Critic Reviews for Butterflies Are Free
Hawn, funny and touching, is a delight throughout and Heckart gets a film role that enables her to display versatility.
A piece of (barely) stage-adapted nonsense, scripted by Leonard Gershe from his own play, about blind-boy-meets-emotionally-immature girl and how his mum brings them together. With some funny lines from Goldie Hawn and little else.
Leonard Gershe's Broadway comedy recycled as a movie with the density of Jell-o.
Although the emotional conflicts are a bit too neatly settled at the story's conclusion, Albert, Hawn, and Heckart make it all seem believable.
An interesting film about love, blindness and the inherent bias in both.
Audience Reviews for Butterflies Are Free
A sweet romance that's quite entertaining and fun.
Witty and unpredictable but the whole storyline won't crypt its conservative and almost liberal views from another era.The universal "quality" of the play isn't remembered for its general causes of freedom rather Eckhart on a subtle performance and a noisy-juicy Goldie Hawn.If you exclude the typical ending,it's a feel-good movie and not a pompous "relationship movie" like Closer by Nichols.
Here's an obscure one. An early Goldie Hawn movie (I think she is underestimated). Edward Albert plays an inspiring young blind man. I like it because it was originally a stage play and it was surprisingly modern and still relevant. I share the sentiments of the young characters wanting their funeral to be a celebration. A good little romantic comedy.
