Funny Girl (1968): review- 3/10

A langourous Cinderalla fantasy, albeit without the ugly sisters, and therefore twee. Contains some memorable songs.

Streisland plays a woman who is, in turns, exasperating, rude, irritating, uneducated, materialistic and absurd . She meets an effete, occasionally successful, gambler of uncertain European origins and they have a relationship, later a marriage.

It illustrates the fantasy of every egotistical female of average looks that, despite themselves, they might be feted.
