A good diversion for the weekend, a movie to kick back with, listen to some music and have a good time with...

The sincere charm of this romantic comedy triumphs over its plodding pace and narrow purview.

This is an enchanting and escapist summer movie... And it has something to say about the male-driven world of pop music.

A movie with so much love of music in its soul. I had the best time watching this.

Tracee Ellis Ross and a supremely entertaining story...she powerfully belts out six new songs while playing a beloved pop singer determined to stay cool.

May 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's a bummer. "The High Note" has a chance to tell an original story about the inner-workings of the music business. Instead, it's satisfied playing the greatest hits.
