The trouble with rock 'n' roll in A Star Is Born is that there isn't any. The soundtrack is filled with homogenized harmonics passing for rock, but not a single song is good enough even to be counterfeit. Full Review

A transistorized remake, louder than ever, but very small in terms of its being about anything whatsoever. Full Review

Barbra Streisand's fantastic singing voice shows to the best advantage her incredible talent. The movie falls short of greatness, but it compares more than favorably not only with the usual concert film but also with the current love stories on film. Full Review

This version vaunts its modernity by vulgarising everything in sight. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- Too often director Frank Pierson appears to be allowing his players to act the scene as they think fit rather than under his guidance. Full Review

This new version follows the previous three in its broad outline, but there are differences. To make room for a number of songs, characterization has suffered. Full Review

A Star Is Born presents Streisand in an appealing and sympathetic role, and Kristofferson provides the perfect balance. In his toughest dramatic assignment to date, he is exceptionally good. Full Review
