We’re having a debate with Bette Midler about her music. She doesn’t believe us when we note the eight year gap between her last, Grammy nominated album, Cool Yule, and her new one, It’s The Girls, is far longer than the one between No Frills and Beaches.

As gay conversations go, correcting Bette Midler on her back catalogue is pretty much the daddy of all things gay. Read More

Outrageous Fortune Tropes And Idioms

Bette Midler and Shelley Long star in this female buddy picture from 1987. Long plays Lauren Ames, an actress whose ambition far outweighs her success despite her many years of taking classes; Midler plays Sandy Brozinsky, a fast-talking, foul-mouthed waitress from the wrong side of the tracks who horns her way into Lauren’s exclusive drama class on a lark. Unbeknown to each other, Sandy and Lauren are both seeing the same impossibly perfect man, Michael Santers (Peter Coyote). When Michael inexplicably fakes his death, Sandy and Lauren wind up joining forces to track him down. A wacky, cross-country caper ensues, and both women discover that there’s a lot more to the man they love—not to mention their suspiciously homicidal Russian acting coach—than they ever imagined.

Bette Midler April 6, 1987: Bette Midler Goes To Writer Tama Janowitz For Movie Idea

Publication: Winnipeg Free Press
Issue Date: April 6, 1987

popupimgwatermark (47)

Writer Tama Janowitz caused a bit-of a stir In New York recently when the New York Times Magazine published her profile of Bette Midler. In Adventures in Tinseltown, Janowitz describes travelling to Hollywood to interview Midler, only to have the Divine Miss M offer her a development deal to write a script for a Midler idea.

In the article, Janowitz unabashedly agrees to think it over and maybe “take a meeting.” Writers aren’t supposed to get anywhere near that close to their subjects. Editor Edward Klein admits he was “a little bit” uncomfortable about the conflict of interest when the piece came in. But, he says, “It was all done tongue-incheek, with a sardonic quality. And since nothing came of it, I saw no problem. … My thought was, this was not a journalist on assignment, but a fiction writer (Janowitz wrote Slaves of New York) using her experience as part of her non-fiction report. I was very happy with the piece. I thought it was very amusing, a superb piece of work.” Read More

The Movie Scene Outrageous Fortune Review

Worst enemies become best friends, yes “Outrageous Fortune” is a buddy movie, but a buddy movie which when it was released in the 80s had a USP. That USP was that the buddies were two women, which may not sound such a huge USP but most buddy movies prior to “Outrageous Fortune” had always been about two men. But whilst it had this slightly different angle “Outrageous Fortune” is actually a very straightforward buddy movie with two women who don’t get on, hitting the road together where they have to help each other out whilst avoiding bad guys and solving a mystery. And to be honest it is a shame as for the first 20 minutes “Outrageous Fortune” is fun especially with Bette Midler and Shelley Long working well together as opposites who don’t get on but after that it becomes routine and at times a little dull Read More

“Whether to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles …”

Hamlet said it, Shakespeare wrote it, but Shelley Long and Bette Midler have to endure it. And this “sea of troubles” is more like an ocean of orchestrated oddballs.

From fables to farces, nothing in all of Shakespeare’s vast collection of writings ever matched the sheer lunacy of this epic adventure.

Midler is quickly becoming a veteran of cinematic oddball antics. In films such as “Jinxed,” “Down and Out in Beverly H*s” and the -pnenornenaNy successful “Ruthless People,” the Divine Mis:- M amply demonstrates . Read More

BETTE MIDLER IS UP AND IN IN HOLLYWOOD

LOS ANGELES— ”No,” said Bette Midler, flashing her familiar, sly grin, ”I’m not going to tell you. It’s the magic of movies.”

The flamboyant entertainer – who has long made comic capital out of her ample figure – was feeling coy when the subject turned to her striking, onscreen transformation from overweight to svelte in the new comedy ”Ruthless People.” Read More
