I thought this was going to be one of those goofy romantic comedies but it wasn't. It's a sweet film. Sometimes we meet people who change our lives forever...in a good way.

this was a pretty great film, actually. sure, it has its flaws. but its merit outshine them completely. i was happily surprised, especially after reading some reviews. if you liked Amelie, Waitress, Eagle vs. Shark, etc., then i'm betting that this will probably be your sugared doughnut.

This was a very sweet and charming movie. Scott Speedman, Evan Rachel Wood and J.K. Simmons are all absolutely fantastic in this. Some very endearing and touching moments as well as hilarious ones. Not your typical romantic comedy...but that is a very good thing :) I especially loved how it included the topic of mental health in this. I watched this twice in a day. Yup, that happened.

He had the freedom to do everything he had a passion for, but he was miserable. The girl that was not influenced by our society due to isolation was pure in heart, strange for the world, but able to touch his heart without sexual attraction, profanity, or shrewdness. This gives a message that our world is wrong with too many miserable and sick individuals. It is a romantic story with wonderful messages about our screwd world.

This is a fun little film, with more substance and heart than your typical rom com. It's a lovely date movie, perfect for the modern romantic. If you liked Waitress and Amelie then this is a film for you.

A warm loving romance for hopeless romantics! Just like having a cup of warm chocolate with marshmallows on a cold freezing day.

Jay (Scott Speedman) likes to drink, gamble, speed, smoke, and go to strip clubs. Unfortunately, even with an MBA he isn't much good at it. On parole, he lands a gig mopping floors at a mental institution. He also has outstanding gambling debts. His family has money as he goes to New Orleans (from LA) to his brother's wedding. Pressed for a date, he opts to take with him newly escaped mental patient Daisy (Evan Rachel Wood). She is child like and honest. She will say anything to anyone and needs to be protected, the type of girl guys easily fall in love with. She doesn't like shoes.

This is another quirky romantic comedy. We have entered a downward spiral where each romantic comedy has to be odder than the previous one, regardless how inane the ending or impossible the situation or how awkward they make us feel while trying to make us feel good.

Evan Rachel Ward was delightful in her role, although her scripted character was not convincingly real. Jay is a guy whose character is difficult to connect with, oh poor little rich kid.

The film makes for a good rental for lovers of quirky romantic comedies. 3 1/2 stars

No sex or nudity, although there are some strip joint scenes, they are in bikinis. I don't recall any F-bombs although rated PG-13 for "brief strong language." I may have missed it.

Underwhelming English language remake of a hit German language romantic comedy. A ne'er do well with gambling debts who works in a mental institution as part of his probation saves a beautiful and odd young woman who has recently been committed--in the German version it was from a suicide attempt but in this version it's from the attentions of a perv orderly. In both versions she follows him out of the hospital without his knowledge and he ends up taking her to his brother's wedding where he plans to ask his wealthy dad for money to pay off those debts.

The original movie allowed some time for the characters to get to know each other a little before he makes the decision to pass her off as his girlfriend in front of his family. The American version doesn't seem to want to waste any time setting up the characters so it jumps almost immediately into the wedding subplot, which makes it seem all the more contrived and idiotic.

Some critics have dismissed Barefoot as one of those the crazy people are saner than the rest of us movies but that's a complete misreading of the material. Daisy isn't crazy--she's a (slightly) more real world version of the character Amy Adams played in Enchanted--a complete innocent encountering our world for the first time. Evan Rachel wood is charming and sweet as Daisy and nearly saves the movie. Unfortunately there are two very big problems.

One is the male lead, Scott Speedman. He's supposed to be playing a charming rogue but mostly comes across as an unlikable jerk. Romantic comedies ultimately rise and fall on the chemistry of their leads but Evan Rachel Wood and Scott Speedman have no chemistry whatsoever, which makes it hard to root for them as a couple. The other big problem is one of tone.
