Given how she grew into perhaps the most annoyingly egocentric entertainer in all the world, it's difficult to imagine that Barbra Streisand was once an ingenue.

Streisand is stunning, but the film is a trial, particularly when the music disappears somewhere around the 90-minute mark and all that's left is leaden melodrama.

This extended Streisand Special has done absolutely nothing to correct the flaws in the Broadway original.

It is impossible to praise Miss Streisand too highly; hard to find much to praise about the rest of the film.

The fun is there whenever Streisand is, and that could be reason enough for reacquainting yourself with Funny Girl.

Barbra Streisand in her Hollywood debut makes a marked impact.

Barbra Streisand gives one of the musical genre's most sublime performances--unfortunately in a stodgy, badly paced, overly produced movie that don't deserve her.

...the quintessential star vehicle for its leading lady, the 1968 movie that made Ms. Streisand famous.

Whatever its flaws, Funny Girl is one star vehicle that works perfectly for its subject.

[Streisand gives] a natural, unforced performance, easily one of the three or four best Best Actresses in Oscar history.

In lesser hands this would fall flat because nothing is written to comfort the supporting players. They are extras with names and blurred faces.
