The Rewind (1960’s Edition) Cactus Flower (1969)

Cactus Flower (1969)

Comedy/ Romance

Cast- Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman, Goldie Hawn.

This is a great comedy. There have been many variations of this story before and after, but this remains one of if not my all time favorites. About a dentist (Matthau) who lies about being married to avoid ever committing to one girl.  He winds up falling for a girl and proposes. In a scramble to fix the problem he asks his assistant to pose as his wife. Romance and comedy ensue.

The movie has a solid script, but the trio of actors involved make this a special movie that I’d recommend to almost anyone who appreciates a good comedy.

Comedy is hard as everyone has their own taste. If you like more slapstick and raunchy type humor. Then avoid this movie. It won’t make you laugh all that much. However, if you watched (and loved) the television show Frasier, then you are likely in for a real treat.  .
