    While not her best role, this movie deserves no less than three stars. The comedy is zany and the romance solid.

    Only Streisand movie I like. Story about an aging boxer who is forced to return to boxing to pay back his debts. Good but not great movie.

    Female executive goes bankrupt and partners with a former boxer who returns to the ring, this gives her the idea to invest in him and become his manager. It's a decent movie and O'Neal alongside Streisand for the second time, proves to be a good on screen duo.

    Guilty favorite. Technically not a great movie, but just fun and good chemistry between O'Neal & Streisand.

    a reuniting of a previously classic screen pairing in the hopes of buffering a plain, mildly humoured script which couldn't be tempered by any director

    This is like a modern version of Pat and Mike in a way, but slightly funnier. Still it's a predictable romantic comedy. Overall it's pretty good.
