We gave it a B-

For reasons only a Hollywood movie can explain, an unapologetically callow ’80s pop has-been (Hugh Grant) teams up with a ditzy plant-waterer (Drew Barrymore) to write a song for a serene, Buddhism-obsessed pop starlet who writhes around like Shakira. They have only a matter of a days to come up with a hit, fall in love, or both. (Feb. 14)
