Peter Bogdonavich ("The Last Picture Show," "Paper Moon") directed this wonderful salute to the "screwball comedies" of the '40s and '50s. Superstar and Academy Award-winner Barbra Streisand ("The Prince of Tides," "Funny Girl") and Ryan O'Neal ("Irreconcilable Differences," "Love Story") star as an eccentric girl and an equally eccentric young professor who meet at a musicologist's convention and become involved in a zany chase up and down the hills of San Francisco to recover four identical flight bags containing jewels and secret government papers. This box office hit also features the film debut of comedienne Madeline Kahn ("Blazing Saddles," "Young Frankenstein").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Not the least of Bogdanovich's triumphs is his success in scaling down Miss Streisand's superstar personality to fit the dimensions of farce.
Fresh: This picture is a total smash.
Fresh: The strength of a movie like this, of course, is that you don't have to believe too much for too long, because there's something else happening.
Fresh: It's never quite as tight or fierce as the original screwballers, but is fizzy and loveable and always worth watching.
Do Not Rent
If you rent this movie, you will be disappointed. After all, with the non-stop hilarity and the endless one-liners, it is unlikely that you will memorize them all in one viewing. Then, you will be forced to go ahead and shell out again to buy the movie so you can watch it as often as you like (which will be often) and that's just silly. Don't rent this movie, buy it. You can't help but feel for poor Ryan O'Neal's character and he is accosted by Barbara Streisand's bewildering character, but that won't keep you from laughing out loud at the delightful awkwardness of it all. Careful with your beverages - this is a soda-up-the-nose-funny movie.
