Duets (2000) – Film Review

Filed under: Film Review,Uncategorized — smackamack @ 4:24 pm


duets-1Plot: Duets is a road-trip comedy which revolves around the little known world of karaoke and the whimsical characters who inhabit it. There’s the struggling singer who dreams of making it to the big time, a frustrated salesman who ends up on an unexpected road trip, the dysfunctional family performers which includes a con-artist and his long lost daughter, and an escaped convict with the voice of an angel. All roads lead to Omaha, site of a national karaoke competition where this motley group of singers and stars come together for a blow-out sing-off.

Duets was directed by Bruce Paltrow and has an al-star cast including his daughter Gwyneth Paltrow. Also, Huey Lewis and Paul Giamatti star!  Again, my dad recommended this film, and it was a lot of fun.  It’s not a great film, but it’s definitely fun.  The story basically focuses around a bunch of couples who come together at a big karaoke championship.  

I recommend this for anyone ages 16+ who are looking for a bit of light hearted fun and music! The music…is great.  3/5 stars.
