  1. The big downside of the film is that it always feels slightly contrived.
  2. 63
    Has little islands of humor and even perfection, floating in a sea of missed marks and murky intentions.
  3. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy

    Lack of much substance or dramatic payoff makes the whole significantly less than sum of its parts.
  4. 50
    The joys of singing give the movie a hook, but when Duets aims for lyricism, it's got a tin ear.
  5. Reviewed by: Steve Daly

    A leaden piece of whimsy that looks for profound life lessons among a group of karaoke bar aficionados.
  6. 38
    Giamatti provides those small moments of triumph that Duets pretends to celebrate but instead stifles with its sense of superiority.
  7. A conceptual train wreck, with half an idea scattered like disaster debris all over the screen.
