Funny Lady...

~Saturday~  Bob and I watched the next movie, Funny Lady, in the list of Barbra Streisand movies, which we're working our way through in chronological order.

The synopsis

A sequel to the 1968 film Funny Girl, it is a highly fictionalized account of the later life and career of comedienne Fanny Brice and her marriage to songwriter and impresario Billy Rose.

My thoughts and observations

  • I have seen this movie before and didn't really like it. The best I can say this time around is that it was free to watch (Bob owns it), and it wasn't as bad as I remember it being. However, I'm still not a fan.

  • Themes touched on in this movie included:

  • Although I am a huge fan of Barbra, I have to agree with most of the points made in this scathing review of the film by Roger Ebert.

  • I gave this movie half-a-thumb up.

Have you seen this movie? If so, what did you think of it?
