Synopsis:
Can a penniless perfume magnate (Barbara Streisand) find happiness managing the career of a has-been prizefighter (Ryan O'Neal)? This screwball comedy answers that question... pow! Right to the kisser!
The two stars reignite their What's Up, Doc? chemistry seven years later, trading the script's verbal punches with the panache of the great '30s and '40s romantic duos. Director Howard Zieff sets them sparring all over Los Angeles, including two boxing landmarks, the Main Street Gym and the Olympic Auditorium. But it's not boxing but the mating of love and laughter that's the main event of The Main Event. And it's nice to feel the knockout punch of movie magic again.
