Critic Reviews for Barefoot

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (12)

The gradual revelation that there's more to Daisy than meets the eye is no great surprise, but it does at least negate - too late! - some of the more troubling subtext.

It's all thoroughly, intentionally lightweight, and the film's final 10 minutes is a rush of highly unlikely smiley face resolutions. Still, Wood somehow makes it work as well as it can.

He's a rebellious trust-funder who specializes in strip clubs, one-night stands and gambling debts. She's a possibly schizophrenic mental patient raised in near-captivity by an abusive mother. How could these two kids not fall in love?

Scott Speedman and Evan Rachel Wood would have been better off doing a YouTube video together where they simply make goo-goo eyes at one another than co-starring in a featherweight trifle like "Barefoot".

Really, the emotionally ill have enough stigmas to contend with. They don't need the patronizing-yet-popular movie one of "They're just like us - only, you know, more innocent."

A sorry throwback to sentimental 1960s movies -- the ones in which an offbeat woman repairs the soul of an emotionally clueless man.

Audience Reviews for Barefoot

Charming and enjoyable. There's nothing remarkable about this romantic comedy and sometimes, that's just what it needs to be perfect.

Charming and enjoyable love story if you overlook the numerous and totally ridiculous plot shortcomings and that the two lead characters are both really messed up.

Evan Rachel Wood and Scott Speedman star in the quirky romantic comedy Barefoot. The story follows an L.A. hustler who pairs up with a young woman who's escaped from a mental hospital and takes her to his brother's wedding, hoping to pass her off as his girlfriend. Wood gives an incredible performance that really captures the sweetness and naiveté of the character. And her chemistry with Speedman is quite good, as the two come off as a charming (and eccentric) couple. Additionally, the film has a nice message about loving unconditionally. A rather underrated indie comedy, Barefoot is wonderfully entertaining and fun.
