+IHS+

I caught this movie again the other night and realised that its structure would fit perfectly into a Romance novel. Barbra Streisand and Jeff Daniels are probably just not who we tend to picture when we envision heroes and heroines. Laughing I found it to be a nice movie with a lot of "old Hollywood" charm.

However . . . if I were reading a novelisation and didn't know that Barbra was playing the heroine, I would not picture her in the role at all. I know it's her movie, but she felt a little like a miscast to me.

Gosh, I haven't thought about that movie in ages. I went to see it when it first came out. And yeah, not a typical Babs role, so the movie suffers.

Same thing happened when she decided to star in and direct The Prince of Tides. That was such a wonderful book but turned out to be an awful movie.
