OK comedy pairs Matthau and Hawn.
Audience Reviews for Cactus Flower
A film that has so many weird things about it,
Ingrid Bergman is in an America sex comedy.
Goldie Hawn won an Oscar for her roll.
A 49 year old Walter Matthau is cast as a cad who's banging Goldie Hawn.
and it was remade as the Adam Sandler film "Just Go With It"
This sex farce from the late 60's involves both the war between the sexes and the generation gap. Matthau is a swinging dentist suddenly set on marriage to Hawn (still in her bubbly Laugh-In ditz days) until the frump nurse who works for him begins to blossom. It's Ingrid's movie from there. Dated, sure, like when all go to a club and "I'm A Believer" is the slow jam, but that kinda adds to the charm of this star vehicle comedy of errors.More
On the surface this is just another romantic comedy, but if you see it, the characters are interesting and played by great actors, and the movie is very funny too. I liked it. Overall, it's predictable, but charming.More
Walter Matthau is...Walter Matthau, and Goldie Hawn is his ditzy, suicidal fling who is slowly falling back into her demographic. Along for the ride is the still sparkling Ingrid Bergman, now older, wiser, and complacent to play along with Matthau's strange fixation. It was solid performance wise, but it reeked of cultural impact and changing to be "hip."More
