Critic Reviews for Cactus Flower
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.
Audience Reviews for Cactus Flower
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.
