  • Jerry from Brooklyn, NyYes, the movie was a kind of vanity project -- Striesand was in virtually every scene and she was the only one who sang anything. The movie would have been vastly improved if the tedious and often pretentious songs were dropped. It is a rather intriguing story of cultural differences, but the music is just plain awful, and the lyrics from the usually reliable Alan and Marilyn Bergman are pedestrian at best and often rather silly.
