Jeff Bridges (Jack Baker), Beau Bridges (Frank Baker), Michelle Pfeiffer (Suzie Diamond), Jennifer Tilly (Blanche 'Monica' Moran)
Two jazz pianist brothers decide to spruce up their failing, old-fashioned act and recruit former escort Suzie Diamond as their new silky-voiced lounge singer, whom both brothers end up falling for.
Despite an excellent performance from Michelle Pfeiffer, this is simply one of them films which is more arty than it is entertaining.
If you're a jazz aficionado or a die hard fan of Pfeiffer you may find a lot more enjoyment from it.
