Goldie Hawn
Goldie Hawn was landed with an idiot giggle, a remorseless inclination to squeak and if a brain hummed behind those dumbfounded eyes the secret never leaked out.
(Donald Zec)
Actress, Cactus Flower (1969)
It is dreadfully acted, especially by Goldie Hawn, a listless little chickadee from Laugh-ln who plays Matthau's mistress like an illustration for a bird-seed commercial. Maybe those wide-eyed one-liners and pregnant pauses work on television, but if Miss Hawn is to have any kind of future in movies, she needs to learn something about the rudimentary techniques necessary to sustain a comic scene without putting the audience to sleep.
(Rex Reed)
Actress, Bird on a Wire (1990)
There is something ominous about any film which depends so much on chases - there's a car chase, a motorbike chase and even an air chase. Throughout each, the 46 year-old Goldie Hawn - supposedly depicting a high-powered, successful lawyer - screams and gibbers like a 12 year-old Bonnie Langford with a spider down her back.
(Chris Tookey, Sunday Telegraph)
Actress, Town & Country (2001)
Eerie, horribly stretched and bizarrely coiffed, like Joan Rivers attempting an impersonation of Britney Spears.
