Product description

From Amazon.co.uk

The Goodbye Girl is a bittersweet comedy about relationships and taking chances. Though it deals with the human condition, what most quickly comes to mind are those wickedly comedic scenes featuring Richard Dreyfuss in an Oscar-winning role. He plays a struggling actor with a sharp tongue who has sublet an apartment from single mom Marcia Mason, a divorcie with horrific taste in men, who are always running out on her. She is left high and dry once more, stuck sharing her apartment with Dreyfuss when he hasn't the heart to enforce his lease and toss out mother and daughter.

Neil Simon's play shines under the direction of Herbert Ross as these two mismatched people find their contempt changing into mutual admiration. Quinn Cummings is more interesting than most precocious child stars; she seems brighter and her manner is prickly instead of cloying. Watch this film just for the scene in which Dreyfuss plays Richard III in an off-off-Broadway play. He lisps, he limps, he screams. It is the worst cinema you will ever see--and thoroughly hilarious. --Rochelle O'Gorman

IMPORTANT - CHECK YOUR DVD PLAYER BEFORE ORDERING!!
Looking through the reviews, I can see that a lot of people have been disappointed to discover that this DVD will not play for them.
This is because it is an American import - a REGION 1 DVD. UK players are invariably locked to REGION 2, so USA imports will NOT play on them. I have a multi-region player (purchased legally from Amazon - do a search, you'll find plenty), so I was able to watch it.

..... anyway, the movie itself - it's a nice little feelgood romantic comedy, which still outshines most of the others, even after over thirty years.

No swearing, no "bedroom" scenes, just a sweet, funny story, featuring three main characters who bounce off each other perfectly - great interaction, excellent comic timing, and a decent plotline.

Richard Dreyfuss gives a brilliant Oscar-winning performance as Elliot Garfield, the quirky, likeable, and talented aspiring actor. In particular, I found his reluctant portrayal of Richard III as a grossly exaggerated stereotypical gay to be both hilarious and excruciating - he deserved his gong for those scenes alone.
The other two main characters - Paula (Marsha Mason) and her daughter Lucy (Quinn Cummings) are well written, and they interact well with Dreyfuss' character - I found myself liking them all, and actually wanting it to work out for them.

If you want to be entertained for a couple of hours, this is a nice way to do it.

Hardly ever gets shown on to, but well worth watching. Some brilliantly funny one liners and Richard Defus never ceases to please. A real feel good movie
