The Fabulous Baker Boys: review

he titular Baker boys are frosty Jack and fussy Frank (real-life siblings Jeff Bridges and Beau Bridges), a pair of lounge-act pianists who elect to spice up their show (and their sagging finances) by adding a singer to the mix. They settle on Susie Diamond (Pfeiffer), tough-talking, street-smart, and always ready with a quip (or a sharp counter to a quip). All three stars are superb, with the siblings nailing the most poignant scene by serving up The Sherman Brothers' "You're Sixteen." But it's Pfeiffer's smart and sexy performance that quickly became a thing of legend, with her sultry rendition of "Makin' Whoopie" (in a red dress, no less) earning almost as much ink as any other movie scene from 1989. Besides Pfeiffer's bid, The Fabulous Baker Boys earned three other Oscar nominations, including Best Cinematography for the incredible Michael Ballhaus (The Last Temptation of Christ, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Quiz Show).
