For the Love of Mike

Six actors make beautiful music together in Duets.

A number of minor players make an impression. Marian Seldes has a small role as Billy's disappointed third-grade teacher; she puts on an Irish accent and overplays shamelessly. Angie Dickinson plays it cooler in her one scene as Liv's grandmother, nicely pulling off her big ironic line about putting down roots in Las Vegas. Several "real" karaoke-ists appear near the end, as does the rotund stand-up comedian John Pinette, who sings a rousing "Copacabana."Duets is no big deal, but moments like this make it go down smoothly, and Giamatti and Braugher give it a human core.
