Jane Fonda
Jane has survived more bad movies than any actress should be able to in a lifetime.
(Henry Fonda)
Actress, The Chapman Report (1962)
Fonda seems miscast and is affected and unappealing.
(Variety)
Actress, Any Wednesday (1966)
Jane Fonda is about as funny as a manic-depressive having her first nervous breakdown.
(Rex Reed)
Actress, The Game Is Over (1966)
Miss Fonda is less attractive with her clothes off than with them on, which knocks out the only plus factor that Mr. Vadim might have had going for him.
(Bosley Crowther, New York Times)
Actress, Barbarella (1967)
Fonda’s abilities are stretched to the breaking point along with her clothes.
(Variety)
Fonda's reputation as an air-headed activist is sadly borne out here.
(Robert Asahina, New Leader)
She plays her character like a cross between Barbarella and a Barbie doll.
(Richard Corliss, Time)
Actress, Julia (1977)
The acting, too, seems reverential to a fault, with Fonda (a far too unplain Jane to portray Lillian) always suggesting weights suspended from her limbs and voice.
(John Simon, National Review)
