A Feel Good Romantic Comedy…

It’s not my thing to blog about movies but, what the heck? When you see a good one might as well share it with the populace. I watched Music and Lyrics last night on HBO.

It’s about Alex Fletcher who lives in Manhattan singing songs from his 80’s hit group Pop’s albums. When his friend/manager Chris, Riley (Brad Garret – Everybody loves Raymond) gets him a chance to write for a teen sensation, he takes it. Trouble is, he’s good at melodies but needs a lyricist and has less than a week to finish. Sophie Fisher, who is subbing for a friend to waters Alex’s plants; is a pretty good poet, quick witted, and could do it, if she’d agree. But there’s some sort of shadow over her head that Alex may not be able to charm his way past…

The movie basically is a feel good, romantic comedy. Hugh does not disappoint but, Drew Barrymore does in some scenes. Some corny one liner’s and a few sentimental twists are expected in a movie like this and in spite of all this, it’s a good time pass. I liked four of the songs in the movie, they were easy on the ears and had nice catchy lyrics. Oh! By the way Hugh and Drew can sing and they do sing a romantic duet.
