Until she went 'south, (if you know what I mean), I could not get enough of Jane Fonda and since Barbarella was science fiction, even more so!  I just loved the theme song...that scene at the end when Duran Duran put her in that 'ecstasy machine' drove me wild...Wait till I get my devices and I will torture you beyond all known philosophies, said he!

While i understand what you're saying, and tend to agree, i want to let you know that "Anything Goes" is a Cole Porter musical from the 30s. It included the song of the same title.
"In days of old a glimpse of stocking,
was looked on as something shocking.
Now heaven knows, anything goes...."
It was reprised in 67 by Harper's Bizarre.
So what i'm saying is that every generation probably feels the same way.

At the time I saw it I couldn't believe they would go and make a movie like that.But in the late sixties some one came out with a song called:ANY THING GOES.
The early sixties were so clean compared to the late sixties.It seems like 63 was the last good year when you could believe in ourselfs.

I was young and dad took me to see it.......strange movie I thought.  Too bad Hanoi Jane made a bad decision to sit on NVA artillery later on. Bad move !

Saw it on first release, then again about 2 years ago. It was never meant to be taken seriously, just a vehicle for a young Fonda to strut her stuff, literally. It's what we called a "romp". Fun, but that's about all

I finally got around to watching this on video last week. Its theatrical release preceded the MPAA rating system by a few months, I think, so it was labeled "for mature audiences" in 1968. But cuts were made to obtain a PG rating for its re-release in 1977, and that's what seems to be on the DVD (at least the one I got from Netflix). So it's nowhere near as sexy as I thought it'd be. And the acting and special effects are horrible. Crazy psychedelic sets, though.
