I must say, the three stars make a pretty funny trio. Of the three, Hawn comes off best, as an actress who-in her middle years-is being subjected to the humiliation of playing "mother" roles. Keaton adds her malevolent touch to her usual Annie Hall type roles. Midler is surprisingly the lamest of the bunch. She's good in the scenes with Hawn and Keaton, but in others, she is constantly trying to steal the spotlight from the other actors (Sarah Jessica Parker, Dan Hedaya, Philip Bosco). However, it is quite enjoyable, and you'll love the wicked humor directed at New York high society. I only have one other major quip. Was the annoying show-tune, "You Don't Own Me", at the end of the picture really needed?
