Editorial Reviews

Barbra Streisand, Omar Sharif, James Caan, Walter Pidgeon. The inimitable Barbra skyrocketed to fame and snagged a Best Actress Oscar for playing big-time Ziegfeld star Fanny Brice in Funny Girl (1968/155 min/G), and then she went on wowing them in the sequel Funny Lady (1975/135 min/PG). A must-have Barbra set! 2 DVDs. Color/widescreen.

I'm getting this even though I already own "Funny Girl". The price for this duo is less than purchasing "Funny Lady" DVD alone. The only negative is that the "Funny Girl" (only) DVD has a great extra entitled "Barbra in Movieland", which is a very entertaining, detailed, well-narrated, behind the scenes short, concentrating on the filming of the musical number, "Don't Rain on My Parade". Many DVD "featurettes" bore me as mostly everyone interviewed banally talks endlessly about how talented and wonderful everyone else is; how lucky they are to be involved in such a "profound" project; etc. This short was obviously produced, possibly as a promotional piece, during or shortly after the actual filming in 1968. An old abandoned railway station in New Jersey is shown being brought back to turn-of-the-20th century-life. Its only current inhabitant, an elderly (real-life) caretaker who has worked at the station for decades, including its more active days as a bustling transportation hub. His presents and occasional comments provide an interesting and nostalgic aspect to the piece He relates going to see the real Fanny Brice years before. William Wyler even gives him a cameo in the scene; But he probably won't go see the film, "My wife and I don't get to the movies much anymore", he says. I've pulled out this DVD a number of times just to watch this extra. I can't say that very often.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any collector! April 21, 2005
Format:DVD
I wanted to replace all my VHS's with DVD's and this is a perfect solution. You get these wonderful DVD's in one set and they are beautful to the eyes. The cover is very attractive and the movies themselves are crystal clear and the sound is superb. Not as many bonus features as I would like but I'm happy with this box set.

Far more than sharing the extended life story of Ziegfeld Follies star Fanny Brice, these two movies really show how Barbra Streisand transformed from a screen novice to a reigning goddess over the course of seven years. When she hit the big screen in 1968's "Funny Girl", she became an instant movie legend as master filmmaker William Wyler tailored a launching pad so accommodating to her personality and drive that it becomes apparent only later that the film itself is not terribly exceptional. The first half of the film, by far the best part, is about Brice's fast climb to stardom and her blind infatuation of gambler Nick Arnstein, played with a bit too much continental charm by an overshadowed Omar Sharif. The comparatively dramatic second half is really about the inevitable fate of their relationship. The energy that drives the first half seems to sputter in the second half, and Streisand is left to carry the whole thing to the finish line.

The fact that the story has anything to do with Brice seems purely circumstantial in deference to Streisand's phenomenal talent especially as a first-rank comedienne and the pre-eminent song stylist of her generation. For the latter aspect alone, "Funny Girl" is essential viewing, especially for three solo numbers penned by the legendary team of Jule Styne and Bob Merrill (who co-wrote "Gypsy"). First, as a young wannabe trying to convince Mr. Keeney at the local burlesque house to hire her, Streisand sings "I'm the Greatest Star" with an appropriately persistent brassiness that suddenly turns into a dramatic clarion call picking up the percussive momentum of "Don't Rain on My Parade" until the song title truly becomes fact and not a boast.

3.0 out of 5 stars One But Not The Other September 19, 2007
By MM
Format:DVD
Funny Girl is Outstanding! Absolutely FIVE STARS! The music is incredible and Barbara is at her all time best. Barbara recaputures the brillance of her stage role and brings it to the screen. A throughly enjoyable film. And then there is Funny Lady. It can not be said that effort was not put into the making of this sequel, however, it pales by comparrison to the original. The peformances seem forced, the music and songs are just so-so and some of the dance numbers are down right laughable. A true disappointment. The only reason to purchase this two DVD set is to be able to really appreciate just how good the original is and how poor the follow up film is. My recommendation is to definately purchase Funny Girl and rent Funny Lady so you don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hello, gorgeous" October 9, 2011
By 683
Format:DVD
While I prefer "The Way We Were" more, "Funny Girl" and it's sequel, "Funny Lady", are still pure musical fun with none other but the legendary Barbra Streisand. Barbra Streisand plays 1910s Broadway sensation Fanny Brice. These two movies practically chronicle her life as one of the Ziegfeld follies all the way to being a Broadway superstar. If you're a fan of these movies, then I suggest you should get this 2-movie pack, which will most likely be cheaper than getting the movies separately.

"Funny Girl" (1968) is two and a half hours of comedy, music, and drama. It chronicles Fanny Brice as one of the Ziegfeld follies, meeting and later on marrying Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), where they have a child named Frances. The first hour of the movie is fun to watch, where Barbra is a "funny girl", and about an hour and a half later, the film gets more more serious all the way to it's dramatic ending, where Barbra sings "My Man". A few other musical highlighs include "I'm the Greatest Star", "People" (her hit song), and "Don't Rain on My Parade". All together, "Funny Girl" is worth repeated viewings. It's a great Oscar-winning musical production.

"Funny Lady" (1975) is two hours of more comedy, music, and drama, and while it's not as good as the original, I still really like it. It picks up right where "Funny Girl" left off. It starts off dramatic, with Barbra still shaky over the divorce, and later on, she meets songwriter Billy Rose (James Caan), and he marries her even though they don't quite love each other. It turns from dramatic to funny to dramatic again. The thing about this film is that, unlike the first film, this one actually made me laugh. It was pretty funny, and it had good songs too, including "How Lucky Can You Get?
