Story


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, Kristen Johnston as Sophie's sister, Rhonda, and Campbell Scott as Sophie's novelist ex-boyfriend. Newcomer Haley Bennett plays young, pop princess Cora Corman.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Lovely and long-lasting, but nowhere near as memorable as roses or orchids in a color that will take your breath away..”
by Barbara Vancheri [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]
“..Silly and enjoyable, but superficial and formulaic..”
by Rich Cline [Shadows on the Wall]
“..a formulaic affair that cruises along on the strength of Hugh Grant's droll asides..”
by Bill Muller [The Arizona Republic]
