Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal attempt to recapture the screwball spark of What's Up, Doc? in the labored farce The Main Event. Streisand plays Hillary Kramer, a bankrupt perfume executive who discovers that one of her tax write-offs from more prosperous times was the ownership of prizefighter Kid Natural (Ryan O' Neal). Kid Natural is now a driving instructor who wants nothing to do with boxing, but Hillary is determined to resurrect the Kid's less-than-spectacular boxing career. She installs herself as the Kid's manager and tries to get him in shape to go the distance. Along the way, the two fall in love. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
Just like with most Barbra Streisand movies I've watched:The Mirror has 2 faces,The owl and the pussycat,this film,The Main Event is just as witty and funny.I was inspired by the sports theme of the movie that the following day I bought that type of shorts she wore.She is so inspiring and sexy.
