The Fabulous Baker Boys

There are two brothers named Frank and Jack who are out of luck and looking for something to spice up their longue act when they hire her. She delivers with a vengeance and puts them on the road to success. Only to see it shortly lived. That in a nutshell sums up the plot of this movie. The summary is short and sweet. The movie is not so. The movie is long and boring. At seven minutes short of two hours this snoozer will surely give you a chance to get caught up on your sleep. This movie is best known for its cast. The two aforementioned brothers are real life brothers Jeff and Beau Bridges. The lady in question is the sultry Michelle Pfeiffer. Together they brought in box office dollars. This movie however was a dud. This movie works best when Michelle Pfeiffer is singing on stage. That does not happen that often. When she is on screen period this movie works. Unfortunately this movie is aptly titled and is about the two brothers. The two brothers are boring and lifeless they bring nothing to the screen and make me wish I stayed in bed and not watched this movie. If you want boredom and lifelessness then see this movie. If you want to be kept on the edge of your sea or even slightly entertained then see something else. This movie is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Grade F

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
