Trivia

In one scene, Tom Milford (Bobby Darin) explains to Harvey Granson (Donald O'Connor) that the party scheduled for that night will celebrate the unveiling of the Statue of Liberty which took place 78 years ago that day. So the date of the party is 28 October 1964 since the unveiling of the Statue took place on 28 October 1886. See more »

Quotes

Joan Howell: [Becoming suspicious of an alcoholic drink he's made for her] Say, what's the proportion of gin and quinine water in this drink?
Tom Milford: Oh, I'd say about, uh... "even-Steven."
Joan Howell: [starting to giggle] I'd say it was more "Steven" than "even."

enjoyable escape to the '60's!
29 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"That Funny Feeling" doesn't by any means test the acting capabilities of Darin, or the glamour of Dee, but it is nonetheless a delightful, funny, and even colorful, film. As a bemused and confused victim of "Joan"'s bizarre method of dealing with an unacceptable home address. There are some great visuals, Darin climbing out of the upstairs window to avoid a confrontation in his own apartment with "Joan", the phone booth scene, the moment when he gets in the cab and in answer to the question, "where to?" simply says, "I don't know." Darin and co-star Sandra Dee look great together - no wonder that happened! And it is always fun to see Donald O'Connor too. I'd have loved to hear more songs from Darin, but the plot just didn't call for them. The title song is a very catchy, though. It is a movie that takes me back to what was best in the '60's - innocent fun and romance with humor and charm.
