Trivia

The Tascam 4-track "Portastudio" cassette deck seen in this film was a revolutionary device, allowing a musician to record three tracks, mix them to the fourth track and then add more tracks. It supported external guitar-style effects processors, had a variable speed control for tuning and special effects, and you could even flip the tape for reverse recording. Originally introduced in 1979, it later evolved in to the current digital version. This would have been an ideal tool for the songwriter in this movie, as it was heavily used for demos. It could also be used for creating fully-produced elaborate arrangements as advanced as the Beatle's four-track system in their day. In fact, Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska album was actually created on one. See more »

Goofs

The mixing equipment in the late husband's shed, while passable for a band, was far more elaborate than would have been necessary for the music heard in the film, as (except for the "lost" song, which had a touch of piano) it was just solo acoustic guitar and solo voice. See more »

A movie that I did like but was almost a little too cookie cutter like to be considered original.
11 March 2016 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"You're the one obsessed with death. My Hunter was obsessed with life." Hannah (Hall) is trying to cope with the death of her husband, and popular singer. She spends her life living in the past and trying everything to keep his memory alive. When Andrew (Sudeikis) shows up wanting to write a book about him he is met with resistance from Hannah. Little by little the more they talk they more they realize they both have something that will help the other one. This is a very good movie that is worth watching, but it also a tad bit generic and cookie cutter like. Most romantic comedies are though so going in I expected that. Sudeikis is great and funny as always, even though this is more serious than we are used to from him. In terms of romantic movies this is one that men will like, maybe more than women. Overall, a movie that I did like but was almost a little too cookie cutter like to be considered original. I give this a B-.
