Aroview: An infectious romantic comedy that winningly pairs Hugh Grant with Drew Barrymore, this adds music notes to the formula and scores a crowd-pleasing hit.
'Has-been' 80's pop-star Hugh Grant is still ekeing a living out of former glories when he gets a chance to pen a song for the teen sensation of the moment, and finds an unlikely lyric-writing partner in novice Drew Barrymore. Genuine chemistry between the leads and a relationship that develops naturally make this a less-than-guilty pleasure, with satirical jibes about the music business past and present sure to get smiles of recognition from pop-fans of a certain age.

3 stars (Good Enough) Better-than-most rom coms, a washed-up 80's boy-band pop singer teams up with his quirky home-helper to write a song for his come-back performance. Any woman who's ever idolised an 80's pop-star will love it.~GenXGirl
2 stars (Good Try) Wafer thin and contrived, with no chemistry between the leads -it's like they're in different movies-but I've watched this twice and enjoyed it both times, so I guess something (maybe the TV-honed supporting cast) carries the day (or I'm an idiot).~HiFi
