Crazy Credits

The opening credits are animated in the style of a series of children's crayon drawings. The Art Director credit is misspelled, comically and deliberately as "ART DER," scratched out, misspelled again as "ART DUR," scratched out again, the entire page is crumpled, and the credit finally appears, correct and not animated, on the following screen.

One of the Best Doris Day Movies of All
30 March 2004 | by tackett-1See all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie. People have commented that Doris Day's later movies were not as good as the ones from the early '60s, but I disagree. The storyline here is very engaging, and the characters are superb. I totally lose myself in this movie when I watch it, and I laugh out loud every time. It is fun to follow the timeline of the movie... if you analyze it the entire thing takes place over about 5 months. It begins in June (with Flip and Stacey's graduation), and ends around Halloween (hence the brief appearnces of the Halloween masks). The supporting cast is terrific too, some great old faces that everyone will recognize. If you love the classic comedies of Doris Day, I heartily recommend this one.
