Goldie Hawn Misses The Type Of 1980s “Feelgood”

Goldie Hawn

I love the fact Goldie Hawn is still pining for those 1980s feelgood movies that remain some of my all-time favourites and, conveniently, feature Hawn quite prominently.

You know which ones I’m talking about – Seems Like Old Times, Overboard, Private Benjamin, Wildcats – while either side of the decade she starred in Foul Play (1978), Housesitter (1992), Death Becomes Her (1992) and Bird on a Wire (1990).

I think we can all agree – at least those of a certain generation – that they (read: Hollywood) don’t make them like they used to. It isn’t for a lack of trying though. Even nostalgia like the Ghostbusters all-female reboot and Coming 2 America have tried to rekindle the “feelgood” Hawn refers to and I, like her, crave. But these, like other examples, have failed disastrously.

In a 2020 interview with The Guardian’s Amy Fleming, Goldie Hawn reflected on her career, and suggested that she misses the creative freedom afforded to her in 1980s, telling Fleming that it was a great time for her to showcase strong, intelligent, self-made female characters.

Indeed, her success in the 1960s and 1970s allowed her to produce a number of movies in the 1980s and 1990s meaning she was able to pursue stories she was passionate about. She certainly made some great choices as the 1980s is where a lot of Goldie Hawn’s best work can be found.

The actor and producer who was most recently seen in The Christmas Chronicles II alongside long-time partner Kurt Russell, said the decade was a “great period of abandonment” and “great fun”. She continued: “A lot of the movies that we made then were feelgood movies. They don’t make them much any more.”
