This film is one of many Universal-International vehicles in the 1960s patterned from the template that had served Rock Hudson, Doris Day and Tony Randall so well. The chief elements concern subterfuge of some kind between a womanizing bachelor and a woman who prioritizes her career before her love life. One of the parties poses as an alias and, at some point, the plot calls for the male to pass himself off as gay in order to lower her resistance to his seductive moves. The bachelor typically has a wealthy, neurotic sidekick, while the career woman turns to a cynical, outspoken best female friend. That Funny Feeling in particular is a direct descendent of Pillow Talk (1959), following every element of this template. Imitative efforts like this are the reason most fans assume that Hudson and Day teamed in countless pictures when in fact they made three, only two of which fit the mold. See more »
I didn't finish with my wife's lawyers 'till after midnight.
You mean you and Leona still can't agree on a settlement?
Oh, yeah, she wants to split everything down the middle including my head.

That Funny Feeling is so incredibly dated, it could never be remade today, but if you like sex comedies from the 1960s that have absolutely no relevance in the modern era, you'll probably enjoy watching it. And if you like seeing the adorable sparks between Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee, add this one to your list.
Sandra Dee plays a maid who feels ashamed of her lowly station when the wealthy Bobby Darin asks her out on a date. Even right there, the movie's dated. Thanks to Love Story, poor girls don't think twice about going out with rich boys. Bobby and Sandy go out, get along, but when he wants to see her home safely, she panicks and takes him to one of the apartments she cleans! This is 1965, so he just sees her to the door and leaves, by the way. What she doesn't know is that the apartment she's pretending is hers is actually his! It's actually a really cute story and meet-cute, but it's so dated you're going to have to put on your '60s goggles before you watch it.
Of course, there are tons of sex jokes and will-she-or-won't-she situations that were hilarious at the time but now just evoke a chuckle. Bobby's friend and sidekick is Donald O'Connor, and his advice for his bachelor friend is very funny. In my opinion, there's no reason why Pillow Talk has stood the test of time over That Funny Feeling; they both involve dated plots, deception, misidentities, and an endless quest to get the virtuous lady in the bedroom. Give it a try if you like this type of comedy!
