Review
17 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this when I made a trip to Disney's MGM studios. You watch the film, and then a video on how all the special effects happened. It was really cute and funny, and I would LOVE to get my hands on a copy of this somehow!

I don't think this has ever been commercially released, but it was good nonetheless.

It involves Bette Midler being a music teacher. She is very unhappy and is giving a singing lesson to a student in her apartment. When she realizes she has just won the lottery, her ticket is swept out the window by a gust of wind. She climbs out to get it and craziness ensues. Her nemesis is a pigeon that seems to mock her every move. It's very funny!
