In this week’s edition of Throwback Thursday, we look to a classic film featuring Late Night movie’s Mindy Kaling, No Strings Attached (2011)! Amazon Studio’s Late Night film expands to more theaters this weekend, so here’s your Mindy Kaling double feature opportunity! Lakeshore Records released both the No Strings Attached score by John Debney and the various artists soundtrack back in 2011.
Directed by Ivan Reitman, the film received six award nominations and won two awards including the Top Box Office Films Award for John Debney at the 2012 ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards! Listen to the score and film music below.
However, if you’re expecting a score that plays every dialogue-driven joke and heartstring here like a TV band drummer enthusiastically hitting his cymbal, composer Lesley Barber defies expectations with a score as smartly energetic, and vibrantly attuned to its material as “Late Night’s” winning sisterhood act. – Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine

The film, written and co-starring Mindy Kaling, features score by award-winning composer Lesley Barber (Manchester By The Sea, You Can Count On Me), released on Lakeshore Records also on June 7. Listen to the soundtrack below!
