Seattle Post-Intelligencer
The big downside of the film is that it always feels slightly contrived.
60
Every so often a movie comes along that's bad in such original and unexpected ways that it inspires an almost admiring fascination

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.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Duets is to movies what karaoke is to pop: a spirited attempt by non-pros.

San Francisco Examiner
Miserable as it crawls for two eternal hours toward being "life-affirming."
33
Portland Oregonian
To be fair, there are moments when the film seems better than, finally, it is.
30
This soft, formulaic comedy/drama has a far better cast than it deserves, and they work their hearts out trying to bring life to a cliched script.
30
Village Voice
A road movie, though there's a decided lack of forward motion.

L.A. Weekly
Why the devotion to such dull material?
25
New York Post
The talented cast doesn't stand much of a chance in this rambling, pointless narrative.
