Pfeiffer warbled ”Makin’ Whoopee” on a piano and writhed into the hearts of men everywhere, but this superb debut from Steve Kloves — the screenwriter behind Wonder Boys and the Harry Potter series — has much more going for it than her sultry, Oscar-nominated turn. The Fabulous Baker Boys is the tale of a pair of has-been lounge-lizard siblings (the brothers Bridges, both excellent) taking on a feisty chanteuse is the kind of bluesy romantic drama we rarely see anymore; nearly every scene is a jazz-tinged, virtuoso actors’ duet. EXTRAS None.
