This is Barbra Striesand's best comedy!
Columbia Home Video has finely introduced this classic onto DVD but they forgot a few major key DVD laws!
1 . If no extras can be included then at least add the theatrical trailer!
and the biggest DVD law! 2. Include an UNCUT version of a film as it was originally intended by the film maker!
When this film was originally released back in 1970 it was stamped with an 'R' rating then in it's re-release in 1972 they had re-cut the film down to a 'PG' rating.

This DVD contains the 'PG' version! while watching this version you'll notice where the cuts were made.
This DVD includes a two page booklet that states how the film was cut in the 70's including language and a scene revealing a topless "Funny Girl". It then states how the profanity was restored in 1999 for a re-release but without the nude Barbra because it was destroyed in the 70's. Well I hate to tell Columbia but this film isn't restored and is lacking a very funny moment in the original film.
One scene is when Streisand and Segal are walking down a city street talking and a car of guys starts following them yelling out insults, then Streisand walks over to them to tell them to
"F@&# OFF!"(cut out dialog) followed by these guys chasing them. This scene was so badly edited that it ends up making no sense.
There was a television version of the film that contained the whole scene intact with muting out the four letter word.
As far as the picture quality it is very good but if you're a fan of the movie i'm sure you'll be upset as well as i am with this hacked up verson.
Why did columbia home video do this??

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm with the critics -- DON'T CUT IT!! November 17, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Enough reviewers have groused that the verdict is in -- The Owl and the Pussycat WAS a classic that rocked, until the idiot Babs and the Columbia scissor boys got hold of it. If I were Buck Henry, I'd be angry. The majority of people who would be interested in this film ALREADY SAW IT in our relative youth. That means we saw Babs nude and we heard the "F" word that had everyone talking, as she tells off a bunch of moochers. More than a few of us need to give Columbia a piece of our minds. This is unconscionable. The nude scene was NOT destroyed, it was BLOCKED from the collar bone down (she was laying in Barney's bed, asking "Whatdaya think?" just before Felix joined her. It still exists in the vault. I own a copy with the "F" word intact, and in context, it only makes it funny. COLUMBIA, NOW HEAR THIS: GIVE US THIS FILM IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM, OR GIVE US NOTHING!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Owl Falls Flat June 16, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was dissapointed when I watched this in DVD format.....It has been edited from the Original version of which I saw when it first hit the Big Screen and later on VHS. There was no mention of this in the techical information portion. I wouldn't of bought it if I had known, and once opened, I couldn't return it. I felt I was Robbed. Usually the DVD is so much better than VHS because it Adds so much More information and Extras....Not this time........I am confused to WHY they edited it to begin with....The movie stood on it Laurels for All these years and now they decide to "soften" it........Very unacceptable!

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning - misleading listing July 21, 2004
This item is advertised as being the R-rated (original) version. It is not! It is the reissued (and censored) GP-13 version which is not nearly as good or as funny.

The listing should be corrected and we can only hope that one day the studio will release the DVD in its original version.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUTCHERED CLASSIC September 10, 2002
It's amazing how one cut can ruin a film. Well, here's the proof! I can understand why Barbra demanded her topless scene destroyed, but editing the 'F' word in a major key scene is unforgivable. This is a true classic comedy and a beautifully transferred DVD with its heart cut out! There oughta' be laws against this kind of hollywood butchery!

2.0 out of 5 stars What's happening to DVD's of the 70's???? February 8, 2005
I was really shocked and disappointed to find this DVD had been cut... this was one of the best films I saw in the 70's. I also discovered that another great movie, "Goodbye Columbus," has been edited down to a PG since its release on DVD with the original nude scenes deleted. I'm encouraging people NOT to buy or rent these DVD's and to write the studios and complain... it's bad enough that Columbia and Paramount have ruined their own product, but they didn't even have the courtesy to notify buyers that they weren't purchasing the original films. I agree with another reviewer here... we're being robbed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Babs and Segal charm in dated romantic comedy. December 19, 2001
Way back in 1970, Barbra Streisand paired with George Segal in this sleazier than Neil Simon,opposites attract, romantic comedy, written by Buck Henry based on a play by Bill Manhoff.. While Owl and the Pussycat is far better than your average romantic comedy (just try the 'Touch of Class' movies today for instance), the film is little more than an unrealistic, though entertaining sit-com.
Barbra Streisand risked a lot by playing Doris, a slutty, gutter talking (more rude than crude) part-time prostitute who is 'an actress with three, well two commercials' to her name. This was a far cry from the beloved Funny Girl or Broadway Diva who starred on T.V. specials the audiences accepted. George Segal is Felix, the overly nervous intellectual struggling writer. They live in the same apartment building. [...] About halfway through the film, the film gets a bit more serious and we learn a little more about the characters. This is not a utter fantasy type film like say Pretty Woman, but the characters are clearly not particularly realistic either.
The film is a relic of its era and perhaps a bit more interesting now because of that. Streisand appearing as a prostitute in skimpy outfits (you'll perhaps remember the lingerie with the strategically placed pink hand silhouettes when you see it from the old poster for this film). Streisand proved with her thicker than usual Bronx accent, and her portrayal of a risqué character that she had talent as an actress/comedian and there was more to her than Funny Girl. George Segal is at his best. His reactions, comic timing and slow burn frustrations are amusing and very entertaining to watch.
