  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
Hillary (Barbara Hershey) is an unprepossessing WASP and Cecilia (Bette Midler) is an aspiring Jewish nightclub singer. But what began as an improbable friendship on the Atlantic City boardwalk becomes an unbreakable bond that's tested repeatedly when the chips are down. As the girls come into adulthood, they alternately fight over the affections of the same man (John Heard) and help each other manage their complicated lives.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there is a smattering of strong language and some implied sex (but no nudity). The film also deals with the parent of a young child dying, a theme that might be upsetting for some kids. This movie is a tearjerker, so know your kid before you watch.

Sexual Content

Very mild -- one scene of a couple in bed, both are clothed, one scene of a couple after sex, no nudity.
