It packs quite a wallop.

The question is, why remake - particularly for television? Apart from a clutch of great songs, the energy and ironic humour of this version more than match the original movie. And there is a post-feminist interpretation...

FineTV production of Merman vehicle with Divine Bette in great form.

Audience Reviews for Gypsy

Bette Midler is my favorite Rose out of the two I've seen. She's disturbingly intrusive because that's who she is as a person and coincidentally that's who Rose is too. When she sings Rose's Turn it's actually kind of revelatory because she's so...vulnerable for a second. I know this is just a TV movie but I really, really enjoy it. The singing is a thousand times better. But in general this script and music and lyrics are just really, really good no matter who's in it. Even though the ending is too 1950s Hollywood...yick. Give me manic breakdown anyday.

Not as good as the original, but I did really like Gibb in her role.
