Upon first reading the first draft of the screenplay, Barbra Streisand said she didn't want to make the film, feeling it wasn't funny and it would be a flop. Peter Bogdanovich convinced Streisand and Ryan O'Neal to trust him. After Bucky Henry turned in his extensive rewrite, which included fleshing out the supporting characters more so than the main characters, Streisand still wasn't happy. She said recently, "I was just a hired actress on that film. Just following orders." See more »

The most fun I've ever had in front of the TV set!
I think this film is the funniest movie I have ever seen. No matter how many times I see it, I always find surprisingly fresh and completely hilarious. Barbra Streisand's performance is the centerpiece of the whole film. She simply glows with warmth, sexiness, and humor. There isn't a moment when we don't find her completely believable. Ryan O'Neal adds a great physical presence and is gloriously restrained. The film also contains some great supporting turns from Ken Mars, Liam Dunn, and especially Madeline Kahn, who nearly steals the movie in her film debut.
