Audience Reviews for Gypsy

Bette Midler is my favorite Rose out of the two I've seen. She's disturbingly intrusive because that's who she is as a person and coincidentally that's who Rose is too. When she sings Rose's Turn it's actually kind of revelatory because she's so...vulnerable for a second. I know this is just a TV movie but I really, really enjoy it. The singing is a thousand times better. But in general this script and music and lyrics are just really, really good no matter who's in it. Even though the ending is too 1950s Hollywood...yick. Give me manic breakdown anyday.

Not as good as the original, but I did really like Gibb in her role.

I'm always a little surprised by how lackluster a show Gypsy somehow ends up being. It's long and meandering and you really need someone with incredible charisma to carry the Mama Rose role. Bette Midler is passable, but nothing special. (Though neither was Rosalind Russell in the original.) She doesn't particularly shine in any of the musical numbers, and neither do any of her co-stars. Cynthia Gibb is probably the best of the cast, playing an awkward girl who suddenly discovers she has talent she never knew about. I enjoyed bits of the movie but not enough to make it worth recommending.
