Potter, Q Magazine
The Boys soundtrack doesn't show her at her best. It's largely comprised of wartime
standards by the likes of Johnny Mercer, but it lacks overall cohesion, although
Midler's artless delivery of Dreamland and P.S. I Love You is stunning.
Weekly, Jess Cagle
come to expect Bette to reinvent the '40s big-band standards; on this soundtrack
album she just seems respectful. But there are some thrilling vocal gymnastics
on ''Stuff Like That There'' and a beautifully understated version of the Beatles'
''In My Life.'' B
