A good movie

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for Jeff Bridges and Michelle Pfeiffer, I was quite eager to check it out. Honestly, it wasn’t really original and fairly predictable but both actors were so charismatic, it thought it was still quite enjoyable. Another interesting aspect of this flick was to have the Bridges playing siblings and, even though I was... read more

My Top 80 Favorite Romantic Comedies (80 movies items)

"Two brothers (played by two actual brothers who are pretty much well known as being brothers) form a musical duo act that has pretty much run its course. So, they take the next obvious step required to put their careeer back on track. What is the ingredient that makes the Baker Boys' piano lounge act so fabulous? It's the beautiful and slightly eccentric female singer between the two of 'em. Which is what makes this sandwich of a film two white breds with some delectable ham in between."

BradWesley123’s Movie Journal- April 2021 (35 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 54min. First Viewing The Fabulous Baker Boys is about as smooth a film as you'll find. It doesn't do much, if anything, that rocks the boat narratively, but it doesn't need to. Writer/director Steve Kloves gives characters room to breathe, letting the story build in a natural way that feels lived-in and genuine. A well-structured screenplay, certainly, but exceptional filmmaking, too. Everything flows with such nuance and precision that it's, frankly, stunning that this comes from a"

"The brothers are played by brothers, which helps a lot; but ultimately neither one is all that likable. Pfeiffer certainly is but the singing sings seem aren't very strong whereas the squabbles are the main focus and well, only fairly interesting... kind of like this review."

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2010 (50 movies items)

"THE CLASSICS YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN BY NOW Michelle Pfeiffer As Susie Diamond, a hard-boiled call girl turned lounge singer, Pfeiffer nabbed every major critics award (eventually losing the 1989 Best Actress Oscar to Jessica Tandy) and, thanks to a slinky, Steinway-humping rendition of “Makin’ Whoopee”, entered the pop culture pantheon of bombshells in red dresses. But as Pfeiffer’s leading-lady turns grow infrequent in the 21st century, Baker Boys seems especially precious in retrospect: "
