Overview

Light and laugh-filled, Send Me No Flowers is typical Rock Hudson and Doris Day fare. George (Hudson) is a hypochondriac married to Judy (Day) in this marital comedy. When George goes to visit the doctor, he overhears two doctors talking about a diagnosis of a terminally ill patient. George believes they are talking about him and that he is doomed to die. He recruits his friend Arnold (Tony Randall) to find a new husband for Judy. Judy thinks George is covering up for an illicit affair and throws him out of the house. George locates Judy's old college flame Bert (Clint Walker), now a Texas oil millionaire. Excellent performances by Edward Andrews as Dr. Morrissey and Paul Lynde as the aggressive cemetery-plot salesman help this feature along. Although not as solid as the Day/Hudson pairing in Pillow Talk or Lover Come Back, Send Me No Flowers is still a good romantic comedy.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Exceedingly lightweight, Send Me No Flowers gets by due to its engaging cast, rather than its sometimes irritating script. Said script also has a fundamental flaw -- the most predominant example being that Doris Day and Rock Hudson are married when the story opens, thus robbing the film of the sexual tension and interplay that make the stars' earlier pairings work. Without that, there's a bit of a hole at the center of Flowers, and the screenwriters have not supplied enough wit and vitality to disguise this fact. In addition, the basic premise of the film is too "Hollywood" and is supported by plot turns that are much too predictable and clichéd. Although Norman Jewison directs lightly and sprightly, the limits of the screenplay still place a big burden on the cast. Fortunately, Hudson and Day are in top form, displaying the same chemistry that was such a big asset on previous outings and going through the mechanics of the plot with a commitment that makes the clichéd seem almost fresh. As usual, Tony Randall steals the show with his impeccable timing and delivery, and there's also able assist from Paul Lynde and Edward Andrews. In the end, Flowers is no bed of roses, but the stars make it an appealing little springtime bouquet.

    Good But Not as Good as Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back!

    Send Me No Flowers is my least favorite movie that Doris Day made with Rock Hudson. I still enjoyed watching it but it just doesn't have the same appeal of Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back. It is a cute movie but not as charming or as magical as their other movies and it dragged on a bit towards the end of the movie. I'm rating this movie 4 stars but I would really give it 3 1/2 stars but I feel it is better then 3 stars!
