Yeah, I know, I know, my friends will laugh at me if they know I watch this movie. They would protest my inconsistency *smile*. Some of them had once said that when I have my hot black coffee and have my “serious” movies and books, then they know that I’m OK. Otherwise, they say that they should be worried *smile*. Just last night Wenda protested me for having Starbucks’ coffee frappuccino instead of my usual hot black coffee… boleh dong sekali-sekali beda, he, he,…
OK, back to laptop (Tukul’s trade mark)… here’s Music & Lyrics synopsis:
Alex Fletcher, a washed-up ’80s pop star, has 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, 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-phobia 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.
Imagine Hugh Grant plays George Michael with all that 80’s hair, clothing, and dance styles *smile*. I guess I was the only one who grew up in the 80’s because all of the young audience in this theater didn’t laugh when they see all that 80’s stuffs!
Hmm… I should have watched this movie with all my girl friends, so I wouldn’t be the only one who laughed when they had the 80’s scenes, or, when Cora “the Britney Spears’ impersonation in this movie” enacted that famous Britney’s performance in the latter part of her career before she got confused (and got married) *smile*.
This is the movie review from Kompas: Film dibuka dengan kilas balik berupa klip video Alex di masa jaya era 1980-an. Hawa pentas musik pop era 1980-an terasa kuat. Gaya nyanyi, pakaian dan tata rambut Alex mengingatkan pada gaya George Michael dan Andrew Ridgeley dalam kelompok WHAM! Awak band Alex tampil dengan potongan rambut dan tata rias cowok klimis ala grup Duran Duran. Itu gaya khas era 1980-an yang disemangati tren new romantic dan berkembang di Inggris. [read more…]
Overall, this is a movie worth to watch when you have nothing to do, don’t mind to spend money for the movie ticket, and need a good laugh at silly things, he, he,…
