American couple Mike and Janet Harper move to England for Mike's work, his company which deals in wool textiles and wool fashions. Despite Mike's want for them to live in a flat in the heart of London, Janet, who is not a big city girl, ignores his want and instead finds them a house to rent thirty miles outside of London in Kent, which means that Mike has to commute into town by train. This commute is not ideal for Mike, who often for convenience stays in one of the company's flats in town rather than go home. This commuting situation makes Janet feel even more neglected than she already did previously. Janet believes Mike may be taking his neglect to the next level by having an affair with his secretary quickly turned assistant, Claire Hackett. Janet's beliefs are fueled in part by the Harper's busybody landlady, Vanessa Courtwright, who thinks Janet can play Mike's game by entering into an affair of her own, whether it be real or made-up.

Doris Day wrote in her 1975 autobiography that this was one of the films that she did not want to do but was forced to do because her husband/manager Martin Melcher had power of attorney and signed her for it without her knowledge or consent. See more »
When Janet is driving Mike in the convertible and meets the lorry, she is driving in the right lane and thus in the wrong. However in the close up shot of the two of them in the car, the car following them is also driving in the right lane. See more »
Excellent, funny, sexy Rod Taylor, and talented Doris Day!
I loved this film, it was just as good as 'The Glass Bottom Boat' which was to follow the year after. Some very funny scenes as Janet Harper (Doris Day) tries to adjust to life in England. The pairing of Doris Day and the sexy Rod Taylor is excellent and unique - they make a great pair. Traditional Doris Day kind of plot where someone gets the wrong end of the stick. Funny bedroom farce scene towards the end. Highly recommended!
