Streisand's 'Whats Up Doc?' Who Else LOVES this Movie?
Just watched Streisand's 'Whats Up Doc?' last night. First time in a few years and I forgot how funny it was. I love this movie! Any other fans? I think its her best comedy. I also think Striesand never looked better as she did in this film. I mean, she was F-ing Hawt!

2. As a kid, I looked forward to it on TV- and thought she was the most beautiful
woman ever.. and couldn't understand why Ryan O'Neal kept resisting her. Nowadays, I'd be more into Madeline Kahn.

3. *raises hand*
It's gotta be in my top five all-time favorite comedies. Screamingly funny.

I don't really consider it a "Streisand film," though. Even though she's the focus and has page after page of great lines (and does a wonderful job), the film is really carried by Ryan O'Neal and Madeline Kahn, and, to a lesser extent, Kenneth Mars and even John Hillerman.

But the real genius is Peter Bogdanovich. We already knew he was a gifted visual director from "The Last Picture Show," but "What's Up, Doc?" and his later "Paper Moon" showed he can elicit amazing performances over a variety of genres. He's one of a select few whose films I'll watch simply because they directed.

5. Love it, and have only seen it twice
Once on regular ol' TV, the last time in beautiful hi-def with no cuts or commercials.

6. This was a good one! did you know it's a sort of remake of the old Hepburn film
Bringing Up Baby? that one is also very funny! Clark Gable and Hepburn are hilarious!

7. MEEEEE!
It's hilarious. It also makes me miss Madeline Kahn, the funniest woman in the universe.

8. I like it very much.
It's a modern version of "Bringing Up Baby" with Babs doing a fabulous job in the Katharine Hepburn role.
