Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
Academy Awards 1968 - Best Actress: Barbra Streisand
It's hard to think of Funny Girl, in fact, apart from Barbra Streisand. She is the life force. Director William Wyler simply drapes the opulent show around her. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (UK)
...As enthralling as the day it was released in 1968. It is a superb example of Hollywood craftsmanship in which all elements have been blended to perfection with inspired artistry...
Los Angeles Times
...Quirky, charming and very funny, Babs screams talent...
Rating: 9/10 -- William Wyler's adaption of the stage musical is transformative for many millennials. Whether wearing a hijab, sporting a yarmulke, or bareheaded, my students embrace Streisand's Brice and the star/character's professional chutzpah & insecurities. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- A fine movie musical and a nice reminder of the time when Streisand was a talent rather than a 'phenomenon'. Full Review
Barbra Streisand in her Hollywood debut makes a marked impact. Full Review
This extended Streisand Special has done absolutely nothing to correct the flaws in the Broadway original. Full Review
In FUNNY GIRL, the highly fictionalized musical biopic, Barbara Streisand makes her film debut in a reprisal of her Broadway role as Ziegfeld star Fanny Brice. Brice, a poor Jewish girl from New York's Lower East Side, rose to fame and won audience's hearts everywhere with her comic antics and powerful singing. Unfortunately, she had far less success in her personal life, and the film focuses on her doomed romance with her first husband, gambler Nicky Arnstein.
