"That Funny Feeling" doesn't by any means test the acting capabilitiesof Darin, or the glamour of Dee, but it is nonetheless a delightful,funny, and even colorful, film. As a bemused and confused victim of"Joan"'s bizarre method of dealing with an unacceptable home address.There are some great visuals, Darin climbing out of the upstairs windowto avoid a confrontation in his own apartment with "Joan", the phonebooth scene, the moment when he gets in the cab and in answer to thequestion, "where to?" simply says, "I don't know." Darin and co-starSandra Dee look great together - no wonder that happened! And it isalways fun to see Donald O'Connor too. I'd have loved to hear moresongs from Darin, but the plot just didn't call for them. The titlesong is a very catchy, though. It is a movie that takes me back to whatwas best in the '60's - innocent fun and romance with humor and charm.

I am so tired of violet, sexually explicit movies that if you took outall the bad language there would be no dialogue: this one is a delight.Yes it is silly, but such a nice change of pace.
There is a great deal of tongue and cheek humor from the 50's and 60'sthat younger generations might not understand, their loss.
It is nice to go back to a kind and gentler time.
I read some of the negative reviews about Sandra Dee, but I could nameat least a score of current actresses from the same mold, but jaded bythe current definition of talent that are popular but so much worse asactresses.
If you want something light and fun, it this a great film.

That Funny Feeling marked the last film that husband and wife SandraDee and Bobby Darin made together. Soon after this they split, but thepassion was so strong they never remarried.
I'm thinking that around this time Rock Hudson was getting set todepart from Universal and I'm sure the studio thinking was that Darinand Dee could step right into the shoes of Hudson and Doris Day. Tenyears earlier Rock and Doris would have made this film no doubt aboutit.
Sandra lives in a cracker box apartment with her friend Nita Talbotwhen she meets man about town Darin. Among other things Dee does tomake the rent is clean apartments and she cleans Darin's though shenever met him. Not knowing who he is, she pretends that his apartmentis her's while Darin is supposed to be away on business.
The business he's on is trying to protect and hide the assets of hisboss Donald O'Connor in the Tony Randall role, to wit some modern artpaintings, hideous to some, valuable to others from being part of adivorce settlement. After this film gets positively zany in the Rockand Doris tradition.
O'Connor has some of the best lines in the film. I suppose had theRock&Doris type comedies stayed in vogue O'Connor might have had asecond career in these parts. A lot of other familiar faces dot thesupporting cast, again like a Rock and Doris flick.
Darin even sings the title song over the credits of That Funny Feeling.What more could you want?
Joan Howell, a young and pretty maid-for-hire, meets and begins dating wealthy New York City businessman Tom Milford. Embarrassed about bringing him back to her tiny apartment that she shares with her roommate Audrey, Joan brings Tom over to a fancy apartment that she cleans on a daily basis not knowing that it's his place. Tom plays along with the charade despite not knowing who Joan really is, while she tries to tidy up Tom's place not knowing who he really is.
