  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. 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.
  4. A leaden piece of whimsy that looks for profound life lessons among a group of karaoke bar aficionados.

    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.
