It has got to be said that there are not many movies these days that will make you laugh and cry the way Beaches does...... from the hilarious 'Otto Titsling' song (which had me in creases!) to the powerful and emotional ending to the film, in which 'Wind Beneath My Wings' is immortalised.
This is a film that has touched everyone I know that has seen it, and is a timeless classic that really illustrates the true meaning of friendship.
