A terrific, thought provoking, at times heart wrenching twist on the typical rom-com proving again Streisands singular gifts.

Downer story does match its book source, for the most part. Great cast.

I didn't wanna like it. But by movie's end, I didn't hate it. Points for that.

A uniquely awful vanity piece.

Audience Reviews for The Mirror Has Two Faces

I think a great movie could have been made of this book. Unfortunately director Barbra Streisand's ego gets in the way. Every shot seems to be done to try an glamorize Ms. Streisand. It pulls the drama and focus away from the story.

I don't think a single moment of this movie made any sense. Its also poorly edited and just about everyone (including even Jeff Bridges) is unconvincing in their perspective roles.

A solid romantic comedy that gets a lttle eh in the middle but is pretty charming and actually has a really strong cast as well as a clever script.
