I was a die-hard Barbra fan by Christmas 1977. Look closely and you can see the evidence- Simply Streisand and the Barbra poster from What's Up, Doc? On a side note, I have the coffee table in my living room now. I still have the cork pencil holder located on the coffee table, but the cash inside of it is long gone. Wished I still had the sweater and my hair has been long gone for a couple of decades now.
On the recent airing of a Saturday Night Live Christmas special, one segment was an animated musical short called "Christmastime for the Jews" sung by Darlene Love. One of the lyrics talk about cruising the street listening to Barbra Streisand! The scene The Second Barbra Streisand Album CD on the dashboard.
I won't review the movie here. Others are better at writing standard movie reviews and let's face it, I can hardly be unbiased when it comes to Barbra movies. I won't spoil anything for you here but will say it's part comedy, part drama. It's geared for a big box office return. I cried at points in the movie. Barbra will probably be nominated for a Golden Globe award, but I don't think she'll be Oscar nominated (Don't shoot me!) I wouldn't complain if she was, but I'm not expecting it. Of course, you may reach your own conclusion after you see the movie for yourself.
