Music And Lyrics

We had a crazy week last week, and an equally crazy weekend. We somehow managed to get roped in to working box office/concessions up at the castle for Julius Caesar, despite our best intentions to not be involved at all this year. Also, Ben worked about 80 hours this past week, including a nice long day on Saturday, and I tagged along for a good portion of the after hours stuff.

Yesterday I decided to watch one of the movies I had rented in order to spend some quality couch time. The baby was making it known that he was NOT happy with all the time I'd spent running around and it was time to lay down for a while.

The movie of choice was Music and Lyrics. I had gathered some light movies at Hollywood video, knowing that I didn't want to watch anything heavy or depressing, and since I missed this one in the theater, I started with it.

I have to admit, I liked it. It wasn't Shakespeare, but it was clever. I liked the actors, I liked the script, mostly, and it was just downright fun. I'm an unabashed Hugh Grant fan, so I really got a kick out of him playing the silly 80's pop star.

The other 2 movies waiting for a viewing now are Broken English, starring Parker Posey, which I would have loved to see at Sundance, but it was sold out. And Driving Lessons, with Rupert Grint and Julie Walters. I'll let you know how they are when I get around to watching them.

Who DOESN'T like Hugh Grant? As long as you accept that he isn't an actor (because he plays himself in every movie, more or less, which does not consitute acting so much as reading with pretending), what's not to like? Hugh Grant is great.
