It figures that a film in which Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow make goo-goo-doll eyes at each other features mopey melodies for sensitive college grads. The surprise is how hooky many of them are, especially cuts by slickster songwriters like Duncan Sheik and Lauren Christy; even Tori Amos shows renewed focus on ”Siren.” Despite throwaways by the likes of Stone Temple Pilots lead recoverer Scott Weiland (who thinks his future lies in pretending to be Jim Morrison singing a waltz), Great Expectations surpasses our own lessened expectations for alt-rock movie grab bags.
