About the Movie
Barbra Streisand stars in this wacky screwball comedy that follows the antics of a big-mouthed Brooklyn housewife who is desperate to send her cab-driving husband, Pete, back to college. Betting on an unreliable tip, Streisand borrows money from a loan shark to buy pork belly futures.
One of Streisand’s best comedies!
All the wacky and hairy situations Barbra Streisand’s character gets into is funny to say the least. Her comedic timing is a gift not many people have. It is a good movie, but the main reason I find it so funny is because I’m such a big Streisand fan. If you’re just looking for a funny movie, this is it, but not hilarious.
For Pete's sake
Streisand,as usual, takes over almost all screen time as Peter S. is utterly wasted as an actor in this film;I would like to think it is, perhaps the fault of the director. It is, as always, Streisand ruining a film by highjacking the project.
A case of value for money;IN THIS CASE THE MONEY AS ALWAYS IN A STREISAND FILM IS THE GROSS ABOVE ALL ELSE.
