Music and Lyrics

Watched Music and Lyrics yesterday, and must admit to having mixed feelings about the movie.

Obviously, I laughed at all the 80s-style antics, particularly all the gyrating that Hugh Grant performed with such gusto. haha! Just the thought of it still brings a smile to my face even now.

Having said that, I must admit that I didn't enjoy the movie as much as I thought I would, partly because of the stress from driving 1.5 hours to the theatre through a construction-induced gridlock, partly because we missed the first 10 minutes of the movie, and also partly because a friend had raved about the movie just a couple of days before and had really raised my expectations.

But I'm still glad that I watched it. The traffic jam also gave me an opportunity to spend time chatting with my gal-pal E, who was such a good sport despite being stuck in traffic right smack through the lunch hour. Plus any movie with Drew Barrymore is automatically a must-see for me anyway, especially if it's a chick-flick! hehe.
