The fun part is seeing it all play out, thanks to a standout cast and first-time director Steve Kloves' skill in handling them.

What I really enjoyed about The Fabulous Baker Boys is the way it balances between the three key characters, as well as the outside world that they're up against.

Writer/director Steve Kloves (this was his first film) keeps his characters grounded as people...

Kloves' directorial debut features three superlative performances by Jeff and Beau Bridges (as bickering siblings) and particularly Michelle Pfeiffer, who's at her sexiest with a show-stopping number atop a piano in red dress!

Much of the credit must go to the actors, with the Bridges brothers making a superb double act.

Fantastica Daily

A completely engaging, thoroughly entertaining romantic comedy structured entirely on the strength of its main characters. One of the ten-best of 1989.

It's a film specializing in smoky, down-at-the-heels glamour, and in the kind of smart, slangy dialogue that sounds right without necessarily having much to say.

There have been only three truly breathtaking torch singers in movie history: Rita Hayworth, Jessica Rabbit, and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Simmering performances from the three lead characters that hit all the right buttons in this portrait of sibling rivalry.

f the film is watchable, it is mostly for the attraction of the actors. The story itself is as slow and languorous as one of Ms. Pfeiffer's songs.

A thoroughly enjoyable entertainment that should play just about everybody's strings right. Kloves proves to be quite a plucker.

This is one of the movies they will use as a document, years from now, when they begin to trace the steps by which Pfeiffer became a great star.
