We gave it an A+

Purists may long for the sparer Broadway version, but for the movie, Barbra Streisand put in the performance of her life. On Funny Girl, the moodier ”People” is to die for, ”Don’t Rain on My Parade” defines the word showstopper, and ”My Man” takes a potentially showy arrangement and makes it effortlessly divine. A+
