This is your basic rom-com, made from your basic rom-com blue prints. It is, like most of its genre, a nice watch. Easy to follow, warm and fuzzy, inevitably forgettable.
The only thing that makes 'Music & Lyrics' worth my recommendation is the tongue-in-cheek way it was made. It doesn't expect to be taken seriously, it doesnt pretend to deal with any real issues. A further plus is the wonderful 80's song, sung by Alex Fletcher's (Hugh Grant) has been band 'Pop'...it is a hilarious and entirely accurate parody of the 80's pop song and video, which I could no stop singing for days.
