Richard LaGravenese calls his post-divorce saga Living Out Loud ”a closet musical” — and judging from the fact that he gives Danny DeVito a vocal number, you might think his favorite musical is Paint Your Wagon. Actually, DeVito almost comes within spitting distance of carrying a tune, albeit bested by Queen Latifah’s creditable three-tune turn as lounge diva. Still, a revival of Brownstone’s slinky ”If You Love Me” — the new soundtrack for all lipstick lesbian bar fantasies — is the understandable consumer draw B
