What's Up, Doc? Reviews
Kinda like Bringing Up Baby meets one of those 70s's Alka Seltzer commercials - with Babs. A funny, silly movie.
What's Up, Doc? is a fun light-hearted farce that succeeds because Barbara Streisand can be quite charming and Ryan O'Neal has a good, dry, stone-faced delivery. The final moment of the film -- "That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard" -- is hilarious only for those who know O'Neal's career.
The film fails in other areas. Judy's motivations are mysterious; "You're cute" isn't enough justification for me. Likewise, all the other interesting parties flit and run around like idiots, but their motivations are never very clear.
Overall, as farces go, this one isn't bad, but ultimately, What's Up, Doc? is easily dismissed.
Barbara Streisand and Ryan O'Neal are my favourite comedy-romantic due uniquely endearing in screen history. Streisand delivers like a sniper and actually looks sexy and desirable and O'Neal is a perfect foil as an uptight college professor completely bamboozled by Streisand.
Director Peter Bogdanovich's version of the car chase which closes the film is so tremendously funny and entertaining - that's my favourite scene.

No, I am Hugh.
Stop saying that!!
Another Bogdanovich movie that is so hilarious from beginning to end. It is so hilarious that I could not stop laughing. Shot in San Francisco, the story starts with Howard Banister played by Ryan O'neal and Judy or Burnsy played by Barbara Streisand are the best comedic duo. Not to mention miss prissy Eunice Burns played wonderfully by Madeline Kahn again. It all happens when 4 bags each containing different items get mixed up. The result ends up to a hilarious chase scene on trying to recover all bags to the owners. So much funny antics throughout the scene, it's a delight to watch and will surely cheer up your day. One of the best comedies of the century.
