Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
Academy Awards 1968 - Best Actress: Barbra Streisand
Rating: 3/4 -- In lesser hands this would fall flat because nothing is written to comfort the supporting players. They are extras with names and blurred faces. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Dazzling musical romance is long but entertaining. Full Review
Common Sense Media
...As an exercise in unintentional self-revelation, it's mesmerizing, with Streisand hammering home the comedy...
In Barbra Streisand Funny Girl thumps down an ace. Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- Few film debuts in the 1960s were more auspicious than that of Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl. 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
When she is singing--in a marvelous scene on roller skates--when she throws a line away, or shrugs, or looks funny or sad, she has a power, gentleness and intensity that rather knocks all the props and sets and camera angles on their ear. Full Review
New York Times
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.
