Scott Speedman and Maria Bello in “Duets”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “DUETS, which stars Gwyneth Paltrow and is directed by her father, Bruce Paltrow, dives headfirst into the bizarre musical world of karaoke. When six amateur singers gather for the Grand Prize Karaoke Contest in Omaha, Nebraska, each displays his/her own unique and special talents, which are funny and endearing. Paltrow sings a duet with Huey Lewis at one point, and she also performs Paula Abdul’s ‘Forever Your Girl’.”

…sexually related movement, nudity and sounds…
…a long-winded metaphor for the American Dream…
—Kevin Maynard, Mr. Showbiz
…the clumsy comedy and mawkishness of the picture make it little more enjoyable than actually spending an evening in a bar listening to amateurs…
—Frank Swietek, One Guy’s Opinion
