That Old Feeling

Movie star Lilly (Midler) and journalist Dan (Farina) have always bickered like Punch and Judy. Now, as ex-partners, they're about to be flung together for their daughter Molly's prim-and-proper wedding. Though both have new mates, their genitals engage in a fit of nostalgia. Let the chaos begin. As ever, Midler - a queasy cross between Dolly Parton and Anna Magnani - is a sight to behold, the cruel lighting transforming her skin into a substance worthy of Star Trek. Farina, too, has rarely looked worse. Both, however, have enough pure showbiz talent, flinty and vulgar, to hook you. Grim, nevertheless.

One of the funniest movies I have seen in a while. Midler is outstanding as Lily, and her comedic timing is superb. Gail O'Grady is also very well cast here. If you haven't seen this, it is a must see. Run out and rent it, just to see Ms. Midler's performance.
