This sis the best movie in the world. It surpasses the meaning of friendship to all extremes. It takes the word courage and mingles it with love. This movie was phenomenal. Great Performance Bette & Barbara.

Can anyone tell me the lyrics to the song bette midler sings when shes in the bunny suit?

I laughed and I cried (and Im not usually a crier). Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey give a new meaning to PHENOMENAL.

Melissa: She sings "Wind Beneath My Wings"
Elise: (I hope I'm not too late for this) Beaches portrays the loss of friendship when all of a sudden Hillary stops writing to C.C.

Jello: There's a book?

Kandice: Do you want what Barbara Hershey died of, or what her character died of?

Isn't it beautiful that after all these years Beaches is still a tear-jerker that doesn't suck. That film is tough, emotional, candid and uplifting... no matter how 'sophisticated' my film choices have become as I mature, Beaches stands as my all-time fave.

I watch it at least once a year.

This film is special to me because my tough mother and I shared a strong bond over our adoration for Bette Midler. She showed Beaches to me when I was 11 and I fell in love with it. We both cried and emotionally connected for the first time in an adult sense. Then Mum told me a few weeks later that "Wind Beneath My Wings" was her favourite modern song, so I learned every note of the music and lyrics.

By the time I was 14, my Mum had succumbed to cancer and when I really missed her, I would sing that song for her with all the passion my jazz-trained was capable of.

Beaches is an amazing film for people coping with loss and grief issues.There is something so realistic and appealing about the imperfect characters and the way their passions drive them together and apart.

Besides all that, Beaches features the sweetest lullabye I have ever heard;

"Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine

Little one when you play
Don't you mind what they say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine

If they knew sweet little you
They'd end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for
The right to hold you

From your head to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine"

Bette Midler continues to have an incredibly successful career and I love her every incarnation - from 'Bath-house Betty', to ballad-loving diva or vengeful 'first wife'. Ms Midler is, without a doubt, among the finest performers America can lay claim to.
