Jeff Bridges delivered a rock-solid performance, including doing the actual singing, as the aging, chain-smoking and alcoholic country singer trying to redeem himself and begin writing songs again. I have never been a fan of country music but enjoy the few music performances in the film. A great, feel-good movie.

I think this film was just OK. An over used formula and it was a little too predictable for me.

There are plenty of movies out there about troubled yet talented stars. So, although there is nothing new to this story, Jeff Bridges and Bad Blake’s soulful music make “Crazy Heart” worth watching.

Jeff Bridges delivers a great, Oscar winning performance as Bad Blake, a down and out country singer making one last comeback. Highly recommended.
Anyone who enjoyed this movie should seek out a movie called Tender Mercies - a similar story for which Robert Duvall won an Oscar in the early 80's.

A very convincing performance by Bridges as the man who we watch unravelling as he travels across country to another dead end gig. Jack Daniels is his only best friend now,Bad Blake who once was "IT" is lost in a drunken bored haze...until he meets a younger journalist..then things get interesting!! Robert Duvall pops over to give a suble quiet performance as the friend trying to get Blake back in the saddle of the living..not into country much but this movie was really interesting nonetheless..
Cheers!

Lived up to my (high) expectations. Bridges his usual nuanced performance, Duvall and Farrell outstanding in supporting roles. Gyllenhaal perhaps the weakest main character but fault is in the writing not her acting.

What everyone said, except...the music's not so hot. So who cares if Bad Blake makes a comeback? There's plenty more where that came from, on any New Country station.

What a pleasant surprise. A friend had warned me that this movie was a bit of a downer, but I disagree. Jeff Bridges is phenomenal. His Bad Blake is smarmy, boozy, beer-gutted and so oily you're tempted to blot the TV screen with your hankie. How on earth do you grow to care about this guy by the end of the movie? And his love affair with Maggie Gyllenhal was eerily believable. After watching Richard Gere try to muster up some chemistry with Diane Lane (and failing), it was impressive how much heat Bad & Jean generated just from sittin' on a couch. Do yourself a favor: watch Robert Duvall's Tender Mercies, then a couple weeks later, watch this one. Hey, everyone wants redemption.
