For 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.

Entertainment Weekly, Jess Cagle

We've 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
