Written and directed by Steve Kloves, `The Fabulous Baker Boys' is a tale
of music and brotherly love set in Seattle. The Baker boys are Jack and
Frank (real life brothers Jeff and Beau Bridges), who eke out a living
playing piano together at various venues throughout the Emerald City, a
basic lounge act they've been doing for fifteen years. Frank is the
responsible one, because he has to be; he has a wife, kids and a home in the
suburbs. He manages their business, secures the bookings and is content to
stick with a formula that works. For him, it's not about the music, it's
about keeping food on the table for those who depend on him. Jack, on the
other hand, is unattached and could care less about the business end of the
partnership. As long as it affords him a modicum of security as well as
dignity, he is more than willing to just go along for the ride.
For Jack, though, underneath it all, it is about the music; it's about
jazz. On off nights he will steal away alone to some small club to play,
and deep down inside he knows that this is not only what he really wants,
but needs. And he knows he could be great, if only he'd let himself go.
The trouble is, he's been with Frank his whole life, and as long as the act
is working he just can't make the break. Unless something happens, his
dreams are destined to remain suppressed and unrealized.
It is only when one of their regular clubs balks at rescheduling them that
the brothers begin to realize that perhaps their act is getting a bit stale.
So they decide to try adding a singer to the act. After a memorable scene
in which a number of young hopefuls are auditioned, Suzie Diamond (Michelle
Pfeiffer) enters their life. She joins the act on a trial basis, and after
an amusing and somewhat tentative beginning, infuses it with new life,
though Frank continues to adamantly resist too much of a departure from
their original show. (`Does anyone really want to hear Feelings' again?'
she asks him at one point). Ultimately, however, Suzie becomes the impetus
for change that Jack has needed all along, and the stage is set for the
decisive moment, which comes when the dignity of the brothers is compromised
due to an incident on Frank's part of uncharacteristic carelessness. When
Jack tells Frank, `We've never been clowns before' you know exactly how
deep it has cut.
Kloves has fashioned an entertaining study of relationships, change, and
the effects of complacent loyalty and self-denial; and the importance of
following your own heart. When Jack sits down alone at the piano in that
smoke-filled club, we know that this is where he is meant to be. Filmed on
location in and around Seattle, with a terrific score by Dave Grusin,a
supporting cast that includes Jennifer Tilly (Monica) and Ellie Raab (Nina),
and a classic scene in which Suzie Diamond croons `Makin' Whoopee' atop a
piano, `The Fabulous Baker Boys' is an absolute gem you do not want to miss.
I rate this one 10/10.
