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

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.

Terry Southern's dialogue occasionally sparkles, and the imaginative designs, as shot by Claude Renoir, look really splendid.

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.

It's fun in a 'What were they smoking?' kind of way.

Fonda looks sensational and glides through this romp like a dazed, ripe-to-the- touch innocent.
