    Divine Madness

    The Divine Miss M...what else is there to say? She is incomparable. She is in a class with Robin Williams, Sam Kinison, Whoopi Goldberg & so many more. But, who would they all be without Bruce Vilanch. If you want to know the greats better, get to know the man who made them great. A must own dvd Get Bruce!

    Great concert film.

    This is a "must have" live show, however, the first review mentions Tom Wait's "Shiver Me Timbers", that song, and another Tom Waits song from the original theatrical release, "Rainbow Sleeve" are not included in this home movie. Why, I have no idea. The movie is still full of great music, comedy and just flat out entertainment like only Bette Midler can provide!

    Wrong version of this movie was sent to me

    I loved the show (Full) Production Bette had done with this. The wrong version of this Movie was sent to me. The version sent to me does not include "Shiver me Timbers" and was the 95 min. version, not like the version of "Divine Madness" I saw when I ordered the DVD that had the run time of 1:26:00, and included "Shiver me Timbers" I was very disappointed when I received the DVD and found this out.
