Penelope [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

( 3 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Penelope is a romantic comedy in the Cyrano de Bergerac mode, except that the main character is a woman with a nose like a pig's snout. Composer Joby Talbot (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) has come up with a playful score reminiscent of the sort of thing Danny Elfman commonly does for Tim Burton movies. On the soundtrack album, that music is interspersed with a collection of attractive pop songs, notably one by Stars and a U2-style rock track by the Secret 6.

    Some Songs Missing...

    This soundtrack is pretty good, including the instrumental songs as well as some of the songs from the movie. There seemed to be some of the songs missing though, such as "Cha Cha Cha" by the Little Ones. "Hippopola" and "The Piano Song" are two of my favorite songs, but overall, this CD leaves a little bit to be desired. One would probably be better off looking up the songs on itunes. Still, the movie is amazing, and I would highly suggest getting that one...it has a great message, the beautiful James Mcavoy , and is suitable for both children and adults.
