Oscar Wins: Best Art Direction, Best Sound, Best Musical Score
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 41%
It's telling that this Barbara Streisand-starring rom-com musical is best known to audiences nowadays for appearing in Pixar's WALL-E, because though it released to initially positive reviews, modern critical eyes haven't been quite so kind to it.
While Streisand's star appeal is undeniable, this overly quaint, brutally paced 148-minute musical is quite the slog to watch today, thanks to an excess of so-so songs and plots which don't really go anywhere. No wonder it tanked at the box office.
You'll need a real affinity for old-school musicals to make it to the end, basically.
Stay at home dad who spends as much time teaching his kids the merits of Martin Scorsese as possible (against the missus' wishes).
General video game, TV and film nut. Occasional sports fan. Full time loon.
