Music From Another Room is a romantic comedy that follows the exploits of Danny, a young man who grew up believing he was destined to marry the girl he helped deliver as a five year old boy when his mother's best friend went into emergency labor. Twenty-five years later, Danny returns to his hometown and finds the irresistible Anna Swan but she finds it easy to resist him since she is already engaged to dreamboat Eric, a very practical match. In pursuit of Anna, Danny finds himself entangled with each of the eccentric Swans including blind, sheltered Nina, cynical sister Karen, big brother Bill and dramatic mother Grace as he fights to prove that fate should never be messed with and passion should never be practical.

Jude Law has a very obvious and pronounced cleft in his chin. The young actor who plays Danny as a child has a perfectly smooth chin. This is particularly glaring when the scene goes from a close up of the boy's face directly to a close up of Jude Law as the adult Danny. See more »

I found myself hating and loving this movie throughout the entire running time. Other than Gretchen Mol, there are some good performances, but the screenplay fails time and again to latch onto a real emotion or life-situation. I really like Jude Law but I think he was supposed to have turned this part down when it was offered.
However, the movie was made for me by Vincent Laresca, who played Jesus. He was so unbelievably nice and loving to Jennifer Tilly's character that I cried at his performance. Thank you, Vincent, and congratulations on your career.
