This film was the perfect (and surprising) way for director Peter Bogdanovich to follow-up his cinematic landmark THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, and he keeps the film's momentum running right at the perfect speed. He also knows how to cast a film flawlessly. Buck Henry's marvelous screenplay contains many scenes with overlapping dialogue and double reverses, and the entire cast never misses a beat. Barbra Streisand literally radiates with magnetism throughout the entire film! Anyone who still wonders why she was the highest grossing actress of the seventies definitely needs to see this film; Streisand's performance in DOC is what being a movie star is all about. Many critics complained that Ryan O'Neal was miscast when the film was originally released, and those critics obviously missed out on the joke. The fact that O'Neal was considered a heartthrob at the time was all part of the fun in seeing him cast as complete goof; and I don't think anyone can deny the fact that he throws himself into the role completely.Read more ›
`What's Up, Doc?' Is a joyously recaptures the bubbly style of 1930s screwball comedies - and firmly establishes Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal as a romantic duo uniquely endearing in screen history. Included are a daffy luggage mix-up plot, dippy dialogue exchanges, a marvellous example of the art of hotel-room demolition and one of the funniest chase sequences ever, all over San Francisco. Dexterously written with a surefooted sense of the ridiculous by Buck Henry, David Newman and Robert Benton, directed by Peter Bogdanovich with giddy affection and cast with awesomely hilarious players, including film-debuting Madeline Kahn. `What's Up, Doc?' is no idle question. Among comedy films, it's the top. The final scene in the film makes fun of "Love means never having to say you're sorry," a famous line from `Love Story.'
FILM FACT: The film won the Writers Guild of America 1973 for Best Comedy Written Directly for the Screen Award for Screenplay for Buck Henry, David Newman and Robert Benton. Madeline Kahn in her first feature film role, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe® Awards. The film ends on a suitably romantic (and silly) note as Howard and Judy share an airborne kiss while their in-flight film is the Bugs Bunny cartoon that gave the film its name.

Soon all are inevitability going to converge. Toss in mistaken identities and a bubble bath. You have one of the most memorable comedies.
Lots of fun comedy with most of the clich's, Back and forth in a hallway, Obligatory chase scene, they show their puns, and even a quasi food fight, all over a hand full of bags. At one point Judy hangs around out side Howard's window; one wonders how her towel stays on.
If this ever gets sorted out we are in for a surprise.
If you find the concept of mixed bags funny then you need to also watch Sylvester Stallone in "Oscar" (1991).
