This is one of my favorite romantic comedies. It's the story of Gregory and Rose, played by Jeff Bridges and Barbra Streisand. The actors are superb: I admired Jeff Bridges in "Tron" and "Tron: Legacy", besides this movie. Talented actor, love his voice. Barbra Streisand is divine, playing the role of the ugly duckling first, then transforming into a beautiful swan. The whole cast is brilliant.
Each of us ladies has felt like Rose, at some point, but unlike most of us, Rose finds her Prince Charming... Thanks to an ad. Gregory is looking for brains, while Rose is looking for anybody who could save her from her toxic relationship with her obnoxious mother (played by a fantastic Lauren Bacall). In the midst of it all, Rose's sister, Claire, and her failed marriage with Alex, Rose's former romantic interest.
The plot is intricate enough to keep the viewers glued to their seats for two hours and six minutes. The ending is really sweet.
The music is lovely. The final song is sung by Barbra Streisand herself dueting with Bryan Adams.
Directed by Barbra Streisand! I spotted a few mistakes: an intruder in a shot and a few continuity mistakes, hence the 8/10 stars... But hey, give her a break!
"The Mirror Has Two Faces" is the remake of André Cayatte's "Le miroir a deux faces" (1958).
This movie gave me many laughs. Recommended.
Thank you Netflix for allowing me to watch it!
