10 WAYS TV’S BEACHES REMAKE STARRING IDINA MENZEL AND NIA LONG STANDS ON ITS OWN
ORIGINAL FILM STAR BETTE MIDLER GAVE HER BLESSING

Idina Menzel and Nia Long’s new movie airs this weekend on Lifetime. It’s a modern-day remake of Beaches, the classic tear-jerker about lifelong best friends.

The original film was directed by Garry Marshall and starred Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey. Menzel plays the Midler role, CC Bloom, the singer who struggles with lounge gigs before finally becoming a huge star, while Long plays Hillary, who meets CC as a child singing at the beach and keeps in touch with her through thick and thin — until the end, which is responsible for more ugly cries than The Notebook.

The original CC took to Twitter on Tuesday night.

No one is more excited to see the upcoming TV revival of Beaches than Bette Midler.

In the 1988 feature film, Midler played the iconic role of CC Bloom, an aspiring singer who meets Hillary (played Barbara Hershey) as a kid on the Venice Boardwalk. The pair’s lifelong friendship is chronicled over decades in the beloved tearjerker, which was directed by Garry Marshall. Read More

Bette Midler Classic ‘Beaches’ Is Being Remade: How should we feel about all of this?

The fever has broken. The president has spoken. The Secretary of State has spoken. The world might not collapse after all. And even if it does, there is one small reason to go on living: Lifetime has announced that its remake of the classic 1988 tearjerker Beaches (directed, lest we forget, by the recently passed and much beloved Garry Marshall), is beginning production this August. And for Bette Midler’s role as CC Bloom, the brassy aspiring singer who lent her name to Edinburgh’s most famous gay bar—and made a star of the young Mayim Bialik, whose rendition of “The Glory of Love” was the single greatest influence on my third grade year, much to the chagrin of those around me—the network has chosen its star: Adele Dazeem!

Lifetime is really trying it.

First, they gave us half-hearted biopics of Whitney Houston and Toni Braxton. Now, the cable channel “for women” is — gasp! — remaking a tearjerker classic.

Idina Menzel, Broadway and “Frozen” star, has been cast in a 2017 remake of “Beaches.” That’s right, the 1988 film starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey that still makes us cry every single time. Read More

Idina Menzel is headed for the beach with Lifetime.

The Frozen and Rent favorite has been tapped to take on Bette Midler’s role in a TV movie remake of 1988’s Beaches, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The film follows the serendipitous meeting of two kids on the Venice Boardwalk, who, though worlds apart in lifestyle, embark on an unexpected and lifelong friendship. CC (Menzel) is an aspiring singer trying to make it in Los Angeles until she is discovered by a director who gives CC her first big shot. Hillary (Barbara Hershey in the feature) is the daughter of a prominent civil rights lawyer who struggles to find her own destiny. Their friendship — even with its ups and downs — sustains them for decades. Read More

When I was a fifth-grader, there was no one I envied more than Pinky Tuscadero. After all, Pinky was the Fonz’s girlfriend! What I didn’t know back then was that Pinky and Fonz’s romance in Garry Marshall‘s unforgettable ’70s sitcom, “Happy Days,” was just a glimpse of what the brilliant writer, director, actor and producer had in store for TV and movie audiences over the next five decades.

‘Beaches’ Is Garry Marshall’s Weepy Masterpiece

‘Beaches’ Is Garry Marshall’s Weepy Masterpiece

Pretty Woman is his best-known film, but Garry Marshall’s Beaches reinvented the weepy for modern times. It will make you sob every time you see it.

A few years back, the 92nd Street Y in New York had the ingenious idea of having a Beaches “cry-along.”

The idea was, as the title suggests, that the 92Y Downtown would screen Garry Marshall’s 1988 movie for its most dedicated fans, who know that Beaches is not just a weepie, but in fact—even if you have a heart of stone—a film that leaves any human catatonically blubbing. Beside themselves. Wailing. Done. You don’t cry tenderly at Beaches. You don’t weep. You lose it. Read More
