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!

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.

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.

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.

This movie is based on Stella Dallas, and this was better than the original-of course it had been updated a few decades. Bette Midler acts wonderfully in this movie, and John Goodman couldn't have been better. The entire cast was amazing, but BETTE MIDLER!!!! MAN! Can she act?

Bette Midler plays a woman without much money, but with a whole lot of love to give, and the movie centers on mother and daughter, and just how much a mother is willing to give up for her daughters complete happiness!

This movie is terrific; it's funny and sad at the same
time. The strongest thing in the movie is the
story itself--that's what keeps you glued to the TV.
Bette Midler is good; John Goodman is swell, and
the whole movie will give you a good time.
Try it, you'll like it!

STELLA stars Bette Midler. It's a touching movie about the bond between mother and daughter. After a fling with a doctor, she becomes pregnant, and refuses to accept any charity from him. As Jenny (her daughter) gets older, she allows her to have a relationship with her father. Stella and Jenny share special bond, and there is laughter and tears along the way. When Jenny becomes a teenager, and closer to her dad, Stella realizes she can't provide the life for Jenny that her father could, so she sends her off. I thought the ending of the movie was very sad, maybe not intended but I thought it was. Lots of laughs in between the tears.

This movie was Bette's best performance since "The Rose". Definitely worth seeing and having for your DVD library. The pain she went through when she decided she wanted to give her daughter up to a better life was just amazingly unselfish. I would have given it a 10 if there were 10 stars! I only wish the Divine Miss M would make more movies like this!

This movie is really a beautiful, heartbreaking, tearjerking classic. It will entertain you, make you laugh, and genuinely fall in love with Bette Midler as the woman always looking for love, and only finding it in her daughter. I cried through the whole thing. It is really, really sad, but really great. In the end, when Bette gives up her daughter so she can have a better life with her wealthy father, you'll really want to give Bette a hug. Her character deserves the love and happiness more than anyone else.
