Critics Consensus

Barefoot in the Park may strike some modern viewers as dated, but what it lacks in timeliness, it more than makes up with the effervescent chemistry between its stars.

    An excellent comedy with an excellent cast and an excellent story. The story is actually more like a story for a drama, but all the funny things that happen make it a comedy, it's brilliant. This movie is fun, I really like it.

    finally a film where i can stand robert redford. decent effort at a comedy. the best part was played by charles boyer as victor velasco. there were some genuinely funny moments and it wasn't laughs all the way through. there was some actual story in there too!

    Well I rather watch stupid stoner comedies than watching this kind of romantic comedies

    Jane Fonda really intrigues me as an actress. She's so obnoxious and noisy and loud and annoying it's no wonder Robert Redford couldn't tolerate her towards the end. But he eventually returns, drunk and barefoot in the park, because there's something truly compelling about her ... I wouldn't call it charm, more like spunk. This is a surprisingly vulgar movie, what with the time period and genre, and really gives you a picture of what it was like to live in the 1960s, slightly exaggerated of course.
