      Movie Info

      Bombastic wannabe actress Sandy Borzinsky (Bette Midler) and persnickety Hollywood hopeful Lauren Ames (Shelley Long) land in the same popular acting class and immediately find they can't stand one another. Worse still, the natural adversaries realize they share the same boyfriend, Michael Sanders (Peter Coyote), who then dies suddenly in an explosion. Believing he's still alive, they set out to find him, only to discover they're being chased by spies, and that Michael is not who they thought.

        Extremely funny! Middler and Long are a great duo in this movie, and I just loved the story, it's fantastic. I love this movie, and I highly recommend it.

        A fairly good comedy has a few laughs.

        Hadn't seen this since I was a kid, barely remembered it. Pretty funny, if unlikely movie. In the 80s, you really to suspend your disbelief in order to watch something like this. lol

        Bette and Shelley fall for the same guy, who has been dating them both. Good cast.
