Funny Girl is Ben-Hur with songs? Huh? Does that mean it got too much adoration when released and now doesn't hold up? Geez, way to dismiss a film that inarguably contains one of the greatest musical/comedy performances in movie history. Are you implying that Streisand's performance equates with Heston's? Funny Girl has its draggy moments, but it also contains some of Wyler's nicest late work and he surely deserves kudos for presenting an important new star with the same style he employed for Roman Holiday.
