2.0 out of 5 stars Weak script holes this film below the line, 3 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Main Event [1979] (DVD)
Streisand and O'Neal (the latter surely one of the most unfulfilled talents in film history) struggle badly with a lame script and story. The film is just about watchable thanks to Streisand's screwball characterisation of the reluctant boxing manageress and O'Neal's sensitive depiction of the Rocky-esque underdog fighter. However it watches as a series of comic episodes rather than as a coherent whole. Further, in the second half of the film, the story, already straining credibility, takes a turn for the downright ridiculous. A waste of two great talents. I wouldn't spend any money on this one.

On the technical side, the DVD transfer is pretty good, with generally acceptable picture quality and mono sound.

Well i`m not a Streisand fan nor have i seen this film but O`Neal was excellent in Paper Moon,What`s Up Doc & Barry Lyndon,they were of course all made in the 70`s & i do agree that he didn`t fulfil his initial talent.Thanks for your review,i now feel i needn`t waste my money on this.
