Frank J. Avella Edge Media Network Still, there's enough to entertain especially an extended bed scene between Hudson and Edward Judd, a Lollobrigida suiter. It's hilarious watching Hudson and Judd creating quite a bit of their own homoerotic chemistry lying in bed next to one another. Rated: B- Apr 4, 2022 Full Review Raquel Stecher Out of the Past Strange Bedfellows is not as good as Come September but worth watching to see Lollobrigida and Hudson together again Dec 31, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D Cute and quite funny. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought it was impossible to dislike a Rock Hudson movie, but alas, here's one that's best to be forgotten. It's incredibly slow paced and Lollobrigida is no substitute for Doris Day. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Typical bedroom comedy from the 60s, but great fun! Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida had fiery chemistry. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoyed this film. Granted I am a classics buff & well Gay or not, Rock Hudson is HOT. The chemistry between these two is great & I loved all the passionate fighting. It was a fun movie. If you like classic romantic comedies of the 60's you will love this film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Two "very straight" old timers have to learn how to pass as a loving gay couple after falsing chalming same sex status to take advantage of an newly legislated tax law. This reminds me of a 2007 movie "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry" along the same lines> Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member All CLASSICS are GOOD Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
