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

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

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.

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

The Fabulous Baker Boys is like a beloved movie from the glory days of Hollywood. It transports you. It's an American rhapsody.

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.
