Music and Lyrics (9-Feb-2007)

Director: Marc Lawrence

Writer: Marc Lawrence

Keywords: Comedy

A past-his-prime singer, great with melodies yet terrible with lyrics, connects with a charming wordsmith when he is asked to compose a hit song.

Alex Fletcher, once a hot musical commodity in the 1980s, now spends his days playing low-rent gigs and reminiscing about happier times. A promising offer to write a song for pop star Cora Corman in a matter of days presents a challenge for Alex, as he has never actually written a single lyric in his life despite a gift for melodies. Enter Sophie Fisher, Alex's gardener and a talented wordsmith whose reluctant collaboration with the washed-up singer produces promising results and an unexpected romance with mere days to go before Cora's deadline.
