Marsha Mason is known as "The Goodbye Girl" because of all the live-in boyfriends who have said ta-ta to her in the past few years. A former Broadway chorus dancer, the divorced Mason lives in the Manhattan apartment of her latest lost love with her daughter Quinn Cummings. Enter arrogant actor Richard Dreyfuss, who has subleased the apartment from Mason's former boyfriend and moves in bag and baggage in the middle of the night. Dreyfuss and Mason spend the next few weeks getting in each other's way and fighting like cats and dogs. The wind is taken out of Dreyfuss' sails when he opens in a production of Richard III, which has been sabotaged by the director (Paul Benjamin), who insists that Dreyfuss portrays Richard as a hip-swinging homosexual. The play closes after one performance, and the once-overconfident Dreyfuss goes on a self-pitying drunken binge. Touched by his vulnerability, Mason begins falling in love with Dreyfuss despite her lousy track record with men. Richard Dreyfuss became the youngest ever "Best Actor" Oscar winner as a result of his performance.

The Goodbye Girl is a cute movie! I first saw it in a movie theater when I was 11 years old and then watched it several more times when it was shown on HBO. Marsha Mason, Richard Dreyfuss and Quinn Cummings are all superb!

Richard Dreyfuss has never been one of my favorite actors, and I wouldn't know Marsha Mason if I tripped over her, so imagine my surprise when they ended up making one of the best romantic comedies I've seen in years. Working from an outstanding script by Neil Simon "Mason's husband at the time", Dreyfuss and Mason make for a truly 'odd' couple: she's a bitter single mom forced to share her apartment with an eccentric actor from Chicago. Of course, circumstance and her worldly-wise, smart-aleck daughter "Quinn Cummings" conspire to bring them together. To its credit, ''The Goodbye Girl'' manages to remain firmly out of the upscale urban fairytale realm so many other romantic comedies stumble into. If there's any shortcoming, it's that the Marsha Mason character's change from unlikeable to a sympathetic love interest is really abrupt. Keep an eye out for Paul Benedict -- the neighbor on ''The Jeffersons'' -- as Elliot's director with a rather unique take on ''Richard III.'' Definitely worth a look.

Keeping in mind that I don't own the film on DVD (I taped it off HBO not too long ago), let me just say this is one of the best romantic comedies I ever saw. Neil Simon's screenplay is hilarious, touching and witty all at the same time, the cast sparkles (Dreyfuss deserved that Oscar, IMHO), and you can't help but feel joyous all over. Why can't we have more movies like this, rather than the "comedies" we get from people like Rob Schneider (keeping in mind, once again, that I'll never see his movies on a bet)? And teens: if you think Rob Schneider is funny, I dare you to watch the scene in this film where Elliot does Richard III as a flaming homosexual.
