The Fabulous Baker Boy's is an excellent movie. I was at the video store and saw nothing that peaked my interest, so I just grabbed it and went home. After watching it I realized what a phenomenal movie it was. Great... Full review

This is a movie that tingles all your senses and makes you feel like if you had a few drinks and got buzzed a little. Without Michelle Pfeiffer's (not to mention that famous on the piano)performance and the music of Dave... Full review

This movie is one of my favourites, probably because I'm a true Jeff Bridges-fan. I think most people are familiar with the story. It's about 2 brothers playing piano in hotel lounges and bars etc. Beside the Bridges-brothers, Michelle Pfeiffer... Full review
After seeing the rating for this movie, I'm convinced about one thing: the average viewer doesn't want good movies, all they are interested in is some cheap entertainment with big explosions, a lot of violence and shooting and if possible... Full review

I've just seen this movie yesterday and I must say I was pretty amazed because I didn't expect a lot from a movie with such a conformist story. But it's been a while since I haven't felt that good after watching... Full review

TFBB is such a terrific movie, you feel like a child in a toy store wanting to tell it all. Everything in this story falls into place, the pace is great, the acting is brilliant and yet it's in the... Full review
There is no way I could possibly give Baker Boys anything less then a 10, even though as far as personal enjoyment goes, I had some problems with it. Yet, without a doubt the fact remains that this movie, on... Full review
Enjoyable story, thinly plotted but very well made.

Jeff and Beau Bridges - brothers in real life - are here united to play brothers on the screen. It's not the first time real-life brothers have played fictitious brothers in a movie (in fact, in The Long Riders several... Full review

Film Threat, Hollywood's Indie V
It's a good song, and I like the scene....The commentary hasn't been carried over (unfortunately because of different companies in charge of each release), the production notes aren't there and most disappointing is the shameful lack of a commentary by Steve Kloves....Nevertheless, it's still worth seeing "The Fabulous Baker Boys," no matter which DVD you watch it on..... ...

Both Bridges are excellent; it might be the pinnacle of Beau Bridges' filmic career. His dialogue is occasionally too pat for its own good, but the characters are well-drawn and reasonably complicated. ... Full Review

They select auditioner Susie Diamond (Michelle Pfeiffer), who in addition to being a gifted songstress is drop-dead gorgeous. Musical prodigies both, the Bakers have long been teamed as a twin-piano act, with the less talented Frank (Beau Bridges) coasting on the skills of his brilliant younger brother Jack (Jeff Bridges). ...

"The Fabulous Baker Boys" is a grand piano movie, all sophisticated rhythms, visual glissandi and three-part harmony. The Fabulous Baker Boys" is like a beloved movie from the glory days of Hollywood. ... Full Review

Qwipster's Movie Reviews
It's an efficiently made film made by consummate professionals, and for a night of quality sights, sounds, and good performances, the price of the rental should be well worth it. Much of this is due to the perfect chemistry of the Bridges Brothers, who actually learned the hand movements for the songs they were to play just for the movie, and the nicely delivered songs from Pfeiffer, who does all of her own singing here. ...
