Remember when Michael Keaton was a big deal? He went from TV actor to comedy movie star in a flash and then – dun-dun-dun – he started getting serious. Remember when he was Batman? Anyway, right before Batman, he did a movie called “Clean and Sober” (1988). The plot basically took his typical comedy character, turned him into an A-hole with a coke habit, and then had him sort it all out. It’s a romantic comedy with drugs substituted for comedy and minus the “happily ever after.” Meh. Still, co-stars Kathy Baker and Morgan Freeman are enjoyable with their 1980s weird hair.
