Editorial Reviews

Nate (Alec Newman) is a successful financial manager by day and a closet musician by night. One evening he hears a beautiful voice outside his apartment window accompanying his piano playing. The mysterious voice turns out to be the coat check girl, Chloe (Amy Adams), from the local jazz club. Chloe strikes a deal with Nate to perform with her at the club. Their chemistry is undeniable and with every song they play, the closer they become.

Format: DVD
A quick summary would be to watch this for Amy Adams, but since she does not get a speaking line until 16 minutes in (her first actual scene flashes by with no lines), and then her singing sounds dubbed (yet still beautiful) one could be wary of this title. It played well in the store if I left it on a chapter repeat where she sings, but I lost every single potential rental when anyone else was "acting" or some other scene was taking place.

The story follows some corporate/financial guy as he grinds through work in the day and plays the piano/sings by night. He happens to come across a beautiful lady who can sing and their paths become entangled - tangled in horrible writing, atrocious supporting acting, bad sets, poor sound, dimly lit interiors, etc. Writing issues: One scene shows our horribly single main guy in a bar getting hit on by Moon Bloodgood (who looked phenomenal as always - a very short role) but he turns her down for no reason - they could not even write one (what guy would ever turn her down??). Any scene that involves his workplace had customers laughing as they watched it - it looked like a stage play with flubbed lines and bad re-takes. Another scene with Amy singing has her hiding in the street shadows and when you can briefly see her the words do not match, and the list goes on.

The sound is average to poor, the picture quality is fine to average - but fake when the moon pictures flash by. The story was either trying to fit in as a musical/romance or a bad time at work film, neither worked on their own, but some of her singing was outstanding. No special features so 2 stars for her singing and zero for everything else.

If you like Amy Adams, you'll probably like this movie. If you like Jazz, particularly some of the standards, you'll probably quite enjoy this movie.

This movie was made in 2006, yet not released till now. In the meantime, lead actress Amy Adams has rightly become a huge star, getting Academy Award nominations for Junebug and Doubt, and having a huge hit with Enchanted (Full Screen Edition). I just saw Leap Year which is worth a look.

Moonlight Serenade has flaws, it's a B movie with an A actress. The music mostly, by Jazz virtuoso, Alex deFrancesco is absolutely excellent, and excellently performed by Amy Adams, who has a recording artist quality voice. Her main costar, Alec Watson resembles a young Sinatra in appearance. He has looks and charisma. I think he is a promising actor.

What I found lacking in the movie was not the acting, but the underdeveloped storyline, and the basic unbelievability of the characters behavior. Are we supposed to believe that a financial wizard would totally rethink his successful business strategy of selling short, and risk his career because he met a coatcheck girl, and aspiring singer. Are we supposed to believe that a narcissistic druggie boyfriend would suddenly act in his girlfriend's best interest. Are we supposed to believe that she, Chloe, would struggle to meet the piano player big Frank for an audition at a different club when they both already work in the same club. Why not just audition before the club opens?

Harriet Sansom Harris really shines in this movie. Her supporting role helps to define the leading man's motivation for his behavior. Her role also quietly reinforces the theme that everyone wants affection, including average looking men and women. Harris gives an excellent performance in every scene including the one in which she sings. After seeing her in this movie I am looking for other DVDs in which she acts. While some reviewers pan the movie for its apparent low budget (revealed in simple scenes and wardrobe) I believe the simplicity helps focus the audience more on the characters. The simplicity adds a quality of realism as everyday life is simple both in the offices where we work and the bars we visit. Amy Adams's character could not afford elegant clothing anyway so simple was the way to go. This is a simple movie with solidly realistic performances by actors and musicians. The kind hearts are demonstrated by those interacting with the leading man. His focus is on flaws and potential failures so he does not see the kindness of those around him. Thanks to the director, the audience may see the kindness- but only if they choose as it is realistically understated. The music is high quality and is reason alone to see the movie. The musical director and the musicians deserve a lot of credit for their efforts. Amy Adam's performance as Chloe is intentionally not glamorous or perky. It is realistic and thus well done. Her innate charm and beauty is downplayed which means the viewer gets to see quality acting. Thus, if you are an Amy Adams fan you should own this DVD as it is a great example of her acting ability. Harriet Sansom Harris fans also should own this DVD. This is a romance movie so it has a happy ending.
