Just in time for Valentine's Day is a romantic comedy with a song in its heart. We're checking out Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant in Music and Lyrics!

Music and Lyrics - Facing the Music

Alex (Hugh Grant) is a washed up '80s pop-star who has come to accept his has-been status, but things start to look up when is asked to write a song for a modern pop diva named Cora (Hayley Bennett). The only problem is that Alex hasn't written music for years. Cue Sophie (Drew Barrymore), the girl who waters Alex's plants and has a remarkable way with words.

Music and Lyrics - You Can Duet

Sophie is on the rebound from a relationship with her old literature professor who dumped her after using her as the main character for his latest book. Together Sophie and Alex work on the song that could possibly re-launch Alex's career. But, of course, their collaboration is bound to become more than professional.

Music and Lyrics - Making the Band

The big drama centers around whether Cora will like Way Back Into Love, the song Alex and Sophie have written. Part Madonna, part Britney (in her prime), Cora is the key to Alex's comeback. But does he have what it takes to write a hit or will he have to resort to celebrity boxing?! You'll have to watch to find out!

Music and Lyrics - DVD Review

There aren't a ton of extras on this DVD but there are enough to keep you occupied for a little while after the movie ends. Check out deleted scenes, a great gag reel with lots of clips of Hugh and Drew and a music video for the single from the flick, Pop! Goes My Heart.

Music and Lyrics - The Bottom Line

While Music and Lyrics isn't going to win any awards for originality (a lot of elements are too directly ripped-off from Love, Acutally), but the performances from Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant more than make up for that. The story is sweet without being saccharine and full of funny one-liners. Whether you've got a date or you're going it solo this Valentine's Day, Music and Lyrics will leave you humming a happy tune.
