Music And Lyrics: A romantic comedy following Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant) a washed-up 80s pop star whos been reduced to working the nostalgia circuit at county fairs and amusement parks. The charismatic and talented musician gets a chance at a comeback when reigning diva Cora Corman invites him to write and record a duet with her... ; ; Lucky You: Billie Offer (Barrymore) is a young singer from Bakersfield with more heart then talent. Huck Cheever (Bana) is a poker player whose emotions at the table often undermine his exceptional skill especially when he is heads up with his father poker legend L. C. Cheever (Duvall). The one aptitude Billie and Huck seem to share is a knack for reading people - the difference is what they do with that gift. While Huck's instincts enable him to take advantage of his opponents at the poker table and expertly avoid both emotional connections and long-term commitments in his personal life Billie uses her intuition to see the emotional truth of those around her and sympathize with their pain. When these two meet the real game begins. If Huck is going to win Billie's heart her must lean to play cards the way he has been living life and live life the way he has been playing cards. ; ; Going the Distance: Erin (Drew Barrymore) and Garrett (Justin Long) strike sparks for a summer fling in New York City but neither expects it to last once Erin heads home to San Francisco and Garrett remains behind for his Big Apple job. But after six increasingly romantic weeks neither is sure they want it to end. So despite the opposing coasts naysaying friends and family and a few unexpected temptations the couple just might have found something like love. And helped by a lot of texting sexting and late-night phone calls they might actually go the distance.
