"Barefoot in the Park" is a masterpiece of comedy by one of the greatest comedic writers of all time, Neil Simon. I thoroughly enjoy his eccentric characters and overly absurd plot twists and silly situations. Jane Fonda and Robert Redford have some of the best chemistry on screen I've seen in any movie, despite the era it was made in. The entire movie I was laughing my trash off. Good fun for everyone!

Robert Redford is great as the new husband trying to start a career and a marriage simultaneously. Jane Fonda is superb as the young wife whose lust for life is contagious and a bit overwhelming. But my favorite is Mildred Natwick as the mother who endures a wild night with the newlyweds and their eccentric neighbor. The movie is fraught with excellent dialog and great comedic timing, and the characters are developed extremely well. It feels more like a play than a film when all is said and done.
