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.
If you love a SMART love story with great, well fleshed-out characters with a brain who sometimes make you laugh and sometimes make you cry, watch this. This movie is a gem that today’s millennials have probably never heard of but SHOULD as I know a lot of them would appreciate it. They would probably relate more than some people back then. This is one of my top three favorite films EVER! And the soundtrack is still beautiful. Thank you for selling this classic winner Best Buy on Blu-ray!
Great movie, I've loved since I saw it in the '70s
Great movie and great performances and wow does it ever look great in blu ray. A funny and often tender movie really speaks to real life love and you can't get a better cast then this. Richard Dreyfus has been one of my favorite actors ever since I saw this! A must see for those that like romantic comedies!
