After that lame sitcom, I had given up on Bette Midler. Amazingly, this film still stands up to this day. When I recently watched it again I was surprised - just as funny as when I was eight, except now I get some more of the jokes. A buddy flick with chicks, and laugh out loud funny. If you haven't seen it, get it out some tuesday night, load up on junk food, enjoy. Pair with Ruthless People for the definitive Bette double bill.
