Movie Summary

Director:
Howard Zieff
Released:
1979
Rating:
PG
The Main Event reignites the sparkling chemistry between "What's Up, Doc?" co-stars Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal in a romantic comedy about opposites finding their match inside the boxing ring. Perfume executive Hillary Kramer (Barbra Streisand) goes from wealthy to bankrupt overnight when her accountant takes off for South America with all but one of her assets. She still owns a contract for boxer Eddie "Kid Natural" Scanlon (Ryan O'Neal), who has not had a fight in years. The determined Hillary wants to set up a lucrative bout with Eddie's former nemesis, but both Eddie and his skeptical manager, Percy (Whitman Mayo), think a fight will kill him. Undeterred, Hillary pushes Eddie through training and preliminary matches, but starts to realize she may want more than money from this stubborn fighter. With a witty script and plenty of sexual tension, this 1979 comedy provides Streisand and O'Neal the perfect platform for sparring and flirting their way to romance.
