About the Movie
Rose Morgan (Barbra Streisand), who still lives with her mother (Lauren Bacall), is a professor of Romantic Literature who desperately longs for passion in her life. Gregory Larkin (Jeff Bridges) a mathematics professor, has been burned by passionate relationships and longs for a sexless union based on friendship and respect. They're two people with almost nothing in common, but Fate in the form of a personal ad and a meddling sister brings them together. And without physical attraction to complicate matters, Rose and Greg become best friends and soon agree to an unconventional marriage builton intellectual passion instead of sexual heat. But when two people meet, marry, try to remain celibate and then fall in love they realize they are courting chaos. Directed by Streisand and co-starring Pierce Brosnan, George Segal, Mimi Rogers and Brenda Vaccaro, "The Mirror Has Two Faces" explores our modern myths of sex and beauty with a brilliant combination of humor and poignancy that makes it "the year's best romantic comedy".

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [Barbara] Streisand's direction is solid, save for a needless run-on ending over the final credits, and cinematographers Dante Spinotti and Andrzej Bartkowiak make New York City sparkle.
Not a Barbara S. fan
This is one of my all-time favorite movies and I'm not a "Barbara" fan. The insecure ugly duckling transforming into a beautiful courageous swan is delightful to see. No matter how many times I see this one, I'm still moved to tears as the story unfolds and I rejoice as I watch her transformation into a beautiful and confident woman being brought to life.
Love this movie!
When I first watched this movie I was.. uncertain. But I soon fell in love. This movie is my all time favorite. I love the character of Rose, and the character depicts a more modern "normal" woman. Not a hot skinny ..babe, but a smart, funny, beautiful woman with layers. And I always cry at the failed.."sex scene" that hits almost every women's insecurity. But I love that she does not give up, but grows. She changes. Everyone can. But Rose stays the same, she justs.. she has been polished so the world could see what was already there. Even if you are not a "Barbara Fan", the story line of the movie has a more realistic quality of love and relationships. It is not mushy, it's..wonderful!
One of my favoriate
I saw this movie when it first came out and I fell in love with it then. I had not seen it in years and well I love it more now, it's funny, heart warming, and the story and the cast of characters are perfect....
