This truly feels like some senior thesis in film editing.  I mean kudos to her, it will def be interesting if it gets a reedited release or an added bonus to a future blu ray release Or if this will be like a fanedit.

Brolin confused Funny Girl with The Way We Were. Very Sloppy reporting, click bait nonsense.  The shocker from this Club Random interview with Bill Mahr is that Brolin is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist,(inside job) and believe JFK JR was assassinated.. (bomb on his plane).  Vaccine skeptic..shocking stuff.. listen for yourself.. it starts about 44:00 minutes in.

This doesn't make any sense. She doesn't own the rights to the film.

Stars cannot decide they want to reedit their performances today or 50 years later.......

Not true.  Hubby James Brolin confused "Funny Girl" with "The Way We Were," which is coming out on blu-ray next week with restored scenes.

The Way We Were does have a very bizarre third act.

It seems hubby is getting up in years, so we make allowances for that.  I'm sure that BS keeps him on a short leash most of the time, but things happen.

How does it being The Way We Were make it any better? She did not write or direct that either. Sydney Pollack and Arthur Laurents did. Who does she think she is? Talk about ego.

Brolin is referring to the new alternate cut of THE WAY WE WERE which will also be included in the upcoming 4K UHD/Blu-ray 50th anniversary edition of the film to be released on November 21st.

In close collaboration with Barbra Streisand and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Sydney Pollack's classic film, Columbia Pictures presents a new extended version of THE WAY WE WERE — restoring two important scenes where the love story and the political story come together — alongside the original theatrical version.
 

  • Featuring both the original 118-minute Theatrical Version and an all-new 123-minute Extended Version
  • Both versions remastered in 4K resolution from the original camera negative
  • Dolby Vision/HDR presentation of the film
  • Presented in high definition on the Blu-ray
  • 5.1 audio + original mono for the Theatrical Version
  • Director's Commentary (Theatrical Version Only)
  • Making-Of Documentary "Looking Back"
  • Theatrical Trailer

There is some backlash in film circles regarding her decision to do this. Pollack felt the scenes in question were unnecessary, but Streisand always disagreed with his decision to cut them out.  Many feel she is taking advantage of the fact that he has passed on by doing this against his original artistic vision.

How would Barbra feel about Nick Nolte doing an extended rejigged version of The Prince of Tides`?

This is a great opportunity for people to see these cut scenes as it explains the reason behind the breakup of both characters.  In the theatrical version, there's a gap in the storyline with no real explanation given.  With these scenes being restored, it makes more sense.  She's not changing anything to the original version.  

The forthcoming blu-ray with have both versions on it.  The original theatrical cut, and the extended cut. That way people can decide which version they want to view.  Many films being released on dvd or blu-ray will have an extended cut on it.

I consider only extended cuts supervised by the actual director to be valid. These extra scenes could easily be included as a bonus labelled "deleted scenes" instead. Sydney Pollack won a Best Director Oscar, he was not a nobody. His work should be respected as it is. Barbra wouldn't get away with this if it had been a Spielberg or Scorsese picture.

Nobody said Sidney was a nobody, and nobody is disrespecting anyone.  The head of Columbia Pictures gave the green light on the project.

His work is being disrespected. Don't get me wrong, I still love Barbra, but she obviously has a very high opinion of herself. She has no artistic authority to do this, this was not her project. It's like if Mandy Patinkin recut Yentl because he thought it was wrong he never got a song. Which it was. That's what Barbra decided, though, and that's how itt should stay.

I'm surprised, as this is the rare instance where tinkering makes sense. Without the scene in question (or as I understand it, the complete scene, part of which was left in), the movie's ending doesn't really make sense. Or at least doesn't make clear how the two strands of the plot are intertwined. Without it, the blacklist stuff seems a rather pointless but lengthy intrusion.

Arthur Laurents hated the cuts--considered they ruined the movie. So now you have the Pollack cut and the Laurents cut. Win, win.

Arthur Laurents hated everything (and everyone).

People have such a huge chip on their shoulders where Streisand is concerned.  Based on these arguments, there shouldn't be any recut films issued where the director has passed away.  Streisand and Pollack were close friends.  Columbia owns the picture.  She wouldn't be involved at all if the OWNER of the picture didn't want her to be and there wouldn't be a longer version of the film being released if the OWNER didn't want to release one.  There are two scenes being spliced in totaling about five minutes.  And the original version is being released on the same disc.  Everyone relax.

I am relaxed. Relaxed people can have opinions. It's not the end of the world as we know it, I realise that. I just believe the only owner of a work of art is the artist. The Met might own a Monet or a Rembrandt, that doesn't mean they get to paint in their own little preferences.

Hyperbole--but then Laurents is the kind of person to inspire hyperbolic reactions. OP was complaining about "disrespect" to Laurents and Pollack. I'm pointing out that this new Blu-ray will be the opposite of that.
