Director Garry Marshall's movie about two mentally challenged folks navigating the waters of love features a slapdash collection that's simply all over the place. The movie's star, Juliette Lewis, brings home a version of Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen's "Come Rain or Come Shine." It ain't Billie Holiday, but you were expecting what? The Lemonheads do the same to Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson" (which actually scored them a minor alternative hit). The Soup Dragons fare far better with their cover of the Rolling Stones' "I'm Free" (which was also a hit several years ago). Diane Warren makes her obligatory songwriting showcase with "Loving You Is All I Know," which is delivered with typical vibrato by Chrissie Hynde. Blues shouter Joan Osborne is draped in strings for "At Last." Add in alt-rockers Fastball and neo-trad country gal Alison Krauss, and you've got a sloppy, oddball stew. --Rob O'Connor

You can enjoy this cd even if you have never seen the movie. There are 11 really great jazz-type songs - including a version of "Come Rain Or Come Shine" sung by Juliette Lewis!

"I love the song "When You Say Nothing At All!" It is a very romantic song and fits the movie great. I also like Danny & Carla's Theme cuz it best describes their times together. I suggest getting this CD to many people."

"Great soundtrack! "The Animal Song" and "I'm Free" are fun; "Loving You is All I Need" and "When You Say Nothing at All" are so sweet and "At Last" is just beautiful! The whole album is wonderful, but these are the ones that stick out for me. I find myself setting the repeat option and listening to the album over and over again. These are great songs to sing along with and my husband and I dance to "When You Say Nothing at All" - we love that song! A bonus on this album is that Juliette Lewis sings "Come Rain or Come Shine." She does well, though she need not quit acting! Overall, a great soundtrack that brings back the feeling of the movie."
