Bette is a wildly successful singer with numerous hits, adoring fans, and showbiz friends who often drop by. Keeping her grounded is her professor husband Roy, best friend Connie, and her thirteen-year-old daughter Rose.
An unsuccessful over-the-top actress becomes a successful over-the-top authoress in this biography of Jacqueline Susann, the famed writer of "Valley of the Dolls" and other trashy novels. Facing a failing career, Susann meets a successful promoter who becomes her husband. After several failures to place her in commercials and a TV quiz show, he hits upon the idea for her to become a writer. In the pre-1960s, her books were looked upon as trash and non-printable. But then the sexual revolution hit and an audience was born for her books. The story shows the hidden behind the scenes story of Susann's life, including her autistic son and her continuing bout with cancer that she hid up to her death.Written by

Well! We went to this movie just to see "Niles" and were surprised by how much we enjoyed it. I'm afraid it won't do as well as it deserves because people don't understand what it's about or don't know how good it is. Of course, it's understood that you have to enjoy the Divine Miss M. at her flamboyant best and you have to appreciate that Nathan Lane played the role exactly as it should have been played--he was there, just as Irving was, to support the main character. It also helps if you remember the fashions and hairstyles of the 60's. This is the era of Yak at its tacky best.
To reviewers who complain that the movie can't make up its mind whether it's a comedy, drama etc. I say give me a movie with variety. Anytime I can laugh and cry at the same movie, I've had a good time. And my husband enjoyed it too! Thank goodness I'm a Niles fan. Otherwise, I probably would have missed this movie.
