Barefoot in the ParkDirector: Gene Saks
Based on the hit Broadway play by Neil Simon, who made his screenwriting debut with this adaptation, Barefoot In The Park follows the lives of newlyweds Paul (Robert Redford) and Corie Bratter (Jane Fonda) as they adjust to married life in a tiny Greenwich Village apartment. Paul is a buttoned-down, straight-arrow lawyer who's wound a little too tight, while Corie is an effervescent free spirit who won't let anything disturb her romantic bliss. Aside from the five-flight climb and the hole in their skylight, the Bratters must also contend with eccentric upstairs neighbor Victor Velasco (Charles Boyer), who must go through their apartment to get to his. Corie hatches a plot to get her mother (Mildred Natwick) together with Mr. Velasco, but the entire evening goes awry and even casts doubt on the viability of the Bratters' new marriage, as Corie tries unsuccessfully to loosen Paul up. All ends well, however, and Fonda and Redford are full of youthful appeal in this light domestic comedy.

Barefoot in the Park is my favorite Jane Fonda movie! It is a very sweet charming movie and also very funny!
Saw the movie for the first time about 15 years ago as a teen. Loved it! Jane Fonda and Robert Redford were brilliant. Buying a copy for myself so I can watch it whenever I feel down. A wonderful feel-good movie.
This is a great movie! Robert Redford and Jane Fonda are newlyweds just starting out in New York. They are great but Mildred Natwick steals the show as Jane's mother. The usual suave Charles Boyer is outstanding in a comedic role as an aging casanova wooing Mildred Natwick. Herb Edelman adds to the laughs as the telephone man. I have seen this movie many times and never tire of it.
Robert Redford and Jane Fonda were a delight in this movie. Robert Redford as a conservative groom and Jane Fonda as a freethinking bride, trying to adjust to married life, bring about some really laughable moments. Just imagine the fun of trying to get someone to try new things with strangers or having your home as part of the escape route to the roof of your building. This was just "wild" to say the least, yet you may enjoy the "ride" of married life with these two characters. A fun storyline and vivid characters make this an entertaining DVD.
