The High Note is a a really fun movie about music, love, and friendship. It is the perfect escape from the current world and a great movie night film.

"The High Note" is a lighthearted bit of froth that bears little resemblance to reality.

The irony of this movie being called The High Note is that there aren't too many highlights for this film, when it comes to authenticity, laugh-out-loud humor or outstanding original songs.

If t's a mostly agreeable rom-com you're after, one underpinned by a fresh soundtrack celebrating many of the greats in American music then The High Note might just be for you.

The High Note sings a charming tune that, while familiar, will satisfy on a breezy summer night.

A small movie with modest goals, boosted by strong performances and an attention to detail.

The High Note is either a light-hearted and likeable fantasy of the LA music industry, or a white-washed, clueless and resolutely tone-deaf take on the same. Over to you.

The High Note never reaches any great cinematic heights, but the music is fine and the ride pleasant enough.

During quarantine you could do worse than streaming this movie, and that's mostly thanks to Tracy Ross, who brings her usual warmth and likability to the proceedings.

Even the supposed surprise twist is both overly telegraphed and so easy to figure out it removes any depth from the actual dramatic reveal.

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

The High Note was a satisfying dramedy that will be greatly appreciated by music lovers above all else. If you're a fan of Tracee Ellis Ross or just the inner workings of the music industry, then this film will be right up your alley.

Dakota Johnson, who was so good in The Peanut Butter Falcon, is an anchor here-and not in a good way. There's nothing memorable about her performance.

I think the movie says a lot about where the industry is and where young people searching for a break are in these times...

One of the biggest problems with The High Note is that, believe it or not, Davis (Ross) is not the lead character of the story .

Ross does a great job both acting and singing the High Note...workmanlike, the cheesy filler that some types of people need right now...a basic comedy with terrific music.

The High Note ends up hitting a nearly consistent low note, which ultimately comes down to a mostly lifeless formulaic structure.

The performances do a good job... with Johnson and Harrison making their way charmingly through tests of their professional / personal relationship. [Full review in Spanish]

The High Note satisfies that need for something pretty well done though redundant.

The High Note is worth watching, and can pass as middling, cotton-candy fluff. It just leaves an awful lot on the table.
