Crazy Heart – 2.5 stars

Crazy Heart.  A paint-by-numbers “ole’ broke down country singer gets its together by the love of a good woman” movie.  Tender Mercies is a better picture by leaps and bounds, and while Jeff Bridges is very good, he’s not exactly breaking a sweat.  Some of T. Bone Burnett’s numbers are very catchy and authentic,  though the one that was nominated for best song is pedestrian.
