Initially, the role belonged to Bette Midler but due to a neck injury had to back out. Was Mirren a better choice? Opinions.
Bette Midler looks so much like the real women. Mirren looks nothing like her and was awful in the end.
I have yet to see it, but agree she looks more like her. Plus, it would have been GREAT to see Pacino and Midler go at it!
