Movie Review: Memorable On-Screen Duets We Love

July 12, 2008

We all know that most actors are better off being actors only (note: Lindsay Lohan and Scarlett Johansson). There are of course exceptions. Here, I present three of my favourite onscreen dueting moments in romantic comedy flicks I really enjoyed watching.

#1 Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher belting out Chicago’s If You Leave Me Now
…in A Lot Like Love

I had a great time watching Oliver and Emily evolve throughout the show. Their impromptu mini road trip is spontaneously romantic… and the song came at the right time with very apt lyrics indeed, for this couple took long enough — chasing and waiting on each other before they finally got together.

#2 Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant warbling Way Back Into Love
…in Music and Lyrics

Drew and Hugh are almost veterans at the romantic comedy genre, and of course putting them together is a sure-win formula. Who knew they sounded so good together?

#3 Cameron Diaz and Ethan Hawke singing Elton John’s Bennie and The Jets
…in A Life Less Ordinary

This movie is simply ridiculous and borders very much on insanity, but nevertheless it is a lovely treat to watch Cameron and Ethan together. Their drunken duet is hilarious and makes you want to jump in, knock back a few tequila shots and join them in their shenanigans.
