Trivia

Once Warren Beatty bowed out, Universal hit upon the idea of casting Sandra Dee's real-life husband, Bobby Darin, as the two had earlier teamed in Universal's If A Man Answers (1962). Darin enthusiastically came on board, accepted second billing to Dee and, in the bargain, penned the film's background score and title song, which he sings over the main title. See more »

Quotes

Tom Milford: Could we be alone, please?
Audrey: [in a seductive voice] Oh, sure. What did you have in mind?
[Joan looks at Audrey, amazed]
Tom Milford: I meant Joan.

A Fun Time
25 March 2005 | by angelsunchainedSee all my reviews

That Funny Feeling is a delightful, up-beat, cute, funny, and entertaining film. Out-dated for sure, but the movie captures a more innocent time(the early 1960s), when getting a kiss was a big deal. Sandra Dee is at her most beautiful. She was so lovely, so attractive; this role was meant for her. She gives a great performance. Bobby Darren sings the opening song and gives an equally great performance. You can see the sparks fly between these two "real-life" love-birds. Any fan of Sandra or Bobby will enjoy this light-hearted romantic tale.

This is a great movie to watch on a rainy night with someone you are romantically involved with.
