Editorial Reviews

From DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS to BEACHES, superstar Bette Midler has wowed audiences worldwide with her music, humor, and charisma! Midler now delivers a most engaging performance in her latest hit, STELLA! Tough and fiercely independent, Stella discovers that she is pregnant after a brief relationship with Dr. Stephen Dallas, but is too proud to accept a marriage of convenience from him or her well-meaning best friend, John Goodman (O BROTHER, WHERE ARE THOU?). Ready to face life without regrets, Stella single-handedly raises her loving daughter Jenny (Trini Alvarado). Through the years, the two share a very special relationship, until Stella faces the truth -- that she cannot provide her daughter with a life of advantages her wealthy father can give her. STELLA is a warm, humorous, and thoroughly entertaining film that speaks to the heart of all audiences!

This is a wonderful remake of a classic that I literally love more than the original. A very moving, wonderful make you think kind of movie. Bette did an outstanding job and it will make you see her progression from just a "comedian" to so much more of a dramatic actress. Something very sorrowful, yet heart felt.

I saw this movie many years ago and really enjoyed it. Told my wife about it and kept looking for it to come out on cable again, but was tired of waiting so I purchased it. It was money well spent, I still liked the movie and the wife enjoyed it too. If you haven't seen this yet, and are looking for something that both you and your spouse will enjoy, pick it up.

I have watched this movie so frequently that my video tape of it is practically disintegrated. The picture jumps all over the place and the sound drops out but that doesn't matter because I know all the dialogue by heart anyway. There are so many phrases I got from this movie that I still throw around. What great and fun dialogue! Next to Midler the only person who was more fun to watch was John Goodman. Just a hoot! As for the negative Jan. 2002 review regarding the ending of this movie, well. . . I do believe he/she missed the point.

Just a beautiful movie. Bette Midler is excellent. She has so much love for her daughter and wants to give her the world. It just shows how far a mother will go for the happiness of their child. Be ready to cry on this one.

I have this movie on VHS and finally found it on DVD. This is one of Bette's finest movies. It didn't get much praise and was called a sleeper, but the cast and this movie will make you laugh and cry. If you don't go thru the full range of emotions while watching this movie I don't know when you will. Bette is amazing and the final part of the movie still makes me cry when I watch it. Talk about selfless sacrafice for a child. wow.....

I have waited for YEARS to share this experience with my daughter. Living divorced life since she was 2, the look into single uneducated mom doing her best to SACRIFICE and give her daughter a BETTER life will have your tears flowing. Best mother/daughter bonding movie for anyone who has STRUGGLED to raise a daughter alone on zero budget. Opens conversation up --- so each has a new perspective of the other's place in that dynamic.

Quoted by Marlon Brando, the title of my review is how i feel about this film. My mother turned me on to this film, so it has sentimental value to me. Bette Midler gives a raunchy yet riveting performance as Stella Dallas, a fiesty, headstrong single mother raising her illigimate daughter, Jenny. Both actresses play out their characters with love and emotion. You can tell that they both actually cared about the characters they were playing and it shows through their performances. Standing ovations for both Bette Midler and Trini Alvarado. There is also wonderful acting all across the board in this film. John Goodman plays an intoxicating drunk with heart! Stella is the kind of movie that will make you laugh and cry, sincerely. Especially if you have a close relationship with your mother.

I've seen this movie several times and always watch when it comes on tv. I wanted to share it with my sister because it so touched me. This movie shows the unwaivering love and staunch devotion of a good mother. It is a tribute to moms everywhere. Bette Midler's acting in this flick is far superior to any of her other performances... and there have been so many good ones. It's touching, yet bittersweet. The movie demonstrates the deepest type of love, the kind that sacrifices all to give the best to another.
