In The Mirror Has Two Faces Barbra Streisand stars as Rose a lecturer in Romantic Literature with no romance of her own. Jeff Bridges longs for a platonic partner he can respect yet maintain a safe physical distance from. Set up by Rose's sister they meet and intellectual sparks fly and they soon find unexpected passion getting in their way in this delightfully sparkling comedy.
Barbra Streisand's self-absorbed remake of a 1958 French film stars Jeff Bridges as a college professor tired of sexual politics. He makes a deal with a dowdy colleague (Streisand) that they provide companionship for one another, with no thought of getting into bed. She agrees but soon becomes frustrated, the agreement only reinforcing her unfulfilled desire to have a complete relationship with a man. Mimi Rogers is on hand as Babs's striking sister, and Lauren Bacall received an Oscar nomination for her role as the heroine's selfish mother. The Mirror Has Two Faces is OK, but it becomes an irritating vanity piece for Streisand (who directed as well as stars). Her character constantly gazes upon her own reflection and is told at least a dozen times, one way or another, just how attractive she is. One wants to shout out, we get it already--you're pretty! --Tom Keogh
