Movie Reviews

Have a laugh... | England | 05/13/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What a brilliant film. It's not overly clever. It's a touch formulaic. It's even a bit silly in places (Bette Midler will NEVER pass as a man by penciling on a moustache and wearing trousers), and the fashion will make you wince.There is something about this comedy that makes me giggle. I don't know why - is it the way Midler and Long ham it up? Is it the silly girl bonding thing? Is it the crap but hilarious jokes? The bit where Long is shot, even though it's corny, still makes me think 'Ahh...she did it' (You'll know what I mean when you watch the movie).All in all, you'll be hard pushed to find such a silly yet brilliant film. I heartily recommend watching it, and even buying the video (if it ever becomes available)."
Very funny, but loses spark in the second half

"Released soon after the success of "Down and Out in Beverley Hills", this film saw everyone's favourite Midler teaming up with Shelly Long for one quite funny movie!Both women are total opposites who cross paths through a highly unlikely scenario. Then its fun and games and many laughs. Yet the film lacks something, really noticeable in the second half where it just goes a bit wayward.Still worth seeing though for the fantastic performances by Midler and Long! Worth owning on DVD despite its lack of extras."
One of my favorite movies | 04/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this movie, Bette Midler and Shelley Long are great together. They go from enemies to friends, on a crazy chase to find this guy who's in some kind of trouble, but they never guessed how much, he had gone out with both of them, and they were going to find him to make him choose which one he wanted. They find out he's a bad guy, and save the day in there own crazy way, I love this film."
A Great Movie and DVD but.....

"I love this movie. It is a classic and one of my all time favorites and I was thrilled when I heard it was going to be released on DVD. The transfer is great as is the sound. My only complaint is that on the DVD package it says the Theatrical Trailer is included on the DVD. It is not. THe only menu options are scene access and audio set-up. Probably a boo-boo on the Buena Vista people. Oh well. Thats all"
