Started off thinking this would be a fairly superficial movie. It ended up being a wonderfully emotional film. Very much ahead of its time and I wish these themes were adressed more often now by big name actresses.

The funniest Whoopi Goldberg movie about AIDS you'll ever see. Seriously though, given how tragic the premise is, coupled with the fact it was made in the 90s, which is the undisputed bummer generation, Boys On The Side was an oddly feel good film. Funny too. Also, 90s Drew Barrymore is beyond adorable. Even at 28, I'm still crushing hard lol.

(1995) Boys On The Side
September 15, 2014
One of THE most underrated, underappreciated movies of all time. Stellar performances by three stellar women. Whoopi Goldberg shines as Jane; Mary-Louise Parker radiates as Robyn; and Drew Barrymore sparkles as Holly. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll wanna watch it over and over again.

3 women from 3 different walks of life end up in Arizona together to start over in their troubled unsatisfying lives. Friendship & love find each of them as they blossom in their new environment.

Awesome cast, and an awesome movie. A cool insight on how friendships can be made out of the oddest, yet unique life situations. Funny moments thru the movie, and a "tear jerker" to boot...

Jane (Whoopi Goldberg) is a night club singer, out of work. Robin (Mary-Louise Parker) is a quirky real estate agent looking for a ride-share to accompany her to California. Her advertisement is answered by Jane, who at first was uncertain about her. A stop in Pittsburgh picks up a third, Holly (Drew Barrymore), escaping a violent and drug-dealing partner. Girls on the road, reaching understanding, respect, and care for each other. But this trio is different - Jane a lesbian, Robin suffering with AIDS, Holly running from her past, seeking one-night stands and a good man.

also stars Matthew McConaughey, James Remar, Billy Wirth, Amy Aquino, Dennis Boutsikaris and Jude Ciccolella.

directed by Herbert Ross.

The lead actresses have charm and have solid chemistry together. While not being overly memorable, it's passably entertaining.

One of the best "chick flicks" ever

Loved these three actresses together in this film but not sure if the theme has now been over worked (however, the reference to Thelma & Louise was priceless) but bearing in mind that it is from 1995 and I'm just seeing it now. Anita Gillette was wonderful in the role of Robin's mother and there were a couple of scenes from this movie that, despite the overall melancholy, had me laughing out loud.
