"Nuts" shows Streisand's versatility as an actress, a powerful performance by her and co-star Richard Dreyfuss.
"Up The Sandbox" is a strange film, that I admit to not really understanding - but it is funny in places.
"The Main Event" isn't a wonderful film, but for a Barbra Streisand fan like myself, it's still pretty damn excellent.
The collection is really for Barbra Streisand fanatics, but even if you don't like her that much you're bound to find one or two of the films highly entertaining. And for the price Amazon is asking - for FOUR DVD's - how could you go wrong?
'Nuts' is highly watchable, if you like Barbra Streisand, has good support from Richard Dreyfuss, and... well, it's all a bit predictable and sentimental.
'Up the Sandbox' is a minor film that's like the curate's egg. I like the idea of the film, and Barbra's performance is unusually understated. But there are too many very long daydream sequences that are really quite tedious and unbalance the film. Not bad though, if you're a fan.
'The Main Event' is a tedious boxing movie starring a heavy-looking Ryan O'Neal and a Barbra desperately trying to move the leaden plot along. Very, very boring and badly done.
It's a nice set nonetheless, with some good extra features. Each film has a commentary by either Barbra or the director, and the commentary was recorded in 2003, so offers an interesting perspective. There's even a cute documentary about the making of 'Up the Sandbox'.
All in all, a good set, which I think many people will buy just to get 'What's Up Doc?' on DVD.
On the technical side, the DVD transfer is pretty good, with generally acceptable picture quality and mono sound.
This boxset is well worth the money even if you only want it for one of the films. I've certainly got my money's worth as I watch `What's Up Doc?' about once a month! There is a quote from the film that I think sums up how I feel about how good it is ... "You can't fight a tidal wave." For me it is a tidal wave of humour!
The others are very good too and well worth the small investment.
This is an interesting,varied selection of films,the best being What's Up Doc?Up The Sandbox is an ambitious,unusual but slightly confusing fantasy drama.

Excellent film. Streisand is the best comic actress, hysterically funny! I liked it so much I bought it twice :)...Published 6 months ago by Ms.Lisa M.
"The Main Event" is the only dud. Love Barbra! Some zany, insightful, imaginative film-making here! Barbra is extremely talented as an actress as well as a singer.Published 14 months ago by KJBW
