Product Description


James Garner substitutes for Rock Hudson in this hilarious Doris Day outing. Housewife Beverly Boyer (Day) happens by chance to give an executive of Happy Soap an honest appraisal of one of his company's products. Charmed by her forthright and honest manner, he makes Beverly the company spokesperson. When she becomes an advertising sensation, her husband (Garner) has to deal with the social ramifications of his wife making more money than he does. Day and Garner are both in good form, and Garner nicely portrays the mounting frustration of bewildered husband Gerald.

Gerald's refusal to accept that Beverly's new career infringes on her duties as housewife is, of course, outdated thinking today. Nevertheless, the film works and is sincerely funny. No wonder: comedian Carl Reiner cowrote the script. --Mark Savary

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent movie Dec 17 2013
I really enjoy this movie. One must understand that when it was made life was much different then. I was a child so I remember what family values were like. It was important to be a homemaker, very valued profession. This movie shows that, and James Garner and Doris Day both do excellent work, are very enjoyable, and favourites of mine. Some of the other reviews posted here, do not do this movie justice, so I wanted a positive review for this movie. I also like the Rock Hudson/Doris Day movies, but James Garner is a breath of fresh air in this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doris Day, need I say more? Oct. 7 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you an adoring Doris Day fan you'll love this film. I'm a relatively new fan of Doris Day but what a huge fan I have become. Doris Day and James Garner were delightfully humorous and sexy in this comedy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good old fashioned comedy.

2.0 out of 5 stars so so Doris Day film Aug. 19 2003
By Beth
Format:VHS Tape
After falling in love with Doris Day's Les Brown recordings, I decided to give her later movies another chance. Before hand I had the impression as many people do of her being a 50's housewife stereotype. Through her big band music I learned otherwise. But this movie didn't help.
The first half hour had promise. It had ideas but about half way through and then just threw in whatever it could. It was obvious Rob Reiner who I'm not too fond of ran out of ideas. Doris Day was charming towards the beginning but even she couldn't hold this together. The person who really steals this movie is Kym Karath, the little cutie who later played Gretl in The Sound of the Music. The children's scenes and their observations about their parents are the best moments of the movie.
Rock Hudson was lucky not to be in this project. These roles were made for Rock but James does okay. The problem isn't him. It's that his character is so unlikable. For a better Doris Day film of this period see Pillow Talk. It's worthy of her talent.

3.0 out of 5 stars relies on Doris Day's charm May 27 2003
By A Customer
This movie basically relies on Doris Day's charm to make the movie work. James Garner just isn't that charming, he just doesn't have that chemistry that Doris Day used to have with Rock Hudson. I felt that the plot was a little old fashioned. I enjoyed it for what it was but I wouldn't watch it again. It was still a fun movie to watch especially the scene where the whole house fills up with soap suds. That was hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Movie for the Whole Family March 22 2000
Format:VHS Tape
When housewife, Doris Day, is asked to do live tv commercials for Happy Soap, her doctor husband, James Garner is not pleased. But when things start getting really crazy (like when the owners of Happy Soap install a swimming pool in their backyard without telling them and James Garner drives his car into it ) things start going downhill. This is one of the funniest and at the same time most adorable family movies I have ever seen. When Doris Day gets frustrated in her first live commercial and introduces herself by saying "Hello, I'm Beverly Boyer, and I'm a pig..." you start laughing and don't quit. It's a rare movie that doesn't resort to bad language, nudity or sex to find its audience. I enjoyed every minute of it and recommend it to anyone wanting to find a movie for the whole family that you don't have to censor.

Doris day and James garner are paired up nicely in this old classic, she is an ordinary house wife and he's a doctor that delivers babies, they go for dinner at one of his patience houses and the hilariousness begins. My mom and I loved watching this movie.
