The Sons Of Bridges

Beau and Jeff Bridges, the sons of Lloyd Bridges really developed their careers apart from each other. Neither piggybacked on the other's success and while their father's name might have opened a door or two, Beau and Jeff never piggybacked on him either.

When they did a joint project each had a well respected career. The Fabulous Baker Boys is about a pair of musician brothers who have a double piano act, something like Ohman&Arden from the Thirties or Jose and Ampara Iturbi, brother and sister in a more classical vein. But they're not anything as successful as the examples I mentioned. They eke out an existence in the clubs in Seattle trying to scratch a living at what they love.

Beau takes a lot of guff to keep them employed as he's married with children and Jeff puts up with nothing. To liven up the act they decide a sexy girl singer is what they need and after some dismal candidates they find Michelle Pheiffer. But Michelle dishes out her own brand of guff and she causes The Fabulous Baker Boys to reexamine themselves and their lives.

Pheiffer got a Best Actress nomination one of four categories of Oscar nominations the film received. She dominates the film when she's on and not through sheer beauty. It was a well deserved performance, I love the scenes when she cuts Jeff Bridges down to size. She isn't easy on Beau either.

Lots of the kind of music I like, vocal and instrumental, is found in The Fabulous Baker Boys. That's a guarantee right there I would enjoy the film.

It's only too bad that Beau and Jeff could not work their father into this one.

great brotherly relationships

Brothers Jack (Jeff Bridges) and Frank Baker (Beau Bridges) are pianists who play together in a lounge act. Frank is the responsible family man while Jack is a drunken loner who has only an old dog and a little neighborhood girl as friends. Work is drying up and Frank wants to audition for a singer. Susie Diamond (Michelle Pfeiffer) is a former escort. They soon become a highly sought after act. However she awaken many buried feelings in the sibling relationship.

Michelle Pfeiffer is terrific. Her singing isn't that bad and she oozes sexuality. The movie is also hilarious at times. It is the brotherly relationship of both the actors and the characters that is truly engaging. The plot is fairly straight forward. The relationships make this movie.

On the piano, folks!

Maybe "The Fabulous Baker Boys" was mostly one of those "small" movies, but it was certainly well-done. Jack (Jeff Bridges) and Frank Baker (Beau Bridges) are professional musicians whose lives consist of playing in clubs. Figuring that they need a back-up singer, they hire Susie Diamond (Michelle Pfeiffer). But her presence reveals the flaws in Jack's and Frank's lives, and specifically, their relationships with each other.

I don't know much about professional music to really comment further, but this was certainly an interesting flick. The Bridges brothers played the pianos on their own, and one can clearly see it. Definitely worth seeing.
