A cliched attempt at a feel-good drama, Broken Bridges is schmaltzy, predictable, and stiffly acted. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Broken Bridges

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (20)

  • Country star Toby Keith makes his acting debut in this rickety heartland drama, which was produced by Country Music Television and panders shamelessly to the traditional-values crowd.

    July 28, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Director Goldmann, who cut his teeth directing videos for Shania Twain and Faith Hill, never misses a chance to punch-up an emotional scene with a contrived, heart-melting music performance by one or more of his stars.

    September 23, 2006 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Broken Bridges is wrapped tight in the cloak of good intentions, soft-pedaling tired tripe about redemption, reconciliation, and finding solace in the bottle.

    September 22, 2006 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • It's obviously intended as a star vehicle, but Broken Bridges turns out to be a rattletrap jalopy for country music performer Toby Keith.

    September 22, 2006
  • A limp, timeworn tale of a drunken has-been country star (Keith) and a TV reporter he had and lost (Kelly Preston) who meet again after returning home because of a tragedy.

  • When you can get just as good on the Hallmark network, why drive all the way to a theater?

    We've all seen these stories before - drunk performer turns his life around, reunites with his estranged girlfriend and daughter and everyone lives happily everafter.
