Movie Info

In this documentary filmed over four days of performance at the Pasedena Civic Auditorium, Bette Midler enthusiastically displays all her talents as the Divine Miss M: singer, comedienne, actress, and irrepressibly outspoken performer. Up for a drubbing are the British Royals, lounge singers, and anyone else Midler decides to berate. Midler's comic routines alternate with songs that range from ballads to punk rock. Complementing her electrifying performances are excellent photography, choreography, lighting, and of course, back-up singers and musicians. Midler fans will appreciate her usual earthy humor, non-Midler fans may take exception to her language and the blue tonalities of many of her jokes.

Audience Reviews for Divine Madness

A real joy to watch with a dynamic performance from Bette Midler. Just really hilarious and equally awesome musical numbers with great direction and lighting as a part concert part stage show

The Divine Miss M has a ball here giving everything in a filming of her stage show and the result is that you have a good time too.

In some ways the program does function as its stated desire, to be the ultimate Midler extravaganza, but the constant wheeling in and out of every outfit and prop she's ever used becomes too archival. It's fun, but it seems at times that, except for the camera compositions, too much energy is being misapplied.
