User Reviews

One of the best romantic comedies of our time.
10 April 2002 | by (Bronx, NY) – See all my reviews

Robert Redford and Jane Fonda are at their best in this fast-paced, movie version of Neil Simon's BAREFOOT IN THE PARK. They show you what happens when the honeymoon's over and "real life" begins. The interaction between Redford and Fonda is superb and flows smoothly, the acting is brilliant and shines brightly throughout the movie. It's like witnessing perfection. Even the supporting cast is marvelous with their humorous dialog and perfect timing. What I like best is the characters will have you laughing without even half trying. Everything is put together so splendidly. This is one of those movies where everything comes together: the actors, the writing, the scenery, the situation, and of course the performances.

In my opinion BAREFOOT IN THE PARK is a rare gem that should be seen by all.
