The stars of the classic screwball comedy "What's Up, Doc?" -- Academy Award-winning superstar Barbra Streisand ("Funny Girl," "The Prince of Tides") and Ryan O'Neal ("Love Story," "Irreconcilable Differences") -- reunite in this fancy footwork romantic comedy about a bankrupt perfume manufacturer who finds her one remaining asset is the ownership of a has-been boxer. It's a love match between the boxer and his new owner as they spar both in and outside of the ring. Co-starring Richard Lawson ("Poltergeist," "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd") and Ernie Hudson ("The Crow," "Ghostbusters").
