Its plot pure cloying Hollywood formula: NYC career woman Kate Hudson finds parenthood thrust upon her when her sister is suddenly killed; call it Suddenly Stepmother. It's effective TV-scale sitcom/melodrama, with a pop song-score to match. Mixing predictable Top 40/new wave chestnuts (Bowie's "Fashion," S&G's "At the Zoo," "Whip It" by Devo) with a slate of young modern rock and pop label investments that includes Five For Fighting, Kristin Osborn of Shedaisy, Haylie Duff and Fefe Dobson, the collection effectively evokes the film's central conflicts, but breaks little new ground. Liz Phair makes the closest thing to a star turn on the slinky pop-rock cruncher "Extraordinary," while the contributions of John Hiatt and Joan Osborne anchor the bubbly collection with enough maturity and emotional gravitas to keep it from blowing away in a strong breeze. --Jerry McCulley

It lacks a few more big, outstanding songs but they're all good. I guess the best tracks were, for me, "Extraordinary" by Liz Phair, "Sweetest Pain" by Haylie Duff, "Thinking Over" by Dana Glover and of course, "Whip It" by Devo, which is such an integral part of the movie. And oh yeah, Simon and Garfunkel's "At The Zoo" is one of those songs you actually enjoy getting stuck in your head all day.
A perfect cd to listen to in your car, it'll make your trips less hectic, get you singing along and continue smiling long after you've reached your destinations. Wherever you choose to listen to it, I have to tell you, it's just really good. :)
