Trivia

The Prince of Tides novel was recommended to Barbra Streisand by her then-boyfriend Don Johnson, who was a fan of the novel. She enjoyed it and planned to make it into a film, with Johnson in the Tom Wingo part. However by the time the film was in production, their romantic relationship had ended, which meant that Johnson was no longer attached to the role. See more »

Don't judge it by its cover
22 July 2001 | by (lincoln, ne) – See all my reviews

I avoided this movie because I did not care to see a romance involving Barbra Streisand and Nick Nolte. When we finally rented the movie, it turned out to be so, so much more. An incredibly intense film. I was never of fan of Nolte, but what a tremendous performance! It moves me to tears every time I watch this film. I am amazed the IMD reviewers give it such a low rating.
