WATCH AND LEARN
KARAOKE SCENES ON THE BIG SCREEN ARE SOMETIMES SILLY, SOMETIMES POIGNANT, OFTEN CRINGEWORTHY, AND USUALLY MEMORABLE. HERE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVORITES.


Most Lovable Tone-Deaf Songstress
Cameron Diaz as a bride-to-be in My Best Friend’s Wedding

Best Performance by an American in Hong Kong, the Karaoke Mecca
Chris Tucker’s in Rush Hour 2, in which he played a loudmouthed detective

Most Meaningful Song Exchange
Between the unlikely friends played by Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation

Most Dedicated to Hitting the High Notes
The entire cast (they played karaoke pros) of Duets
