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. Written by
In the hotel scene with Scott Speedman and Maria Bello, Scott sits with his shirt off. We see him wearing a gold necklace with a Broken Heart pendant hanging on it; it is the other half of Gwyneth's necklace, the one she claims her father gave her on her 3rd birthday. This is never explained in the movie. See more »

Wonderful! Charming, uplifting, and real. The beautiful music is a bonus...
Excellent! "Duets" is definitely outside of what I had expected it to be... it is outside of the only-on-it-for-the-money, watch-the-weekend-grosses Hollywood sell-out that everyone complains about. It is a wonderful story, full of surprises and charm. The characters are 3-dimensional, to be sure. Their stories are not always pretty, and certainly not predictable. I was always entertained, engrossed, and ultimately very uplifted. Huey lewis could make it as an actor, and Gwyneth Paltrow could make it as a singer, both without any gimmicky "pr" work to present them as a stunt. They, and the entire cast of unknown actors were top-notch here. The music is real, and means something to the movie, and it all meant a lot to me. Yaay "Duets"! Go see it-- it has tons of heart, and soul. You'll love it. I gave it a 10 out of 10.
