Music & Lyrics - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant) is a washed-up 80s pop star who’s been reduced to working the nostalgia circuit at county fairs and amusement parks. The charismatic and talented musician gets a chance at a comeback when reigning diva Cora Corman invites him to write and record a duet with her, but there’s a problem – Alex hasn’t written a song in years, he’s never written lyrics, and he has to come up with a hit in a matter of days. Enter Sophie Fisher (Drew Barrymore), Alex’s beguilingly quirky plant lady, whose flair for words strikes a chord with the struggling songwriter. On the rebound from a bad relationship, Sophie is reluctant to collaborate with anyone, especially commitment-phobe Alex. As their chemistry heats up at the piano and under it, Alex and Sophie will have to face their fears – and the music – if they want to find the love and success they both deserve. The film co-stars Brad Garrett as Alex’s steadfast manager, and Kristen Johnston as Sophie’s sister, Rhonda. Newcomer Haley Bennett plays young, pop-princess Cora Corman.

MOVIE REVIEW

Music & Lyrics stars Hugh Grant in the role he plays so well in just about every movie he's in, but... he does play it oh so well. Drew Barrymore plays the love interest this time around, and the result is an enjoyable but not outstanding romantic comedy.
