what a romantic comedy should be....
28 July 2003 | by (No VA) – See all my reviews

I write this five minutes after hearing of Bob Hope's death. I watched THAT CERTAIN FEELING on a Sunday morning in a hotel room in St. Louis while on vacation with my family. I think it was 1981. 22 years later I still remember how funny, smart and crisp the dialogue was. The movie was so entertaining that we had to call for a late checkout because we wanted to see the end. I'm sure there are better Bob Hope movies, or at least better remembered, but I think it's a fitting tribute to the man and his work that I can remember everything about watching one of his lesser known romantic comedies. I doubt this one gets shown much anymore, but I hope that it will be a part of the inevitable Bob Hope retrospectives on the classic movie networks. It's well worth the time. If nothing else, it is a reminder of how versatile and hard-working Mr. Hope was. He was truly an original.
