Reviews
Mine: Interesting look at the world of small time music. Some very well done stuff, but it does not quite seem enough.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Two brothers' fifteen-year partnership as a twin-piano nightclub lounge act is shaken by the addition of a feisty (and sexy) singer, who sparks changes in their act--and their relationship. Writer Kloves' directing debut is stylish and self-assured, with some great scenes and set-pieces, but it skimps on story--and never really fleshes out Jeff Bridges' sullen character. The real-life Bridges brothers are perfectly cast, Pfeiffer is ideal. Her steamy rendition of ``Makin' Whoopee'' atop piano considered a minor classic.
