Very funny movie. If you love the 80's era, it's worth a watch.

Like a good piece of music that keeps you from changing the station so does this film starts off and ends. As romantic comedies goes its a good one. Never melodramatic and genuinely interesting seeing Hugh Grant put himself and his voice out there as a singer. Not only that its a blast watching Grant make a mockery of the 80's pop celebrity craze. Drew Barrymore has never been better as she plays a genuinely sweet character. Seriously its nice to watch nice people on the big screen from time to time. These are not Hollywood cardboard cut out character or low life degenerates. In the end what makes this romantic film works and other fails is that you actually like these people...and care that they end up together...(whoops did I just give a spoiler away...well c'mon folks it a romantic comedy...ha ha)

Lastly I actually showing the process of writing the song as well as the song was quite enjoyable. Big thumbs up.

Romantic and heart-warming, the film is full of Hugh Grant"s charm, and sprinkled with music of varying genre, some of which are very pleasant to the ear. Performing scenes by Haley Bennett were captivating. The only irritation was that the visual and the sound of some of Grant's performing scenes were clearly out of synchronization.

Music and lyrics is an undeniably charming movie which cast is outstanding, however the story is predictable and very cliched.

Still smiling about the opening song

I think the opening scene of this flick is by far the coolest.  It's a music video for "Pop Goes My Heart" and everything about it screams 80s.  It's hilarious.  The fact that I was laughing as soon as the movie started rolling is a good sign.  The movie has funny moments.  It's not laugh till you drop funny.  However, I recommend this one especially if you dig the 80s.

Pleasant romcom with swinging songs. Grant played his usually breezy self, Drew Barrymore plays her usual innocent, breezy, and naive, vulnerable self with a great deal of charm. Pleasant enjoyable flick.

The first time I saw this, I thought so cheesyand was not amused with the over the top 80s video. A few years go by, it comes on, I watch it again and realized the cheese was what makes it so fun. It has become one of my favorite go to movies when I want a pick me up. I hear different clever lines with every watch as well and the song Pop goes my heart is an earworm.

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.

this movie is exactly what you would expect from a movie with hugh grant and drew barrymore.

Good movie. Hugh and Drew work well together on screen. Great pairing. I wish they would do more movies together.
