The Owl and the Pussycat Photos

Movie Info

Trying to keep her head above water, New Yorker Doris (Barbra Streisand) accepts money for sexual favors from men who occasionally visit her apartment, a practice that bugs her neighbor, Felix (George Segal), an unsuccessful writer. Felix gets her booted, but when she complains to him, he lets her bunk at his place. Reserved Felix and outlandish Doris have little in common, but as they're forced to spend more time together, their proximity leads to an increasing mutual fondness.

Audience Reviews for The Owl and the Pussycat

  • Jan 14, 2020
    "There are eight million stories in the naked city, and this is just one of them." Or, boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl again, in this personality-fueled riff on the old opposites attracting motif. It manages to rise above "cute" every now and again, but not enough to really recommend it. It's nice to recall The Big Apple of the early 70s though, the world before cellphones. Not bad.

    In the final half hour the characters become more enduring than obnoxious . . . its still a sanitized version of the original play, but its enjoyable in a weird way.

    Sharp dialogue and excellent performances from the two leads, but the lack of genuine humor renders it a simple star vehicle. 67/100 More at: http://thegreatestreview.blogspot.com/2010/12/streisand-as-hooker-and-segal-as.html
