This isn't "Hello, Dolly"-- it's "The Barbra Show". She's too young by about 20 years, which means Mrs. Molloy is recast as an ingenue, and Michael Crawford is embarrassingly bad. The plot is altered as well. Saw this on stage in NY in the olden days and loved it. The movie-- tolerable.
As I watch this movie I am taken back to a time when I went to see musicals with my mom and her best friend. Barbara Streisand is a joy to watch and hear. This has always been one of my favorite movies to lose myself in. Thanks so much for putting it on DVD!
I haven't seen this movie in a very long time but I still love it. I watched Walle and had to get the movie. A fab. musical with Barbra Streisand!
The current trend is to look at Hello, Dolly! as an overdone, overproduced musical from an era when musicals were dying. And it is! But that doesn't mean it's not a lot of fun. This is, by far, my 12 year-old daughter's favorite movie. It's funny; and the musical numbers are really well done - beautifully sung, choreographed on the Big Broadway model - and it has just a little edge. It's totally corny, and it's Barbra Streisand - but sometimes it's a relief to enjoy a movie that doesn't rely on being more-sarcastic/cynical-than-thou. Is the acting going to win an Oscar? No. But who cares? It's good family entertainment. ''Before the Parade Passes By'' and ''It Only Takes a Moment'' will stick in your head long after the movie ends.
This is just pure happy time. When you want good songs, happy people & happy songs. This movie is for you.
The DVD version seems to be different than the VHS version of Hello Dolly with the same cast. It is almost as if it was filmed twice for different formats like 'Seven Brides for Seven Brothers' was. While all the scenes are similar, the DVD version seems to have more wider-angle views that put the viewer farther away. If you compare the DVD version's scenes with the VHS version, there are definite differences, including those in the dance scenes. While the DVD version is still very good, I am disappointed because the VHS version was so excellent. The VHS version is one of my favorite movies of all time.
This has got to be one of the best musicals ever! I especially loved Barbra Streisand's musical numbers. She's got an awesome voice, and really did her part well. This will have you singing for days! I hadn't seen it in years, and it was wonderful.
I've looked for this movie for years. I remember watching this movie when I was smaller and now that I've found it I'm overjoyed. It's one of the best musicals in my opinion and is a great family movie.
I thoroughly enjoyed Dolly when it was shown in Wellington New Zealand in 1970. I saw it time and time again, perhaps 20 times and still remember all the songs. I havent seen it recently but will buy the video. My congratulations to the moviemakers for making such a classic. Some memorable scenes were dancing in central park, the harmonia gardens, the parade, and the finale when Dolly gets married. The scene was truly wonderful, the church, the lake, the distant mountains and the singing.
My teenagers, loved seeing this movie. We love all sorts of music in our home, and loved this musical.
Always a great amount of enjoyment had whenever I watch this movie. Michael Crawford is cast perfectly as Cornelius Hackel.
I watched this movie not knowing a thing about the past of the musical and Barbara Streisand fit the part perfectly. I went back and researched the musical finding that old lady-sounding woman what was her name... Carol Channing! The main spectacularness of the movie is Barbara's gorgeous voice! I can't think of anyone more fit to the part. Perfect everything (except Walter Mathu can't sing)
