The movie stares Barbara Streisand as Rose Morgan a lonely, single, low self

esteemed woman who lives with her domineering mother Hannah Morgan played by

Lauren Becall in New York. Jeff Bridges who plays Gregory Larkin a math

instructor at Columbia University is a man in search of the perfect woman who is

not interested in sex but only companship. Greg places a personal ad in a

singles paper and receives enormous response. He reviews the responses to his

ad and decides on a response that featured Rose. Greg calls the number on the

response and a woman answers the phone who is Roses sister Claire. Claire

explains to Greg that she responded to the ad without Roses consent and that

Rose is not a women of great beauty. Greg explains that he is not in search of a
