Beaches is definitely one of those “classic” chick flicks that you must watch with tissue and know that you WILL cry at some point in the movie. I remember watching it on television and on VHS, but the experience of watching it on a Blu-ray far surpasses any other way. Not to mention the extras you can enjoy on the Blu-ray copy. I could replay “Wind Beneath My Wings” a bunch of times and not be sick of it. I love that song and it especially made me get teary-eyed. Plus, the Blooper Reel was pretty funny! A big thanks to Touchstone Pictures for this review opportunity on The Mommy-Files!!!
I received a copy of “Beaches” on Blu-ray from Touchstone Home Entertainment to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
