Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
Academy Awards 1968 - Best Actress: Barbra Streisand
Rating: 4/4 -- Few film debuts in the 1960s were more auspicious than that of Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl. Full Review
Well worth watching, even if most later Streisand movies aren't. Full Review
...Quirky, charming and very funny, Babs screams talent...
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
...As an exercise in unintentional self-revelation, it's mesmerizing, with Streisand hammering home the comedy...
Rating: 4/5 -- Dazzling musical romance is long but entertaining. Full Review
Common Sense Media
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. 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.
