Although I prefer the 1954 version this was a very moving picture, Barbra's as strong as ever and combined with Kris they produced deep and heartfelt emotions in scenes that made tears run down my cheeks.
didn't really care for k.k.'s character's hairy drunken self (which had a big sad consequence near the end), and the sentimental finale is a bit over the top of this remake, but streisand has an amazing voice!
I'd forgotten just how bad this was! Streisand bares her breasts, that's just scary! Kristofferson shaves his, why when he obviously doesn't work out? I somehow suspect that there may have been more cocaine involved than just that going up Kris's nose onscreen in this ego trip for both stars with dire unmemorable songs and worse acting and script.
Unnecessary remake, set in the world of music rather than film. Streisand tries, and she does do okay, but the movie has too many cliche's and lacks originality. Some great musci though, especially the Oscar winning song "Evergreen".
A very good story. Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristofferson have wonderful together, and Krisofferson's performance as a self-destructive rock star feels completely authentic. Aside from the language, this re-make is definitely worth seeing.
