There's only one problem however: he's never been fishing in his life. When the store owner enters him in a fishing contest, mayhem ensues.Written by

Rock Hudson and Doris Day made a great box office team for comedy romances. But, Rock could also do comedy quite well with other co-stars. In this case, it's Paula Prentiss. Only, the theme is reversed in this film. Rock is the pursuer of Doris in their films. Here, it's Prentiss who is pursuing Hudson.
Form the very start – the title of the film, one has as inkling of the fun that is about to get underway. The name, "Man's Favorite Sport?" ends with a question mark. So, is it fishing that the cover and plot otherwise lead one to believe? Or is it something else? Again, the opening credits and song give it away. So, all the viewer has to do is sit back and enjoy this wonderful comedy romance.
A lot happens at Lake Wakapoogee when sporting goods salesman and how-to fishing author, Roger Willoughby (Hudson), must join the lake's annual fishing contest. And it's all funny. The hijinks are all at Rock's expense, and he shows that he can play that end of comedy every bit as well as on the dishing out side. Prentiss is Abigail Page, public relations agent for the lake lodge. She is very good in her role with her not so subtle come on to Willoughby. Toss in a fine cast of some fishing impresarios and friends, and it's one fine funny film. This is good, clean fun for the whole family.
