Barbarella

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Unevenly paced and thoroughly cheesy, Barbarella is nonetheless full of humor, entertaining visuals, and Jane Fonda's sex appeal.

Budd Wilkins Slant Magazine Barbarella remains a stylish time capsule of that tumultuous era, as well as a trippily designed bit of retrofuturism. Nov 21, 2023 Full Review Kim Newman Empire Magazine Cheerfully catch-all. Rated: 4/5 Jul 13, 2010 Full Review Dave Kehr Chicago Reader The film is ugly on so many levels -- from art direction to human values -- that it's hard to know where to begin. Apr 17, 2007 Full Review Emilie Black Cinema Crazed The film is one of those that defines an era Rated: 4/5 Nov 28, 2023 Full Review Taylor Baker Drink in the Movies Episode 36: Love in the Time of Monsters / Barbarella / Welcome to the Dollhouse / Johnny Guitar Rated: 75/100 Oct 3, 2021 Full Review Penelope Houston The Spectator Barbarella is a gift-wrapped 'X' certificate bonbon for a space age nursery.

Bakercakes Its an absolutely ridiculous space sex opera that has been argued by many to be either feminist progressive storytelling or misogynistic exploitation. I think this movie lets you see what you want to see in it. Mayhap that is its lasting legacy. The popcorn was excellent, and that seems fitting. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/20/22 Full Review Tim M Barbarella is almost too errantly weird in its '60s psychedelia for its own good, but a self-aware sense of humor and a classically sexy Jane Fonda make it iconic all the same. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/18/24 Full Review Trevor T I get that this was made way back in the '60's but still, it is a real turkey. Script, costumes, music, acting there is nothing good in it. It only got cult status back in the day because Fonda took her top off. That is no the basis for a decent film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/06/24 Full Review Leaburn O This is next level weird and camp, however it gets an extra star for skimpy and nude Jane Fonda. I mean, she was really something wowzers. Watched it on Sky Cinema. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review Destry Shane S Great late 60s visuals, special effects and editing. Love the goofiness and costumes. And Jane Fonda is so sexy in this movie. Definitely worth a watch if you enjoy this type of film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Jonathan O Barbarella is a soft sci-fi cheesy erotic comedy is like if Star Wars is in pornhub in 1968 at 42nd street. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/24 Full Review Read all reviews
