Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Garry Marshall's 1988 drama about a 30-year friendship between two women, one wealthy (Barbara Hershey) and the other (Bette Midler) seeking her fortune in show business, is well written (based on the novel by Iris Rainer Dart) and nicely textured in its contrast between the characters' separate destinies. When Hershey becomes ill with cancer, the film takes a predictably sentimental course, yet Marshall brings out the best in both actresses and catches some very fine drama. Beaches is a little too long, perhaps, but overall it is a fine experience. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this movie July 7 2004
Format:DVD
Bette Midler is wonderful in this movie. Barbara Hershey gives an outstanding performance. I love their friendship and how it goes through the different phases, and yet at the end they are there for one another, to support one another. This movie is definitely a tear-jerker, yet a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite movies Feb. 23 2005
Format:DVD
I first saw this movie when I was about 11, and I loved it. I am now 25, and this is still one of my favorite movies. I didn't like the book much, but I'll never get tired of this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sad but Good! Jan. 21 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I never read the book this movie is based on but we rented Beaches and I thought it was a good movie. It is a tearjerker that is really sad and I don't always like sad movies because sometimes they can be too melodramatic and real downers but I liked this movie and I think Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey gave good acting perfomances and I was also impressed with Mayim Bialik (Blossom) who played Bette Midler's character C.C. when the character was 11 years old. I recommend this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding- I love this movie!! Jan. 18 2004
Format:DVD
I only recently discovered this movie. Years ago, I watched it through the beach scene and was bored so I never finished it. More recently I watched the whole movie - and wow! This is honestly one of my favorite movies of all time. It is very heart-warming!

5.0 out of 5 stars HEY!!! BETTE's A DARN GOOD ACTRESS Dec 24 2003
Format:DVD
She may not be the greatest singer, but she can act and bring tears to your eyes!!! And even sings halfway decent on Wind Beneath My Wings and on Cole Porter's I've Still Got My Health, too bad her recent Clooney tribute cd couldn't be more like how she sounded on I've Still Got My Heath with jazz trio!!! OH WELL it's a NICe tearjerker film!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Friendship Flick Nov. 11 2003
By T Berry
Format:VHS Tape
Laughter, tears and a friendship that lasts thru good times and bad, is definitely my kind of movie!
Bette Midler shines as the sassy CeeCee Bloom and Barbara Hershey radiates the grace and poise of her character Hillary Essex.
I literally laughed and cried, but most of all, let my best friend know how much I loved her because of this movie. Our friendship has never been stronger since. The bonds of "Sisterhood" rule!
