While there is not much chemistry between Mr. Grant and Ms. Barrymore, they are professional enough to work with the movie's conceit while sending flickers of idiosyncratic charm off the screen. Full Review

The two generate more heart than they do heat, but that's the point. You want to see them together not just because they're adorable, but because you believe that their characters can take each other to a place neither could get to on their own. Full Review

USA Today
This appealing romantic comedy undertakes the conventions of the formula without an inordinate amount of clichs. Music also infuses the overall plot with a satire of the music industry, and the pop tunes and lyrics are catchy. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Music and Lyrics is frequently appealing, often witty, and occasionally funny, but it's not going to convert skeptics and cynics into sentimentalists. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Remember "The Flight of the Phoenix," the movie about the misshapen plane, built from scavenged parts, that flies its builders to safety? Music and Lyrics is like that plane, up to a point. The plot is misshapen, the pieces are scavenged and nothing quite fits. The film does manage to take off, albeit barely, then flits around cheerfully in search of coherence, but finally crashes and fizzles. Full Review
