A very cute, fun early 1960's romantic comedy involving Doris day as a MOM who gets a TV job and her jealous OBGYN husband Gardner. Full of antics typical of the 1960's where married couples STILL slept in separate beds on TV and on film.

One of my favorite DD comedies. I love the pairing with big, handsome (and very funny) James Garner, with whom she shared a wonderful chemistry as Beverly and Dr. Gerald Boyer, whose happy marriage hits an impasse when housewife Beverly becomes an accidental TV star. Carl Reiner is hilarious in his "television" cameos; veteran character actor Edward Andrews is amusingly droll as a stressed out father-to-be; and the Boyer children, played by Brian Nash and cute as a button Kym Karath, are adorable.

Doris Day is such a wonderfully talented individual that one is pulled into her day in such wonderful ways. And a young James Garner is better in this than he ever was in Maverick. What a delightful film to enjoy with the entire family. Thank you for including it among the library offerings.

GOOD and fun - but this 1963 movie isn't on par with the 50's Doris Day movies - Moonlight Bay and Under the Light of the Silvery Moon - partly because it doesn't have the vaudeville/Broadway style singing/dancing of those.
Somewhat oddly, I did find the movie's use of superbly chosen cars fascinating. In the traffic jam scenes there are MANY diverse beautiful cars of many makes, models.
And the fabulous '58 Chevrolet black Impala convertible Garner drives into the swimming pool was one of my favorite of the 50's.

A wonderful Doris Day comedy from the 1960s with James Garner in the male lead. Not for everyone but this is definitely suitable for the whole family.

This is a very dumb, contrived and, generally, unfunny movie "Sit-Com" from 1963.... This naive suburban/family-life story tries way too hard to be equally cute and sophisticated both at the same time and with that it falls flat on its face, big time.... Actress Doris Day is particularly annoying as the suburban housewife who gets her 15 minutes of fame when she becomes the national advertising spokeswoman for "Happy Soap" products.
