Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The movie acts like screwball comedy, but there are no laughs as Daisy and Jay's connection lurches toward implausible romance.
Rotten: A return to the cinema of adorable mental illness - something that, like the killer in a slasher movie, always seems to lurch back to life just when you think it's safely dead ...
Rotten: "Barefoot" has the distinction of featuring what has to be the only female character no actress of any pedigree could ever make believable.
Rotten: The gradual revelation that there's more to Daisy than meets the eye is no great surprise, but it does at least negate - too late! - some of the more troubling subtext.
It was so cuuute! I didn't want it to end! Sure it shows mental illness as being 'adorable', but critics need to take a chill pill and escape into movies sometimes instead of picking everything apart like it's up for an oscar. It's just a fun, simple and sweet movie.
Refreshing & lovely
It is a shame that rotten tomatoes completely missed this refreshingly lovely movie that takes a close look at two “broken” individuals who are able to heal each other. Very touching movie, and I highly recommend it (especially well acted)!
there were so many things wrong about this film. The depiction of mental illness, the horrible way the man male character treats women, and the ending that seems not well thought out. Id say wait for red box and get it for $1 if you must see it otherwise don't waste your time/money.
