"Soap opera all the way and the real acting honors so to Mayim
Bialik as an eleven-year-old Bette Midler."
"C.C. is played by Mayim Bialik as a child and by Bette Midler as
an adult. In
fact, of the two Bialik is the more memorable. Midler plays Bette Midler
and does an okay job, but Bialik playing Bette Midler is a wonder to behold.
It is hard to believe that Bialik herself is not going to grow up to be
Bette Midler, so perfectly does she personify Midler's looks and mannerisms."
