I rented this movie a while back only expecting a half-way decent movie. It might have had a few good scenes, but it would be unlikely that it will blow me away. Boy was I wrong! Music and Lyrics defines what a romantic comedy should be. It has wits and a great cast. Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore were terrific together and the plot progression keeps you intrigued. This film is definitely on my "must-buy" list and it may be on yours after watching it.

Washed up boy band singer, Alex Fletcher is given a chance to regain his fame when a pop sensation offers him the deal of a lifetime. All he has to do is write a song. Sounds simple, right? Well, it may have been if he could think of some lyrics. That is where Sophie comes in. She becomes quite more than a quirky gardener (I guess that is what you would call it, she just waters plants). During one of her visits, Sophie accidentally interrupts one of Alex's sessions with a lyricist that is helping him write the song. What she didn't realize, is that her idea just saved his sinking career and she may become famous herself.

This is my favorite Drew Barrymore movie. She was okay in 50 First Dates and Charlie's Angels, but she really shows off her acting ability. Though most would disagree, I believe that the chemistry on screen was amazing. They just...fit. If you are looking for something that will make you laugh and cry this is it. There is nothing else that I would recommend. Music and Lyrics deserves ever star it has received.

My Rating = Four and a Half Stars
