Music and Lyrics (2007)
Critic Consensus: Music & Lyrics is a light and pleasant romantic comedy that succeeds because of the considerable charm of its co-stars. The music segments featuring Hugh Grant are worth the price of admission.

Critic Reviews for Music and Lyrics
It's more fun than a Spandau Ballet/Tears for Fears concert circa 1985, and I mean that in a good way.
Light, sweet and agreeably confident
This isn't just a chick flick wallowing in moon-spoon-June levels of Hallmark mush; it's the 'Macarena' of cut-rate rom-coms.
We're clearly deep into romantic-comedy territory here, so it's a good thing we're also in the hands of excellent guides.
I don't think the ending is up to the rest of the movie, but Grant and Barrymore are great together, and the movie has both zing and song.
Audience Reviews for Music and Lyrics
Love this movie. Okay, I think it's more than a bit a rehash of The Wedding Singer, but I can excuse that because it's just such fun to watch! 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.
Good original rom com. Very catchy music and excellent take on Wham duo. Hugh Grant plays a 80s pop star who has lost his glory. He teams up with a hip new songstress who wants him to write a song for them but he gets writer's block. A girl (Drew) who waters his plants helps him out.
The first five minutes were pure gold and the rest of the film an everlasting backslide. But the two leads are pretty charismatic, so it wasn't, like, a complete waste of time. The love song is nice in a poppy, catchy kind of way.
