more than just cheap laughs and heart felt stories. This has a music video in the beginning that is maybe one of the greatest mock of an 80s style band i've seen. While it's outrageously great, it's very fun if you're in the mood.

    It was really cute. Incredibly cliched though. Worth a watch. Grade: C

    Romantic Comedy with some funny 80's pop music that I thought was so hilarious. Hugh Grant was amusing and Drew Barrymore was adorable in this cute romantic comedy. I enjoyed this one.
