  • Even when you know what's coming, Crazy Heart haunts you like a classic country song. It's a mesmerizer. So is Bad Blake. This dude also abides. show more

  • Perhaps the idea of watching Jeff Bridges as a drunken, broken-down, down-on-his luck country music singer in Crazy Heart doesn't automatically sound appealing. But think this: "The Wrestler." With good songs. show more

  • Crazy Heart, based on a 1987 novel by Thomas Cobb, also has great music. Even if you're not a country music fan, the songs, by T Bone Burnett and the late Stephen Bruton, are infectious. show more

    Write your review here... I cant be the first to think this, but I would swear that the Bowling ally, the first place he played in the movie, was the same bowling ally in "The Big Lewboski" did anyone else notice this, or am I wrong? I really liked the movie. Watched it 2 times. I'm looking forward to "True grit". And rumor is fast spreading for those "Dude" fans, that there's a Big Lewboski II in the works true or not?

    AWESOME MOVIE! I was so impressed with both Brydges and Farrell's singing talent. How does a young man from Dublin sound like a country boy from the USA? AMAZING! Brydges played the part of Bad PERFECTLY! His Daddy would be proud!
