Barefoot in the Park (1967)

One of the first adaptations of a Neil Simon play, this dated bonbon features exuberant drama queen Jane Fonda and staid pragmatist Robert Redford as fresh-faced newlyweds who can’t keep their hands off each other (goosing bottoms in elevators, hanging ”do not disturb” signs on hotel doorknobs for days on end, and so on). But the honeymoon ends, and the comedy ostensibly begins, when they move into a tiny, five-flight Manhattan walk-up (which is refreshingly—and realistically—tiny compared to the bountiful dwellings shown in Friends and Seinfeld). Barefoot in the Park has no other relation at all to reality, but it’s cute as a button.
