Barbarella Reviews

Page 1 of 3
Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...like a lot of truly terrible things from the '60s, Barbarella has acquired the patina of the cult classic, which means that as the cultural context has changed we are able to enjoy it for reasons other than those intended by the filmmakers

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

A Flash Gordon-meets-Oz kitsch-fest stripping women's sexual revolution down to voyeuristic spectacle, flimsily dressed in cheap, see-through, psychedelic B-movie garb. Vadim imbues most scenes with a faux-arty lethargy that slumps into stiltedness.

Despite a certain amount of production dash and polish and a few silly-funny lines of dialog, Barbarella isn't very much of a film.

Without Jane Fonda, there isn't much to talk about. Yet with her, the film is enjoyable to watch, not only because she is so appealing to look at but because she has such a flair for the role.

It is an extravagant exercise in bad taste and camp. While it tries to intentionally funny, some of the humour merely falls flat on its face.

Not that the film itself isn't funny, it most definitely is, but it is a formless mass of crazy one-liners and ridiculous situations.

An awful film, certainly, but also undeniably watchable.

Throughout the movie, there is the assumption that just mentioning a thing (sex, politics, religion) makes it funny and that mentioning it in some offensive context makes it funnier.

The film is ugly on so many levels -- from art direction to human values -- that it's hard to know where to begin.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Most of this is soft-core nonsense, but snappy dialogue and design -- as well as the striptease routine that Fonda performs behind the opening credits -- have made it something of a cult favorite.

Roger Vadim's ultra-kitsch sci-fi classic somehow improves with age.

Campy sci-fi cult classic features violence, nudity.

Why did Jane make a film like this? Even she does not know herself.

"Barbarella" is the 1968 sci-fi that made Jane Fonda a household name. The opening credits feature a striptease that takes Fonda from a cumbersome space suit to her birthday suit. Her sex kitten looks were enough to drive young men crazy.

Cheesy, campy, sexy and frequently quite entertaining ... at least in a purely visual sense!

A valentine to the soft-core lover in all of us, and proof that on some levels, Jane Fonda will never be taken seriously.

Barbarella couldn't exist in any era but the 1960s and its delightful over-the-top qualities find an ideal expression in the ridiculous excesses of the time.
