Hands up if you used to watch Beaches at every sleepover ever growing up? If you did, thumb’s up, if you didn’t, call your girlfriends NOW and plan a movie night.
The 1988 Garry Marshall tearjerker starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey about two women who meet in Atlantic City as kids and together navigate all the crap adulthood pulls on you has been remade for Lifetime starring Nia Long and Idina Menzel. The first trailer is out, and yes, there is a new version of “Wind Beneath My Wings.”
The movie airs on Lifetime on January 21. And just in case you want a walk down memory lane, here’s the trailer for the original. (Keep the Kleenex close by.)
