Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

The Goodbye Girl (1977)

HERBERT ROSS

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBB.  USA, 1977.  Warner Bros., Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Rastar Pictures.  Screenplay by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by . Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  Academy Awards 1977.  Golden Globe Awards 1977.  

Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason in The Goodbye Girl. Both were nominated for Oscars for their performances, with Dreyfuss winning Best Actor.

Marsha Mason plays a single mother who moves into a new apartment only to find that the previous tenants (Richard Dreyfuss) refuses to move. Guess what happens after they’ve lived together for a while? I’m sure it was the romantic comedy of the season upon first release, but I’ve been taken for better rides since (and none of them were written by Neil Simon). Quinn Cummings is charming as Mason’s 12-going-on-35 daughter.
