A Movie That Continues To Entertain Generations...

""That Funny Feeling," starring Sandra Dee & Bobby Darin, is a wonderfully entertaining movie. The plot of the movie is about a struggling actress (Dee) who is embarrassed of where her and her room-mate live, so instead of allowing the man (Darin),who claims to be an interior decorator, she keeps running into to take her home, she takes him to the apartment that she cleans daily, because she is under the impression that the owner will be out of town for a week, not knowing that the man she met was the owner!
The movie is filled with comedy(!), especially Donald O'Connor as Bobby Darin's neurotic boss/best friend. Nita Talbot also stars as Sandra Dee's room-mate. After 39 years since it's theatrical release and of never being released on VHS, "That Funny Feeling" is finally coming to DVD. It was worth the wait."
A sparkling romp!

"Universal clearly was looking for the next Doris Day-Rock Hudson pairing when they cast Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin in this delightful, featherweight bedroom comedy. Of course, neither has the talent or charisma of Day and Hudson, but a witty script, terrific supporting cast, and nice production values make THIS FUNNY FEELING a winner! Sandra Dee is more at ease before the camera than is Darin, but that's okay because Darin pulls it off and also provides the film's jaunty score. For delightful fun, THIS FUNNY FEELING delivers!"
Sandra and Bobby have That Funny Feeling

"This is a funny movie. Sandra Dee plays a maid who meets a man (Bobby Darrin)that she falls in love with, but she doesn't want him to see her small apartment when he takes her home, so she decides to have him take her home to one of the apartments that she cleans. And unbeknownst to her he is the owner of the apartment. and it ends up in hilarity. Donald O' Connor stars as Bobby Darrin's boss. And he is a laugh a minnute. He is divorcing his wife and he has a lot of valuable paintings in Bobby Darrin's apartment, and he keeps on worrying that Sandra Dee might steal them. And the whole cast is just superb. And Rita Shaw's cameo is so funny, as the lady who says that Bobby Darrin stole her dime. Great movie. And also Bobby Darrin does a great job singing the theme song of the movie."

"I don't for the life of me understand why critics have been so negative toward this film. It is a jewel of a movie, a romantic comedy that succeeds in both areas.
This was the last film that the late former married couple, Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin made together, and it is one of their best.
Joan Howell (Dee, adorable as always) is a struggling actress who works as a maid-for-hire. Tom Milford (Darin, handsome and charming)is a playboy business man. They seem to have little in common, except for the fact that Joan cleans his apartment (of which they are both unaware). After several run-ins (literally) the pair decide to go on a date. Humilated at the thought of taking him back to her cramped apartment which she shares with her wisecracking roommate, Audrey (the hilarious Nita Talbot), she decides to pretend that the apartment she is cleaning is her place, but what she doesn't realize is that it is Tom's apartment!!! Things escalate from there as a bewildered Tom goes along with her, all the while driving his poor harassed boss Harvey Granson (the one and only Donald O'Connor)insane, as he desperately wants to retrieve his priceless (but ugly) paintings from Tom's home. Of course, Joan discovers his deception and wants to get even, although she has fallen in love with him, and he has fallen in love with her. Wonderfully comedic complications and consequences take place.
Larry Storch is priceless as Joan and Audrey's scrappy neighbor Luther, and Leo G. Carroll has a nice role as the owner of a pawnshop. James Westerfield nearly steals the show as a cop that Tom continually runs into, Robert Strauss and Ben Lessy are hysterical as two middle-aged bartenders with very vast imaginations, and Reta Shaw has a funny little bit as a miffed old lady.
All in all, irresistible romantic fun!!! The title tune alone (written and performed by Darin) is in a class all by itself!!! Tons of fun, don't pass it up!!!!!
