Music and Lyrics (Lawrence, 2007)

Not surprisingly charming, but certainly surprisingly sincere. This film isn’t consumed by the model, i.e. the Hollywood romantic comedy genre, but by the couple themselves and the human traits which stand in their way of love. It’s a really interesting progression, at least for a while, especially during the artistic creative process between a has been pop singer and a slogan writer. Unfortunately, neither Grant nor Barrymore’s character sees the desperation in the other’s eyes for very long, floating through a conflicted environment without a care in the world.
