The Owl and the Pussycat Movie Review

In the grand tradition of movies like The Odd Couple, Butterflies are Free, and Barefoot in the Park comes The Owl and the Pussycat, with a mixmatched pair of roommates trying to make a go of it in a tiny New York City apartment. Like virtually all of these 1970s comedies, after frustration comes understanding -- and George Segal's failed writer combined with Barbra Streisand's fetish hooker makes for a lot of frustration indeed. After an hour of solid comedy, though, Pussycat meanders into the melodrama of a less-than-believable romance. Alas, life in the Big Apple is always complicated.
