This clip from The Owl and the Pussycat is another movie my Dad made me watch. I remember being 9-ish and creeping out of my bed to spy on my Dad watching tv late at night. A couple nights he would let me stay up with him and watch a movie. I remember how proud he was when there were funny parts. Like it was all worth the wait. I think I just liked that I was staying up late with Dad. I was part of the exclusive stay up late club with Dad. Dad had a never ending stream of classic movies that I had to watch. This is definitely right up there with One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Shining, Cannery Row and Jaws to name a few of his favorites.
This movie is hilarious. Segal plays the part of a stuffy author and Streisand plays a prostitute that lives next door to him. I love how Streisand makes Segal stay up all night because she can't sleep. I forgot why, but she ends up at his apartment for the night and just drives him crazy. I love when she says "Hey Tinka Bell!". It reminds me how my friend Jenny and I love to annoy our friend Adam. People like Adam don't want you to know that they love the attention.
