Did You Know?

Trivia:
The boat that was used in the film sank two miles off the coast of Zuma Beach in Los Angeles on 11 June 2006. "The Phoenix" was traveling from Newport Beach to San Francisco Bay where it was going to be used as a Cajun restaurant. The cause of the sinking was due to a two-by-six inch crack in the glass hull. All crew members were rescued. What made the sinking unusual is that the glass bottom is installed at the bottom of a "well" in the center of the ship. The top of this well is set above the usual waterline so that if the glass broke, as here, the ship would not sink. The only reason the ship should sink is if it was heavily loaded, making it sit too deep in the water.See more »

First-class slapstick and romance, 22 January 2001
Author: moonspinner55 from las vegas, nv

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 ****
