Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 11/02/1989
"...Pfeiffer is a knockout....The Bridges brothers are a winning pair..."
New York Times - 10/13/1989
"...[A] slow, teasing, rapturously moody romance....THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS, like its stars, has style and sultriness to spare..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/16/1996
"...Pfeiffer Unbound. You don't want to take your eyes off her..." -- Rating: A-
Los Angeles Times - 10/13/1989
"...A clear-eyed look at an unpromising end of show biz.....As salty and sexy and unhousebroken a movie as you could hope to find.....Michelle Pfeiffer is delectable..."
Total Film - 04/01/2004
"Steve Kloves' elegant three-hander is an intimate riff on brotherly love/hate, spruced up by the natural chemistry between the Bridges."
Ultimate DVD - 03/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he sparkling performances ensure this remains engrossing entertainment."
Wall Street Journal - 12/17/2010
"Never has Jeff Bridges been a stronger presence, or Beau Bridges a more touching one, than in Steve Kloves's masterful debut as a writer-director."

Product Description:

Brothers Jack and Frank Baker are cocktail lounge piano players whose career has hit a sour note. They need a little charm and sex appeal to liven up their act - what they get is Susie Diamond, a beautiful, but hard-talking, chain-smoking singer. Academy Award Nominations: 3, including Best Actress--Michelle Pfeiffer, Best Original Score.

Plot Synopsis:

Two piano-playing brothers, one a cynic with serious artistic leanings, and the other a perpetually optimistic, but workmanlike player, audition a number of vocalists in order to spice up their stale lounge act. When they find a beautiful and talented young singer, their career starts to pick up again. But jealousies, both romantic and professional, begin to appear and threaten their newfound success.
