Barefoot in the Park

Adapted from the play written by Neil Simon, Barefoot in the Park is only adequately funny but usually entertaining. Robert Redford and Jane Fonda play a newly-wed couple who moves into a very 'inconvenient' apartment, with a dysfunctional radiator, a leaky closet, a hole in the ceiling, its on the very top floor (which results in a very long climb), and the building's full of lunatics. These things lead to a marriage problem and a very strange clash between Fonda's aging mother, played by Mildred Natwick, and a very unique man who lives in the attic. The essence of the film is low key, but should appeal to Simon fans.
