    If scriptwriter Byrum hadn't tried to cram every possible theme into this film -- hoping, no doubt, they would all add up to greatness -- Duets would be an entertaining, wryly observed slice of Americana.

    Giamatti provides those small moments of triumph that Duets pretends to celebrate but instead stifles with its sense of superiority.
  6. A conceptual train wreck, with half an idea scattered like disaster debris all over the screen.
