Fun With Dick and Jane
The original version of this comedy was a little countercultural, a lot class-conscious, and a touch subversive; this remake is all farce when what is needed is satire.

Film Review  December 23, 2005, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Starring: Jim Carrey, Téa Leoni, Alec Baldwin, Richard Jenkins, Jeff Garlin, Richard Burgi and Angie Harmon. When the first version of this movie appeared in 1977 it starred George Segal and Jane Fonda and meshed perfectly with its times – a little countercultural, a lot class-conscious, and a touch subversive..."

Awfully likeable ensemble comedy.

From the Journals of Jean Seberg
French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard supposedly described film history as a history of boys photographing girls. For American actress Jean Seberg -- herself one of the girls photographed by...

Film Review  June 21, 1996, by Alison Macor
"...As Seberg, Hurt analyzes her first film performance in Otto Preminger's Saint Joan (1957) with a dry wit, remarking, “I was no Brando.” She adopts a similar tone in appraisal of her other film roles, many of which were directed by Seberg's three husbands. Patterns in Seberg's personal relationships are deduced from her films, and much film time (perhaps too much) is spent connecting threads between two contemporaries of Seberg's, Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave..."

Film Review  April 10, 1992, by Louis Black
"...Her best songs have usually transcended this because her voice hints of desperation and passion. 9 to 5 was a cartoon, a farcical take, with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as fellow working stiffs..."

Monster-in-Law
This banal and lukewarm slice of romantic comedy is as soft and ephemeral as any colorized Ted Turner outing.

Georgia Rule
Despite the presence of three acting powerhouses – Jane Fonda, Felicity Huffman, and Lindsay Lohan – this movie about three generations of "difficult" women never rings true.

Film Review  March 1, 1996, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Starring: Robert Redford, Michelle Pfeiffer, Stockard Channing, Joe Mantegna, Kate Nelligan, Glenn Plummer and James Rebhorn. Why was it that every time I saw the trailer for Up Close and Personal, I felt that I ought to be seeing Jane Fonda's face where, instead, I was seeing Michelle Pfeiffer's? It wasn't wishful thinking, but was it reflections of the young Fonda as the China Syndrome reporter that I was seeing? Or, perhaps, memories of several earlier parings of Fonda and Redford in movies like The Chase, Barefoot in the Park, and the Electric Horseman that I was recalling? Or was it shades of the current-day Fonda as the spouse of a powerful and dashing media mogul that I saw? Well, subliminal cues are one thing, but only a viewing of the movie revealed the heart of my illusion -- the romantic goop at the movie's core..."

Mr. Easy Rider Takes a Wild Flyer
Peter Fonda Strikes the Father Lode in Ulee's Gold
Screens Story  June 27, 1997, by Russell Smith
"..."Ulee's Gold has blasted me right out my pigeonhole and into a bluebird's nest" -- Peter Fonda Peter Fonda may have been, as he often remarks, "born famous," but that's not to say he registers very strongly on most movie fans' perceptual radar. In fact, prior to his starring role in Victor Nunez's newly released Ulee's Gold, his image has essentially been a piecemeal assemblage of Roger Corman biker-hellraiser iconography and unreliably remote memories of long-past artistic triumphs..."

Barbarella
Based on a French comic strip, Fonda and her then-husband Roger Vadim had a good time with this outrageous movie about the adventures of a 41st century sexual explorer. It makes virtually no sense, but the costumes are fetishistic gems and the set design trips the light fantastic.
Film Review  April 27, 2000, by Marjorie Baumgarten

Across the Universe
Gearing up for a new national tour of her hit show The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, Lily Tomlin took a few minutes to talk about connectedness -- her connectedness with The Search, with audiences, and with Austin.
Arts Story  September 17, 1999, by Robert Faires
"...So it's like every generation -- and this is almost a new generation, one that probably has no idea who I am, basically. I look familiar, but it's like Jane Fonda -- They think Jane Fonda is that exercise person or she's married to Ted Turner and goes to Atlanta Braves games -- but anyway, there's so much wonder, there's so much of a kind of magical synergy that happens in the audience when it's done well and the audience is really there for it..."

Books Story  September 14, 2001, by Dick Holland
"...Strangelove pretty much ended any remaining inclinations Southern had toward "quality lit," and the rest of his career was devoted to writing for the screen. His movie credits include the script for Tony Richardson's film of Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One, adaptations of John Fowles' novel The Collector and John Barth's The End of the Road, and original scripts for The Cincinnati Kid (Sam Peckinpah was replaced by Norman Jewison as director) and for the Jane Fonda Sixties cult-favorite Barbarella..."

Film Review  May 19, 2006, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...While a great number of former servicemen are interviewed for the film, their largely one-on-one recollections and testimonies are greatly magnified by the massive amount of archival visual footage presented here. Jane Fonda (whose son Troy Garrity narrates the documentary) is also interviewed in the present day about her involvement with the FTA tours she famously conducted with Donald Sutherland and others who toured throughout the U.S..."

"...She took acting jobs now and again in films both great (The Graduate) and cult (Brian De Palma's early comedy Get to Know Your Rabbit with Tom Smothers; Billy Jack – and don't get her started on that film's creator and leading ego Tom Laughlin). She did TV (The Bob Newhart Show, The Odd Couple, Happy Days) and had a couple of close calls with memorable roles (Peter Bogdanovich told her that she was his second choice for the Cloris Leachman role in The Last Picture Show; she was up for the role of Phyllis on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, which also went to Leachman.) Alan Myerson made the jump to film, directing Steelyard Blues with a post-Klute Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland – supported by a dozen of their old Committee cohorts..."
