AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: A cliched attempt at a feel-good drama, Broken Bridges is schmaltzy, predictable, and stiffly acted.

Movie Info

When a fading country music superstar Bo Price (Toby Keith) returns to his hometown for the funeral of his younger brother, a reunion with his high-school sweetheart drags the pain of the past into the present day and soon promises to change his life forever. Bo and Angela (Kelly Preston) have both lost the ones they love in a tragic accident, and now the time has come to say goodbye. For every end there is a new beginning though, and when Bo reunites with Angela and meets the daughter he has never known, the life-changing encounter stirs feelings that Bo had long-since buried after achieving stratospheric success.

Critic Reviews for Broken Bridges

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

Country star Toby Keith makes his acting debut in this rickety heartland drama, which was produced by Country Music Television and panders shamelessly to the traditional-values crowd.

July 28, 2009 | Full Review…

Director Goldmann, who cut his teeth directing videos for Shania Twain and Faith Hill, never misses a chance to punch-up an emotional scene with a contrived, heart-melting music performance by one or more of his stars.

September 23, 2006 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's obviously intended as a star vehicle, but Broken Bridges turns out to be a rattletrap jalopy for country music performer Toby Keith.

Top Critic

Broken Bridges is wrapped tight in the cloak of good intentions, soft-pedaling tired tripe about redemption, reconciliation, and finding solace in the bottle.

September 22, 2006 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

A limp, timeworn tale of a drunken has-been country star (Keith) and a TV reporter he had and lost (Kelly Preston) who meet again after returning home because of a tragedy.

When you can get just as good on the Hallmark network, why drive all the way to a theater?
