Dreary and unconvincing soap opera featuring Michelle Pfeiffer on a piano being "sexy". Apparently.

Despite the 80's style cinematography and music, the heartbreaking story of two dueling brothers feels modern in its realism and melancholy. Exceptionally strong performances by the Bridges brothers.

Really unlikable characters, although Pfeifer does have a few showstopping songs.

Star-Ruhm

Michelle Pfeiffer im roten Kleid auf einem Flügel singt "Makin Whopee" - das ist ein Grund, sich The Fabulous Baker Boys anzusehen! Der Film folgt dem alten Rezept zweier Partner, deren Beziehung durch eine Frau bedroht wird, in die sich einer der Beiden verliebt. Selten aber habe ich diese Formel in einem so tollen und intensiven Film erlebt! Womöglich schwingt da etwas Autobiographisches mit? Eine alte Wunde, die nie verarbeitet wurde? Jeff und Beau Bridges spielen zwei Brüder, die als Piano Cocktail Duo in Hotels auftreten. Sie sind die Baker Boys und agieren in einer Schattenwelt des Showbusiness. Nacht für Nacht arbeiten sie in prätentiösen Clubs auf und führen ihr immer gleiches Programm vor, das sie bestimmt schon im Schlaf können. Das Publikum hört nur halb hin, ist mit ...
