Hugh Grant plays the failed half of an 80's pop band (think the other guy from Wham!). He gets an offer to write a duet with a Britney clone. The trouble is that he can only write music. He needs someone else to give him the lyrics.
In comes Drew Barrymore to water his plants. It turns out that she's a writer and the two click. If they can overcome her literary demons. And if they can get past his lack of confidence.
This is a very charming movie. Grant plays a wonderfully befuddled man. Barrymore stretches her acting chops here a bit and does a very nice job as a complicated woman. She could honestly have come from the pages of a Woody Allen script (and I mean that as a compliment).
The story works well. And the music? Plenty of fun 80's pop. It's well worth watching.
