Overview

Goodbye Girl (1977)

Herbert Ross' charming romantic comedy The Goodbye Girl comes to DVD with a pair of images. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is preferable to the standard full-frame 1.33:1 image. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are accessible in both of those languages as well. There are no supplemental materials on this release. Despite the lack of extras, the disc is worth looking at, since Richard Dreyfuss' performance (which made him the youngest Best Actor Oscar winner in history) is just as winning on the small screen as it was in theaters.

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.
