    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Daisy was written without irony, wit or any grounding in reality. She's a barefooted flower child in a flatfooted fiasco. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    This ill-advised romance from director Andrew Fleming is the sort of indie lark that nearly drowns in its own whimsy. Wade in at your own risk. show more

    Sheri Linden The Hollywood Reporter

    Over the decades, there’s been no shortage of boneheaded premises for romantic comedies, but the painfully ill-conceived Barefoot takes boneheadedness to regrettable places. show more

    There is one thing about Barefoot that makes it at least a guilty pleasure. Once you ignore how improbable Daisy is — there is something oddly captivating about Wood's performance. show more

    Mike D'Angelo The Dissolve

    It’s never fully clear whether Daisy is a severely damaged woman with the mental development and social skills of a 10-year-old, or just a wide-eyed, unconventional waif in need of some tender loving care. Barefoot vacillates between the two almost at random, depending upon the needs of its hackneyed screenplay at any given moment. show more

    Barbara VanDenburgh Arizona Republic

    It’s a spectacularly wrong-headed, chemistry-free romance, and too dumb to know how sexist it is. show more

    Michael Nordine Village Voice

    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. show more

    Dennis Harvey Variety

    If the film had a loopier or more fable-styled atmosphere, the concept might have seemed easier to swallow. But Fleming treats Stephen Zotnowski’s script with a glossy literalism that doesn’t do it or the actors any favors. show more
