The 1988 movie trailer included in the DVD incorrectly states that Barbara Hershey was an Academy Award nominee when the movie came out; Hershey was not an Oscar nominee until 1997 for The Portrait of a Lady (1996). See more »

The version shown on the Superstation includes the following changes:
A different version of the conversation between CC and Leona on the beach in Miami, which omits most of the swears and changes a few of the lines.
A different version of CC's fight with the director of her first movie
The part in the bar where CC asks Harry for 50 dollars is omitted, going right from her song "I've Got My Health" to her ordering a drink from the bartender.
It has got to be said that there are not many movies these days that will make you laugh and cry the way Beaches does...... from the hilarious 'Otto Titsling' song (which had me in creases!) to the powerful and emotional ending to the film, in which 'Wind Beneath My Wings' is immortalised.
This is a film that has touched everyone I know that has seen it, and is a timeless classic that really illustrates the true meaning of friendship.
A true 'Chick Flick'...... definitely well worth watching if you haven't seen it...... And If you don't cry, you certainly are not human!
