Audience Reviews for Nadine

Jeff Bridges and Kim Basenger with real heavy accents ya'll, get inta all kinda trouble. It looks very dated, but it's just about watchable, because of the great actors.


Super Reviewer


This was one of the dumbest and one of the most boring films I have ever seen! It is pretty much a waste of time, film and money. I know I am young and dumb but what was a map of a new highway going to make Vernon money? Vernon was stupid, he was obsessed with that Bluebonnet bar and he was so much in debt it was pretty pointless to waste his money on that bar, and if he was so dang poor why was he always drinking beer? Nadine was a stupid character because all she did was scream the whole time. Floyd was dumb I am not surprised he got killed.

ZoŽ Peck

A small movie many probably haven't seen but thought this was pretty charming, and Bridges/Basinger had good chemistry.
