Storyline

New Yorkers Paul Bratter and Corie Bratter née Banks have just gotten married. He is a stuffed shirt just starting his career as a lawyer. She is an independently minded free spirit who prides herself on doing the illogical purely out of a sense of adventure, such acts as walking through Washington Square Park barefoot when it's 17°F outside. Their six day honeymoon at the Plaza Hotel shows that they can get to know each other easily in the biblical sense. But they will see if they can get to know each other in their real life when they move into their first apartment, a cozy (in other words, small), slightly broken down top floor unit in a five story walk-up. While Corie joyfully bounds up and down the stairs, Paul, always winded after the fact, hates the fact of having to walk up the six flights of stairs, if one includes the stairs that comprise the outside front stoop. Beyond the issues with the apartment itself, Paul and Corie will have to deal with an odd assortment of neighbors... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Robert Redford had effectively given up acting prior to filming this. Disillusioned after the relative failure of "This Property is Condemned" " The Chase" and " Inside Daisy Clover ", he quit Hollywood and spent a year travelling around Spain and Greece. It was only after Paramount threatened to sue him over certain " contractual obligations " that he returned home to star in this. See more »

Goofs

When Corie goes into the bedroom, slamming the door, something rolls out on to the landing. In later shots, the object is gone. See more »

User Reviews

One of the best romantic comedies of our time.
10 April 2002 | by kentraginSee 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.
