Synopsis


The Goodbye Girl
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. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    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!

    This is Richard Dreyfuss' seminal performance and the chemistry between he and Marsha Mason is exceptional. Stir in a fine supporting performance from prodigy Quinn Cummings and you have a very satisfying picture. It holds up well despite a few dated cultural references. And it was a very agreeable price.
