Favorite Movie Tuesday


Today's movie pick is:


I picked this movie because I absolutely love it & I'm currently in the process of finally watching Greys Anatomy so I'm having a total cry fest in my room right now. This movie just seemed perfect for today's pick.

Beaches was released in 1988 but I think I first watched it on like the USA Network on a weekend when I was 13 or so. I've watched this movie maybe 20 times & I cry every time. If there's ever a time when I need a good cry or I'm feeling down, I watch this movie & afterwards, I feel better.

I love Bette Midler! I think she's an amazing actress & a fantastic singer. She's a little on the wierd looking side, but there's still something about her. She and Barbara Hershey are wonderful in this movie. They are able to capture all the good & bad that comes with a friendship. I think if I had pick one of the characters to be like I think I'd be CC...she's so free willed & charasmatic. However, Hillary is refined & distinguished, so maybe I'd like to her but am truly a CC, ha ha.

If you ever feel like watching a good chick flick, watch this movie!

Here's the trailer:

p.s.
Here's a bit of trivia for ya...The title comes from a quote from The Princess Bride (1987): "If your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches." Pretty cool...although I've never seen The Princess Bride.
