Bette Midler plays a Janis Joplin-like singer overwhelmed by stardom and its excesses. Mark Rydell (On Golden Pond) directs what is a kind of hybrid showcase for Midler's concert talents and a standard pop biopic, with the usual rhythms of desire, success, betrayal, failure, and such. Alan Bates is the best thing about the movie as the Rose's ruthless manager, and Harry Dean Stanton and Frederic Forrest add some interesting seasoning. But as a whole, the film can't rise above its mixed purposes or clich├ęs. --Tom Keogh

Movie Reviews (1951-2000) (50 movies items)

" Bette Midler play a Janis Joplin-like character singing, abusing alcohol, drugs and swearing a lot. It was surprised by her devastating performance here since I have seen her toned down, Disney/Vegas/Broadway "safe"-performances for decades. Worth seeing this movie for her devastating, surprising performance and the excellent cinematography that could make one think one was seeing a rock-concert for most of the time."
