Critically acclaimed as the best movie of the year, THE PRINCE OF TIDES was hailed by Jeffrey Lyons as a blockbuster, must-see, can't-miss movie.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Prince of Tides marks Ms. Streisand's triumphantly good job of locating that story's salient elements and making them come alive on the screen.
Rotten: The Prince of Tides is a big, messy, go-for-the-throat soap opera, the sort of movie in which every third scene feels like one of those soul-spilling climaxes they use for clips on Oscar night.
Fresh: Streisand hyperbolizes everything, from James Newton Howard's whackingly obtrusive score to Nick Nolte's overripe narration.
Fresh: A deeply moving exploration of the tangled emotions of a dysfunctional Southern family, this lovingly crafted (though unevenly scripted) film of Pat Conroy's novel centers on Nick Nolte's performance of a lifetime.
She should have won an Oscar for this!!!!
A fabulous movie!!! Definitely a must see!!!!
THE QUEEN OF TIDES
In her adaptation of Pat Conroy's beloved novel, Barbra Streisand is the epitome of screen glamour. Oh yeah, the rest of the movie is great, too. Especially Nick Nolte, Kate Nelligan, Blythe Danner and Stephen Goldblatt's lush cinematography. Lost Best Picture and Best Actor at the Oscars to "Silence Of The Lambs" which looks awfully thin compared to the richness of Streisand's vision. First American woman nominated for DGA award for Best Director.
