Entertainment Weekly Rag Overlooks “Beaches” on Top 50 Tear Jerker Movies


Mister D: Yes, EW has done it again. They seem to have a bad habit of dissing Bette, but with this new list of theirs they have gone too far…everyone knows that of all the weepies and chick flicks, this is the list where Bette should at least reside somewhere….whether a critic likes the movie or not, they usually will insist this is a tearjerking, female grabbing weepie….so what’s up EW? Can’t give an inch for Bette? Should we write you a letter? Why, of course we should:-)
