Jack Lemmon wrote that he thought this was a good, funny movie that didn't do well because of its "terrible title". He thought he and Doris Day had very good chemistry together, and he regretted that they never did another film.
Doris Day wrote that her manager/husband Martin Melcher was terribly concerned over the box-office failure of this film and The Tunnel of Love (1958). Their failures caused Day to drop out of the Top Ten Box Office Stars. Day and Melcher had words about him hustling her into almost any film for the money instead of waiting to find good scripts that would have produced better results.
