Junior [Original Score]

Junior [Original Score]

by James Newton Howard



Reuniting with director Ivan Reitman in the wake of their smash collaboration Dave, James Newton Howard runs smack into the law of diminishing returns with the frothy Junior -- employing the previous film's same basic instrumental approach (strings, brass, woodwinds, piano, and harp) as well as a similarly lightweight comedic sensibility, the score feels like little more than a retread. Howard's bubbly melodies can be charming, but there's no denying that the composer is merely going through the motions here -- the music simply lacks the verve that galvanized Dave, although the percolating arrangement of the ingenious "The Lab" comes close.
