(out of 5)


After the immense success of Pillow Talk,  and  were reunited for another sharply written comedy delight. She is once again a working woman who is manipulated by Hudson’s lifelong bachelor, this time as professional rivals working for different advertising agencies. When she discovers that he is working on a new product’s account but hasn’t clinched the deal, she decides to go after it herself and get him back for the previous big money account that he took right from under her. What she doesn’t know is that the product in question is a fiction that he made up to please a jilted girlfriend, and when Day mistakes Hudson for the scientist who has been commissioned to create the product (and justify the commercials that his ad company’s president  ran on television without knowing) it starts the ball rolling for a whole mess of entertainment. Sunny photography, Day’s beautiful outfits and even a couple of songs combine for a wonderful night at the movies, a witty and sophisticated treat.
