Storyline

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.

Goofs

In the scene when Anna runs in and up the stairs, her fiancée and brother (with a cast on his foot) are at the foot of the stairs. They try to stop Anna from going upstairs, and when she still goes up, her brother turns around and it is clearly visible on the back of his cast that it's a slip on (it looks like Velcro might be holding it together).

Quotes

Danny: [chasing after Anna in a taxi, wearing his pig costume] I would marry you tomorrow! I would have children with you, dozens and dozens of children!
Taxi Driver: Let's hope they look like the mother.

Weird mixture, but effective
1 June 1999 | by Boyo-2See all my reviews

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.
