MY THOUGHTS

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.

    As overplayed as that song was on the radio, I love it too! The soundtrack is one of my favorites. Love me some Bette Midler!

  2. Karyn says:

    I wonder if I watch it again if I’d cry as much as I did when I was younger! One of those movies that will be fun to show my daughter on a chick flick day.

  3. Shannon says:

    @Lisa Davis … Even listening to the song makes me cry sometimes. All depends on the time of year and the time of month! LOL @Karyn….definitely a good chick flick! I totally agree with ya!

    I also have to say that watching movies in blu ray really is experiencing them in a new way. Very cool to enjoy an older flick in hd.
