Five years after this film, director Garry Marshall appeared in an uncredited role of a man dressed as Satan for Halloween in Hocus Pocus (1993) which also starred Bette Midler in a leading role. See more »
Late in the movie, we see C.C. standing against the beach house. There's shot of her walking to center of deck, followed by another of her still against the beach house. See more »
Some television versions contain alternate lines in the scene where C.C. and Hilary have their argument in the department store. For example, in the theatrical version, C.C. remarks to Hilary, "You have been a total bitch ever since you came to New York!" In some TV prints, she says, "You have been completely unbearable ever since you came to New York!" See more »
Was not very certain if I really wanted to view this film, some times Midler can be way out in left field. However, in this film Bette Midler, (CC Bloom),"That Old Feeling",'97 plays a very self-centered person who will stop at nothing to get what she wants and if it is a career on the stage, just forget about love or a husband and children. Barbara Hershey,(Hillary),"Riding the Bullet",'04, is a childhood friend of CC Bloom and in some ways they help each other, even though they are complete opposites. There is plenty of comedy, lots of fighting, and more drama than you can handle. Midler sings outstanding songs we all know by heart and it is a very entertaining film, but very very SAD!
