Bad Blake (Jeff Bridges) is a broken-down, hard-living country music singer who's had way too many marriages, far too many years on the road and one too many drinks way too many times. And yet, Bad can't help but reach for salvation with the help of Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a journalist who discovers the real man behind the musician. As he struggles down the road of redemption, Bad learns the hard way just how tough life can be on one man's crazy heart.

  • 4 stars "Well-acted movie. Jeff's love interest way too young. Movie was too-too long."
  • 5 stars "Great movie! Nice subtle story about an aging alcoholic musician trying to get back on the right track. I'd buy the DVD for sure if they bothered to put any decent features. Hopefully a special edition comes out later. Anyway, 5 stars, 2 thumbs up!"
  • 5 stars "Jeff Bridge's superb acting is worth the price of admission alone. He totally lays it all on the line. No doubt about Oscar worthiness here.Anyone who pans this movie is very likely an adolescent. Some story lines require a mature audience and this is one of those for sure. Signed................GWH."
