Jennifer Nelson: This is called The Clean Room. It's completely sterilized so that no dust or dirt will contaminate the critical parts. Workers entering the clean room must first stand on this grate, which shakes off dust from shoes and clothing. Like this... Oh dear, I guess we better go now. We'll go that way.

First-class slapstick and romance
22 January 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Is this Doris Day's best movie? Probably not, but it is one of her funniest and I laughed more here than at any of her bedroom comedies from this era. Fashionably advertised as a spy comedy--it's really not (there's one spy late in the film)--it features our Doris as a kooky widow with a menagerie of pets who spends her nights at school (some of her classes are ballet and map-making!) and her days as an aerospace tour guide. On the weekends, she dons a mermaid's tail and swims beneath her father's vessel. Doris is very down-to-the-earth here, never too-cute. I loved the warmly feminine feel she gives to the song "Soft As The Starlight", and the lovely look on her face after Rod Taylor kisses her for the first time. The slapstick stuff is very raucous and noisy, but I laughed out loud when Paul Lynde followed Doris into the ladies room dressed in drag, or when Doris makes a date with two different men for a romantic evening, and the men are the ones who end up (innocently) in bed together. Dick Martin says to Edward Andrews, "Do you wanna meet early and pick out the furniture?" An exceptionally smart bauble: breezy, plushly-made and essentially brainless, but it makes for a great couple of hours. ***1/2 from ****
