Despite "The Driver", it was with Bogdanovich that Ryan O'Neal found his most charismatic roles, comedies that fits exemplary his temperament, a formal sophistication with an enchanting serenity, even in face of the most frantic screwball comedy, like this movie. And also, a great example of Bogdanovich's crazy little thing called cinephilia and of San Francisco's immense photogeny, in fact my favorite city.
2nd of Bogz' trilogy of blockbusters from the 70s, doc has some really funny gags and a serviceable plot to deliver those gags. Babs is the star of the show and I don't think she's ever been sexier. And I don't think Kahn has ever been more annoying. A great film not quite a classic, at least that's one mans opinons, mine. 70s icon and OG SNL mainstay buck Henry wrote script with 2 other maroons.
Bella,ma bella bella questa frizzante commedia di Bogdanovich in cui la Streisand è folgorante per bellezza,fascino,bravura a carisma.Tempi comici favolosi,ambientazioni sempre curate e piacevoli,movimenti ed interni dosatissimi ed un inseguimento finale da urlo:sono quei film che stai col sorriso stampato per un'ora e mezza e ti dispiace quando finisce....grande Peter.
As far as i’m concerned, this movie is comedic perfection. Its a shock Jacques Tati didn’t direct this film - it heavily borrows from his visual humor and vocabulary. Streisand’s abilities as a comedian are incomparable - she’s sharp, intelligent, effortless. Her performance is captivating. Eunice's character is worth mentioning as a standout performance, as well. Lastly, that car chase scene. A masterpiece.
Screwball en estado de ebullición. Bogdanovich comprende el espíritu lúdico que es propio del género y lo transpone en una película en la que la cruza entre el caos y el amor genera más caos y más amor. Todo aquí esta expuesto hacía su máxima potencia y cuando arranca es como un efecto dominó imposible de parar. ¿Un episodio de Looney Tunes dirigido por Howard Hawks? Puede ser pero mejor ver para creer y volver a ver
This is without a doubt one of my top 5 favourite films simply for its effortless charm, endless hilarity and quite frankly one of the most insane chase scenes i've ever witnessed. I really can't recommend it highly enough. O'Neal and Streisand's on-screen relationship is nothing short of perfection in it's finest form assisted by an incredibly witty script. Everything about it is great. Go forth, watch, laugh!
