Music and Lyrics
Music and Lyrics – yet another Hugh Grant movie. I think Hugh Grant does not get the attention he deserves. He signs good romantic comedy movies – Notting Hill, Two Weeks Notice, Bridget Jones etc. I love him for his cute accent, even cuter face and of course he is a charming man! I wonder how many of you admire him for his typical British accent and cute smile. Well admiration’s apart..
Alex Fletcher, played by Hugh Grant, is a retro star lost in the modern changed pop world. He has lost his admirers, cannot compose good music or lyrics, he is getting old and he finds it hard to accept the business nature of his art. Cora, a pop icon and Alex’s fan, wants him to compose lyrics for her in few days. But how can he do it?
Sophie Fisher, Drew Barrymore, comes into picture. She is a plant caretaker at his apartment, speaks a lot, is a lost writer, messes with Alex’s piano and always waters the plastic plants.
Of course it has a happy ending and all. The lyrics is hit, Alex finds his lost charm, Sophie gets a sweet revenge and they fall in love.
But a sweet, pleasant surprise in the movie is the opening soundtrack, with Hugh Grant in retro look. It’s called Pop Goes my Heart. We loved it, I mean me and Deepa and have been singing it since yesterday…whenever she was down she would go – Pop goes my heart!
I won’t say it was a fantastic movie but surely a pleasant watch, worth the money!
