Storyline

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 <N2XFYLS@aol.com>

I always liked this movie

Haven't watched Duets for quite a while but took it out the other day for a treat. I always liked this movie for really one reason. It's different. I mean seriously... a movie about a karaoke hustler? Who ever heard of a singing hustler. There are a few problems with it. Gynetth Paltow... wow, a really horrible performance. They could have gotten any amateur actress to do the role and it would have come out the same. The story has some huge holes as well. When Todd (Paul Giamattie) and Reggie (Andre Braugher) are in the convenience story and Todd pulls the gun, it is implied that they either shoot or kill the store clerk. When the police come looking for Reggie in the final scene and kill him, they would have figured out already that Todd was with Reggie and was the second person in the store. Todd would have been arrested for his part in the murder. But no one even questions him and he goes on with his life knowing he took part in the murder of an innocent man. Also the part of Suzi Loomis (Maria Bello) is despicable. She offer sexual favors to any man to get something in return and Billy (Scott Speedman) think she's a pig - but in the end they end up together. Any normal guy would stay away from this girl or go get a shot of penicillin. But he ends up with. No matter, this is one film I'll pull out again in a year and watch and still enjoy it.
