"Music and Lyric" is a delighful musical about two songwriter who are figuring out what to write for a pop star. Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore gave a great performance. the chemistry between them is fun to watch. I really like this movie. Especially watching the pop star. she's hot too.

To like this movie, you need to be a Hugh Grant fan. He's not my favorite actor, but I have enjoyed many of his previous movies. His on-screen chemistry with Julia Roberts in Notting Hill was very effective, and they had a great supporting cast in that movie. The chemistry with Drew Barrymore is less effective here, but they are both likable enough that it doesn't matter all that much.

The theme of the movie is much more effective. Its take on the '80s music scene with the cheesy music video that introduces the movie and the caricature of contemporary pop diva Cora Corman as a blend of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, with a swirl of Madonna mixed in for good measure, was very enjoyable. The final product of Grant's and Barrymore's efforts is pure pop, but very listenable. It took quite some time to get the tune out of my head after seeing the movie!

The movie is predictable, a little saccharine, and doesn't cover any real new ground. However, it's a romantic comedy and not "Pride and Prejudice" so it will serve as good entertainment for a date night with your romantic partner of choice.
