Only one star for this score?

In my opinion, the score is so simplistic and electronic because the movie didn't need anything more than that - a slightly funky, americana & minimalist score. I got the R2 DVD recently (with the isolated score) and it works perfectly in the movie, giving a 100% dialogue driven movie a good atmosphere. There's also several good string & piano cues you seem to have missed.

Maybe I'm a big Newman fan, but this score does its job and it a solid 4 star effort for me. You also mention the length of the CD? Well watch the movie - it's got less music than the CD does so I think we got a pretty damn good deal here.

Yup, I absolutely agree with you. It's music for a movie, you can't just make some music as you like. It's ridiculuous to expect something like "Little Women" and "The Horse Whispeper" style in Erin Brokovich. Though I can't enjoy this movie score, it fits the movie perfectly.
