Parental Guidance: FROM Good Movies We Can Learn Much About Life

Adelaide Now
FROM good movies we can learn much about life.
01-25-2013

We learn how to fake a you-know-what in When Harry Met Sally.

We learn to be wary of one-night stands thanks to Fatal Attraction.

And we learn father-son relationships can be tough thanks to Star Wars.

Parental Guidance, starring Billy Crystal and Bette Midler as straight-talking grandparents, is most definitely a movie that teaches us things.

Critics have panned it, but my family and I loved it.

Maybe it touched a nerve … in the movie, over-achieving and hyper-controlling parents Alice (played by Marisa Tomei) and Phil Simmons (Tom Everett Scott) go on a work trip, leaving their precocious prodigies Harper, Barker and Turner in the hands of Diane (Midler) and Artie (Crystal). Read More

Audio: Twisted By Bette Midler

Twisted By Bette Midler

“How ya doin’ girls? Long time, no see.
Listen, I’ve been to the doctor lately.
Honey, I just spent forty dollars to hear that from that guy?”My analyst told me
that I was right out of my head.
The way he described it he said,
“You’d be better off dead
than alive.”
I didn’t listen to his jive.
I knew all along he was all wrong,
and I knew that he thought I was crazy,
but you know I’m not. Oh, no.My analyst told me
that I was right out of my head.
He said I need treatment.
But I’m not that easily led.
He said I was the type that was most inclined
when out of his sight
to be out of my mind.
And he thought I was nuts.
No more if’s or and’s or but’s.
Oh, no. Read More

BetteBack June 5, 1977: “Live At Last” Review

Phoenix Arizona Republic
Manilow, Midler only middling
By HARDY PRICE
June 5, 1977

Three and a half years ago when Bette Midler played Symphony Hall, she let her piano player open the second half of the show. To say that Barry Manilow was a flop would be too harsh a judgment, but his.three songs weren’t anything to write home about.

As Manilow now talks about it, “For an unknown to do three songs in the middle of Bette
Midler’s act was like performing in the middle of World War II.” Read More
