    Music and Lyrics
    A professional collaboration between a popular lyricist and a washed-up musician takes a decidedly personal turn as the pair gradually finds their relationship developing into something much deeper in a romantic comedy directed by Marc Lawrence and starring Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant. Alex Fletcher (Grant) may have been all the rage in the 1980s, but these days he's lucky to get a gig playing at the local county fair. Just when it seems as if things couldn't get any more bleak for the dejected has-been rocker, reigning pop diva Cora Corman (Haley Bennett) offers Alex the opportunity of a lifetime -- write and record a duet to be sung with her and watch his career receive a much-needed boost as the nostalgia-crazed public laps it up. Little does Cora realize that not only has it been years since Alex has written a song, but he's never actually written a single lyric. Now, if he hopes to make the comeback needed to save him from a life of complete and utter obscurity, Alex will have to craft a radio-friendly hit in a matter of mere days. Luckily for Alex, his quirky plant-keeper Sophie Fisher (Barrymore) has quite a way with words and may possess just the kind of songwriting talent needed to make such a hit happen. Unfortunately the beguiling Sophie is still reeling from a recent break-up with newly famous novelist Sloan Cates (Campbell Scott), and she isn't quite sure if she's ready for any kind of collaboration right now -- romantic or otherwise. Despite Alex's hesitation to commit and Sophie's reluctance to collaborate, the pair quickly discovers that a little chemistry can go a long way in healing the wounds of the past and laying the foundation for a much-deserved future of happiness and success. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A Great Romantic Mucsical Comedy


      First of all, Jason Buchanan of All Movie Guide, while giving the description of the movie does not seem to have seen the movie! "A professional collaboration between a popular lyricist and a washed-up musician...." Music and Lyrics is NOT about a "popular lyricist and a washed-up musician". Barrymore's character was a frustrated writer/plant-care-taker whose confidence was undermined by her college writing professor. The collaboration was pure accidental, which leads to the merry chase of trial and error in writing a song and beginning romance. Although light-hearted, there is an underlying message reminding you life is a ride--you take the chances to enjoy the ride or you can play it safe and just exist. The music is enjoyable and the rock videos reminiscent of the 80's are hysterical. As a plus, I was pleasantly surprised to witness Barrymore & Grant's singing!

      Music and Lyrics is a must-have movie!


      This movie is about a has-been 80's pop icon (Hugh Grant) that is faced with the task of writing a song for pop diva "Cora". His mildly-eccentric plant lady (Drew Barrymore) becomes his lyricist and they find themselves falling for each other. Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore are GREAT together as they have genuine chemistry! The songs are beautiful and catchy and you'll find yourself humming or singing the tunes long after you've watched the movie! Fantastic romantic-comedy with emotion and a great soundtrack! I recommend this to everyone!

      Good romantic comedy


      The King and Queen of romantic comedies Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore team up for this funny take on the music industry. Hugh and Drew have great chemistry and they are really good together, probably better than her and Adam Sandler. The script is good, Hugh gets the best lines that either make you smile or laugh out loud. The buying point for this movie is the music, from the 80s pop to current love ballads the music is the best part of this movie and a great reason to pick this DVD up.

      :) Wonderful!


      The first time I saw this movie, was at my friend's birthday party. She said it was a good movie and I said Okay, let's watch it. But in my heart, I was thinking it was stupid. I mean... What kind of title is Music and Lyrics? But during the movie, I had a change of Heart. The music in the movie is catchy and fun. It really reminds you of the 80's. I was totally in love with the songs, so after the party, I went straight to Best Buy and bought it!

      Happy go lucky movie


      This movie has a great feel good feeling. Drew Barrymore is very funny and true to form. This movie is a great throwback to the 80's with over the top videos, clothes and the one hit wonder. This movie is a great date movie.
