Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been waiting for this in ANY format since it first aired on TV in 1985. I wondered how Barry as an actor would be, but found myself so caught up in the story, I forgot to critique his performance! He tugs at my heartstrings when he stands in a darkened street and sings "Who Needs To Dream". His energy, vitality and charisma shine in "Sweet Heaven I'm In Love Again" and in "Copacabana". I loved Lola, sprawled on the piano, singing "Man Wanted".
As I've discovered over the years, Barry LIVE doing ANYTHING enervates me, has me singing along, and jumping up to dance! You can't go wrong buying this DVD!"
Great Musical

"This movie is great. This movie was broadcast on CBS originally in December 1985. Barry,Bruce and Jack outdid themselves on the songs and score. This movie runs a gambit of emotions. It is set in the 40's right after WWII. Two people meet,begin to fall in love, then interrupted by a third party. Lots of drama, action, romance and you never know what will happen next. A must have for any fan of Barry Manilow. This was his first acting experience as Tony and he is terrific. Of course, I am extremely biased. Friends of mine who watched it even though they were not fans, loved it. Who knew that Annette O'Toole could sing? She also is a wonderful dancer. Joseph Bolonga is wonderful as Rico. Great supporting parts done by Ernie Sabella as Mr. Gropper the owner of the Copa and Estelle Getty as Tony's mother."
Wonderful performances

"Both Barry Manilow and Annette O'Toole do a wonderful acting job. The music is, of course, incredible. The video quality of the DVD is not as great as I would have expected but it's still good. If you're a Barry Manilow fan you will love this DVD, especially Who Needs To Dream and I'm In Love Again."
Copacabana on DVD is Great, but could be so much better!

"I have wanted this movie for oh so many years!!! Ever since I first saw it on television. I love all the songs! It a cutesy movie with a thin plot, but the music is what Barry is known for and it will have you humming along! I wish there would have been some special features on this DVd is pretty bare, but after waiting all these years, I AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT!!! Buy this one, you won't regret it!"
