Movie Info

Hillary (Barbara Hershey) and CC (Bette Midler) meet as children vacationing in Atlantic City, N.J., and remain friends throughout the decades. As CC, a loud New Yorker, pursues a singing career, Hillary, a staid Californian, becomes a successful lawyer. Over the years, they often quarrel or compete, but, as other relationships flourish and die, the two women are always there for each other, traveling from coast to coast through the most tumultuous times.

    (1988 Director: Garry Marshall) One of the best "friends" movies I have ever watched--watched with a great friend Saturday night. Highly recommend this tale of unbreakable friendship, jealousy & the realities of fame & life's choices. Stars Bette Midler & Barbara Hershey.
