Movies TV => Blu-ray => Movies Editorial Reviews One of the most popular movie musicals ever made is now better than ever on Blu-ray(TM)! FUNNY GIRL follows the early career of stage comedienne Fanny Brice, a role that earned Barbra Streisand the 1968 Oscar(r) for Best Actress. Only her mother believes Fanny can make it in show business, but when she gets her first break at Keeney's Music Hall, her hilarious debut gets her hired as a comedienne. Fanny becomes a star, falls in love and marries Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), a handsome gambler. The film's many memorable songs include "Don't Rain On My Parade" and the Streisand classic "People."

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.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.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 BibleRevelation 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 NotesGod bless you!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.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.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.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. Streisand and Sharif are marvelous in this movie! I can't imagine that any other actors could have played their roles with such passion and believability. I have seen this movie over and over again and 3 times within the last week! The supporting cast are to be commended as well. It's always great to see Walter Pidgeon perform. I'm not a big fan of movies with 'singing' but Streisand is the exception to my rule. I read background information on some of the movies I watch and it was good to read that Francis apologized to Streisand and came clean about who was responsible for cutting some of her scenes in the movie......the Director of course. See this movie for yourself and enjoy! Funny Girl to ensure you enjoy the best buying experience on the web we've made ordering from us as simple and convenient as possible.
