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").

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Barbra Streisand was never more likable than in this energetic, often hilarious screwball farce from director Peter Bogdanovich.
'70s screwball comedy is lot of fun for the whole family.
