Horrifying (from a woman's perspective at least). He lies and misleads her for most of the movie and then the ending is like wtf

Hey! Let's face it, folks - If you've seen one Rock Hudson/Doris Day Comedy/Romance, then, yep-yep, you've, pretty much, seen them all.

With only a slight variation on the theme - This predictably trite, little story about deliberate identity deception (set in the bustling, backstabbing world of NYC advertising agencies) really prolonged its ridiculous, little charade for far too long. And, that, in turn, totally wore on my overall patience as I desperately wanted to get through this nothing-picture, like, pronto!

Believe me, I am really trying to keep in mind that this flighty, little film (from 1961) was, in fact, made in a much more naive era of movie-making history than we live in today. But, regardless of this, its storytelling was pretty stale stuff, for the most part.

And, speaking about the likes of Rock Hudson and Doris Day - Personally, I found the on-screen chemistry between these 2 to be pretty terrible and very unconvincing. I wonder if this was because, off screen, they (perhaps) hated each other's guts (?).

Must See - Lover Come Back (1961) 107 min. Rock Hudson, Doris Day and especially Tony Randall are at their best in this very witty and funny comedy about the advertising industry and securing clients. OPL should invest in a DVD copy of this film.
