The plot [from the play by Abe Burrows, based on a French play by Barillet & Gredy] is minimal and the lines are somewhat stilted and hollow, but if the direction was tighter and the mood kept light and airy it might have worked.
It comes as a pleasing jolt to find the youngster, Goldie Hawn, at the apex of the triangle, not only beautifully holding her own with the two veteran stars but also enhancing the content and flavor of the movie.
It really is Matthau, Miss Bergman and (with a marvelously expressive face) Miss Hawn who make "Cactus Flower" a success.
this is a 1969 romantic comedy with style, wit, charm, sophistication, and several delightful moments of women's lib in action. It also happens to be a great time capsule of late '60s fashion, music, and culture in Manhattan.
A misfire despite the presence of many of filmdom's best talents.
A sometimes forgettable romantic comedy.
OK comedy pairs Matthau and Hawn.
Based on a French farce, first done as a Broadway play, this mildly amusing, highly theatrical comedy benefits from its star power: Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman (taking over Lauren Bacall's stage role) and best of all Glodie Hawn.
Doggone it I did laugh, right out loud, too, and I have to confess it.
Quite amusing, but Matthau and Bergman don't really match and for once it is Hawn, in her debut feature, who saves the day.
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.
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.
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."
