Directed by: Delbert Mann
Starring: Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall
Jerry Webster and Carol Templeton are both in the advertising business, but for different agencies. Annoyed by Jerry's methods of using alcohol and women to ensure contracts for his agency, Carol tries to get him thrown out of his profession. To avoid this Jerry bribes the girl who'd testify against him, by starring her in a TV commercial for a product named VIP that he's just made up. By accident these commercials are broadcasted and to keep his job, Jerry has to come up with VIP for which he enlists the help of Doctor Linus Tyler. Carol goes to see the Doctor to try and get the VIP account, but because she and Jerry have never met, she mistakes Jerry for the Doctor. Jerry then takes advantage of this situation to win her.

Once again we team with Day, Hudson and Randall for a comedy that I like a tad better than Pillow Talk.
It does rehash the plot but it was a bit more enjoyable having Doris not give in so easily to a hunky Rock Hudson than she did in the latter film.
Rock is just as sex crazed as he is in the other and it gets him into high water. Of course being such a smooth talker he can get his way out of trouble. Tony Randall is again cute and clever and so awkward, you can't help but love him for trying to be the rational one of the trio - "trying" used loosely.
This movie also has one of the funniest phone conversations I've heard that I know some of it by heart:
"Well let me put it this way, I don't use sex to land an account"
"When do you use it?
"My condolences to your husband"
"I'm not married"
"Well, that figures"
"What do you mean that figures?"
I had fun watching it and I best be getting to Send Me No Flowers because these two are so charming and funny, they beat out any comedic twosome today.
