We gave it a C-

Director Bruce Paltrow probably had plenty of reasons to pass on this cross country karaoke themed drama — the most obvious being that it’s a CROSS COUNTRY KARAOKE THEMED DRAMA. As three pairs of starry eyed social misfits (including Huey Lewis and the director’s blonder, more famous offspring) head to a sing off out West, they bounce from bar to bar, evading their pasts — and, after a roadside murder, the law — as much as possible. Stuffed with thinly constructed characters and glaringly predictable story arcs, Duets hits all the wrong notes.
