Storyline

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. It has the potential to be real with the ... Written by Huggo

Too much bickering, not enough romantic comedy
5 February 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Despite a cute--if not exactly fresh--opening, "Do Not Disturb" immediately starts to disintegrate. Why? I think it's all in the script, which is second-rate. The movie pairs Doris Day with handsome, adept Rod Taylor, but gives them no scenes together as man and wife that make you care about their union (they're usually fighting with each other over the telephone). This is important to note because when Doris starts (innocently) dallying with a Frenchman, there's nothing at stake for her--or for her marriage. Some of Day's double-takes are funny, and the madcap finish is delightfully screwball, but there's a huge chunk of movie in between these scenes that goes absolutely flat. The plot has an American couple moving to the English countryside, and the portrayal of the Britishers is ridiculous and corny. Towards the end, as Doris is walking through a lobby full of men and women, try spotting Raquel Welch in one of her very first show business jobs. ** from ****
