5.0 out of 5 starsCan't resist: A classic. Barbra and Omar have great chemistry
Verified purchase
I cannot resist writing a review: Of course, "Funny Girl" is a classic which launched the film career of "La Streisand" (as they say in Italy). I just wanted to point out how good Omar Sharif is, too. It's a difficult role. He has to have real screen chemistry with Barbra and obvious charm. There is a subtlety about his performance. He never upstages Streisand. Yet his portrayal manifests a real human being. He's not just a "coat-rack". The audience seems to understand him. I can't think of any other actor who could have done as well. So, of course, it's Barbra's film but she had a good co-star, too.

3.0 out of 5 starsEntertaining Movie
Verified purchase
The story is entertaining and funny, but I don't recommend the format I have, unless you don't mind a blacked-out pre-movie time and intermission screen. I thought the the input section of the TV remote and TV wasn't on the right setting or that something was wrong with the DVD, but there wasn't. It's all functioning as it is designed to. It's rated G, but that doesn't mean it is entirely devoid of intimate scenes. There is no nudity, or bedrooms scenes, but they're singing about the affair they're going to have. I state that to let you know whether it is acceptable for some audiences. The story itself is good and funny in parts. Even though I've seen it several times, it seems funnier to me now. It has a sad ending. I see why Mr. Macho has a low self-esteem, but gambling isn't the only thing he could do for a living, even if she still made more money than he did. Although I love the movie, I found his spineless nature irritating. He made a commitment by entering into the marriage agreement, and loves his wife still. But he divorces her anyway, and leaves her and their child. He should get saved first, do some community service, get an education and learn a respectable job skill and both of them go to a marriage counselor to work out the kinks. Breaking up his family wasn't the answer.

5.0 out of 5 starsthere will never be a bigger star than Streisand. she is the ultimate renaissance girl

there will never be a bigger star than Streisand. she is the ultimate renaissance girl. the heavens have difficulty containing her energy and her bigger than life talent. i love to watch her sing, act, just be. some ppl live to entertain and some ppl were created to love and breathe entertainment. the entire cast were superb in their roles. the music was on par and the plot was an emotional roller coaster.

5.0 out of 5 starsJust as Great as the First Time
Verified purchase
Just as great as the first time I saw it. I recently read a biography on Streisand, which was extremely impressive, demonstrating what a genius she is. Her determination to succeed as an independent individual, who knows exactly what she wants to accomplish is formidable. I watched the movie again with my newly found knowledge from the book and am even more taken with both Streisand and "Funny Girl" this time around. Highly recommend, of course.

3.0 out of 5 starsI don’t mean to rain on anybody’s parade, but this is a mediocre musical.
Verified purchase
It’s funny, I understand why people like this movie, but it’s not one of my favorites. Fanny Brice, played by Barbara Streisand, is entertaining on the screen, but if I had to deal with someone as exasperating as her in real life, it would be miserable. And apparently Streisand and Brice share some common attributes in this regard, according to the filmmakers. I don’t mean to rain on anybody’s parade, but Funny Girl is a mediocre musical.

16 God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life. 17 God did not send his Son into the world to judge the world. He sent his Son to save the world through him. John 3:16,17 NIRV

18 Whoever believes and has decided to trust in Him [as personal Savior and Lord] is not judged [for this one, there is no judgment, no rejection, no condemnation]; but the one who does not believe [and has decided to reject Him as personal Savior and Lord] is judged already [that one has been convicted and sentenced], because [b]he has not believed and trusted in the name of the [One and] only begotten Son of God [the One who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, the One who alone can save him]. John 3:18 Amplified Bible

15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was hurled into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15 Amplified Bible
Revelation 20:15 Since everyone who goes before the great white throne is to be tried and sentenced for his deeds, and no one is sinless, the only way to escape condemnation and the “lake of fire” is to have one’s name in the “Book of Life” through authentic faith in Jesus as Lord (see Ps 69:28; Phil 4:3; Rev 3:5). Amplified Bible Study Notes

God bless you!

5.0 out of 5 starsAll Time Classic
Verified purchase
If you've ever read anything about Fanny Brice, you will know that this is a totally fabricated whitewash of her true story. But who cares? Streisand is wonderful as Fanny and Omar Sharif will give you goose bumps with that smoldering look of his. An all time classic movie, with great music and costuming to match. This is definitely one of those movies that is so enjoyable that you could watch it over and over again. I know I have.

3.0 out of 5 starsSad
Verified purchase
A sad musical – I didn’t know that made such a thing. Well, you might say, life can be sad, so movies based on life can, even should, be sad too. The trouble with that argument, is that nothing in this movie is true. When Nick was dating Fanny and failing to propose marriage to her, she knew that he was already married. As for Fanny’s teenage virgin act, she had already been married for 3 years and then divorced. As for Nick’s charm, the actual Nick, operating under a half dozen fake names, used it not just to gamble but to commit acts which landed him first in Sing Sing prison, and later in Leavenworth. I guess this is the high school version of their lives. So why 3 stars? Because as bad as the writing is, Barbra Streisand rises above it and earns the academy award she won for this role; she’s really terrific. But still, a sad musical? Sad.
