Face the Music Doesn't Quite Make the Beat **1/2
1 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To the other people who have evaluated this film: I have seen a lot worse.

The story centers around a young couple who write and win an award for the best song in a film. While on the dais, the guy (Patrick Dempsey), proposes marriage. You would think this would be the perfect ending. Rather, it's an imperfect beginning to a rather fair film.

The couple soon divorce due to a misunderstanding and go their separate ways. Fast forward to several years later, where Dempsey, now in real-estate and engaged to wed his partner, meets up with his ex-wife. (Molly Ringwald They are given the opportunity to write a song for Moishe, yes I mean Moishe, who is now happily wed to his wife Christine. Moishe and Christine? Lord bless those inter-faith marriages!

This highly predictable film is noteworthy for its light comedy. Will they write the hit song? How will they be drawn back into love? It's highly predictable but somewhat amusing.

You can face this music.
