“Music and Lyrics”

I saw this movie tonight using free passes that Wells Fargo gave me for my birthday.  It’s a romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant.  It’s about an aging ’80s pop star who needs to write a hit song by the end of the week for the latest huge young sexy singer.  He only does the music, so gets the woman who takes care of the plants at his apartment to do the lyrics.  Some humor ensues.

It was ok.  There wasn’t a whole lot of plot development, and Drew Barrymore’s character was kind of annoying.  The songs were the real stars.  I chuckled a few times, but didn’t really laugh out loud at all.  Actually, I can’t remember that last time that I was truly laughing, the uncontrollable laughing that feels so good while making it hard to breathe and hard to not wet your pants.

    Hmm. Guess that puts an end to any ideas about me seeing it. Drew Barrymore’s characters are (in my opinion) usually kind of annoying in general.
