Product Description

Amazon.ca

This film actually began with the idea of remaking A Star Is Born with the then-hot couple James Taylor and Carly Simon. Eventually, it evolved into this vanity production for Barbra Streisand, with Kris Kristofferson as the designated stud muffin. The story remains the same: A superstar on the decline meets a young singer on the way up. They marry as their career trajectories intersect, and his eventual demise is meant as a sacrifice to further boost her career by ridding her of the burden of him. Kristofferson's rock & roll numbers are decidedly lousy--Hollywood's idea of rock music--and Streisand looks good and always sounds fine (she won an Oscar for cowriting the song "Evergreen"). But you can feel her heavy hand guiding every shot; she seems to serve as puppet master for director Frank Pierson, framing every image of herself for maximum glow. The ultimate date flick (if the guy can sit still through it). --Marshall Fine

Andrew's Blu-ray Review - Anyone who admires Barbra Streisand and regards to her shred of objectivity knows the woman has one hell of an ego.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Ok! March 4 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Barbra Streisand's and Kris Krisofferson's remake of A Star is Born was in the theaters when I was eleven years old and I remember my mother who is a big Kris Kristofferson fan going to see it. I didn't get to go see it in the movie theater but I remember watching this movie when it first premeired on HBO and though it's not either Barbra's or Kris' best movies I don't think it was the worst movie ever made and had it's moments. Not a movie I would want to buy on video or DVD but it would be fun to watch again at least one time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Star is Born for the 70's Generation! June 22 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The Classic James Mason and Judy Garland version of "A Star Is Born will never be topped. And I don't believe that they tried to in 1976. A Star is Born in 1976 was an incredibly popular movie, and although it was shunned ,and skewered by the critics, it played in theatres for 6 months. So in the 21st Century you have to have the wisdom of watching this movie through a 1970's lens. I ENJOY watching a rather young Barbra Streisand rocking out on the Finale-Watch Closely Now.
