I did like this movie. It did remind me of Beaches, but that was good also.

I love Stella

"I have watched this movie so frequently that my video tape of it is practically disintegrated. The picture jumps all over the place and the sound drops out but that doesn't matter because I know all the dialogue by heart anyway. There are so many phrases I got from this movie that I still throw around. What great and fun dialogue! Next to Midler the only person who was more fun to watch was John Goodman. Just a hoot! As for the negative Jan. 2002 review regarding the ending of this movie, well. . . I do believe he/she missed the point."

"This movie was Bette's best performance since "The Rose". Definitely worth seeing and having for your DVD library. The pain she went through when she decided she wanted to give her daughter up to a better life was just amazingly unselfish. I would have given it a 10 if there were 10 stars! I only wish the Divine Miss M would make more movies like this!"
Bette Midler is heart-breaking

"This movie is really a beautiful, heartbreaking, tearjerking classic. It will entertain you, make you laugh, and genuinely fall in love with Bette Midler as the woman always looking for love, and only finding it in her daughter. I cried through the whole thing. It is really, really sad, but really great. In the end, when Bette gives up her daughter so she can have a better life with her wealthy father, you'll really want to give Bette a hug. Her character deserves the love and happiness more than anyone else."
