The original soundtrack to Bruce Paltrow's karaoke drama Duets follows up on the film's premise, collecting the actors' performances of pop favorites. Huey Lewis' "Feelin' Alright," Maria Bello's "I Can't Make You Love Me," and John Pinette's "Copacabana" may not equal the original versions, but they're still entertaining enough in the album's context. Similarly, Gwyneth Paltrow's duets with Babyface ("Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)") and Lewis ("Cruisin'") are as interesting for their sheer novelty as for the discovery that Paltrow has a surprisingly good singing voice. However, Paul Giamatti's sweetly awkward "Hello, It's Me" and Paltrow's guileless reading of "Bette Davis Eyes" go one step farther, imbuing their performances with the desperation and vulnerability that drives their characters. As with the film, Duets is a personal and occasionally captivating – if not always successful – soundtrack.
