Overview

In this romantic comedy, an aspiring actress pays her bills by working as a maid for various households. One of her employers is a wealthy and prominent publisher. After accidentally running into each other a number of times on the New York streets without recognizing each other, they begin to fall in love. She wants to take him home, but she is ashamed of her humble quarters. Believing that the publisher is out of town, she decides to take the lover to that apartment and pretend that it is hers. The lover/ publisher did have a business trip, but it was canceled. He decides to go along with her ruse and pretends that he has never been in his own apartment before. The trouble is, he now has no home to go home to; instead, he begins bunking with his business partner. In the end, both would-be lovers learn the truth, but they still refuse to tell each other that they know. Things get a little crazy, especially when the maid has all her girl friends dress up as hookers and come for a wild party at his apartment. He has the last laugh when they end up in jail.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Had it been made twenty years earlier, That Funny Feeling might have been a pretty good little comedy. Not a classic, but a fun, enjoyable way to pass a little time in the company of some pleasant stars. Unfortunately, Feeling came along in 1965, and the innocence that is essential to the credibility of its plot was already beginning to feel a thing of the past. It still might have gotten by if the screenplay had been filled with laughs, sparkling dialogue and a keen sense of imagination. The best that can be said about David R. Schwartz' writing, however, is that the structure is fine; it's mechanical, but it goes together the way it's supposed to and all the parts fit. Richard Thorpe's workmanlike direction doesn't help matters; it is efficient but uninspired and doesn't add the spark that a film of this sort so desperately needs. That leaves things to the cast, especially to stars Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin. These two certainly have chemistry, which helps, but neither one is a real farceur, which is what is needed here. They can play comedy, and do, but neither has the glint in his/her eye that says, "Watch closely, you're going to love what happens next." The supporting cast, especially wonderful Donald O'Connor and Nita Talbot, do more than their fair share, but they can't make Feeling any more than a middling effort at best.

    Cute and Charming!

    I first watched That Funny Feeling years ago on The Family Channel along with If A Man Answers and I loved this cute, charming movie! Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin are both very good and give very charming performances. I bought this movie on DVD and I'm planning on Buying the DVD for their other movie, If A Man Answers. Now they just need to put I'd Rather Be Rich on DVD. I'd Rather Be Rich is a cute charming movie that Sandra Dee made with Robert Goulet and Andy Williams but unforunately Bobby Darin isn't in it. But it's still very good!
