A dreary and bloated production that can't sustain its 140-minute running time (the 1954 version is even longer at 176 minutes, but it feels like a live-action short when compared to this one).

While in its romantic and romanticized particulars, this A Star Is Born can often seem silly, hoary, disjointed or meandering, the essence of the showbiz narrative still exerts a powerful pull... [Blu-ray]

The slow-burn melodramatic love story takes a while to get where it's going, but Streisand's star power is in full effect and Kristofferson is deliciously bitter enough to keep things watchable.

Ms. Streisand has a great voice and a great stage presence, and she has made a number of good films in her career. For me, A Star Is Born is not one of them.

Barbara Streisand. Is. A Star Is Born. And two-shots have never been so completely arbitrary.

An ego project for Streisand and then companion Jon Peters, or a director (Frank Pearson), who can't handle his leading lady. Either way: This remake, marred by a fake, overly sentimental ending, is only worth seeing for Streisand's singing.

hopelessly stuck in the bell-bottomed clichés of the '70s... hasn't aged well and isn't much fun to watch

This is supposed to be an attack on Hollywood, but it seems that Cukor has tunnel vision.
