Movie Reviews

The Cast Really Shines In Simon's Comedy
Gary F. Taylor | Biloxi, MS USA | 05/21/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm no great fan of Neil Simon, but this neat adaption of his popular stage success BAREFOOT IN THE PARK brings a smile to my face--and it probably will yours too. The story is quite simple: newlyweds Robert Redford and Jane Fonda have moved into a New York apartment building peopled by eccentrics... and their own tiny apartment has hole in the skylight, no heat, and you have walk up five flights to get there. Redford, a rather stodgy conservative, takes a dim view of the whole thing; Fonda, who has an excessively happy-go-lucky disposition, thinks everything is great fun. Needless to say, they're soon going at it hammer and tongs.This is a very contrived, sitcom-ish film, but the cast carries it well. Although Redford has remained a great star for forty years, his films have been very hit or miss; here he is well cast, and he plays expertly. During this period of her career, Fonda was very much the perky girl-next-door with a slight sex-kitten spin, and she too is fun to watch. But the real winners here are Charles Boyer, as their eccentric neighbor, and particularly Mildred Natwick, as Fonda's mother. Natwick excelled at playing disconcerted matrons, and this is perhaps the best of the many fine, memorable variations of the type she offered during her long and very enjoyable career. BAREFOOT IN THE PARK won't go down in history as a great film, nor will change your point of view. But it is tremendously good fun, a film I've enjoyed every time time I've seen it--and that is a good many. Recommended; you'll enjoy it."

"Robert Redford and Jane Fonda are newlyweds in this quirky comedy. They play well off each other with him playing straight serious to her funny spontaneity. This is a treasure that you will want to view over and over again.

"Barefoot In the Park - Paramount, 1967 Jane Fonda is adorable in this Broadway hit play by Neil Simon converted to the big screen. Fonda and Robert Redford are Corie and Paul Bratter, newlyweds adjusting to their newfound married life. Corie is carefree and vibrant, whereas her husband, Paul, is prim and proper. Together, they make a dazzling team that answers the question: Do opposites attract? The script rarely leaves their hilariously small apartment, located on the fifth floor of a building with no elevator. This adds for some laughable moments in the movie as visitors have to walk up five flights of stairs to reach them. Mildred Natwick plays Corrie's concerned mother, and she livens up the script with her dry wit and humorous lines. This is a wonderful romantic comedy that will lift your spirits. I just wish the movie was a bit longer. . . I would have loved to see what became of this lovable couple"
Fonda & Redford - One of Hollywoods greatest pairings!

"This movie is, in a word, FUNNY! The casting and the dialogue are simply phenomenal. If you don't laugh at this movie, you are a humorless person. Mildred Natwick was deservedly nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar that year (losing to Estelle Parsons for "Bonnie & Clyde") for recreating her stage role (along with Redford) as Jane Fonda's mother and is brilliant! One of Neil Simon's absolute classics. Best Moment: Every staircase scene!"
