      Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 4/5 Jun 20, 2003 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The laughs are not only plentiful but also clever. Rated: 3/4 Aug 27, 2023 Full Review Janet Graves Photoplay The three Pillow Talk people have done it again, with a rollicking comedy that coyly pretends to be terribly naughty. Nov 18, 2020 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Both Doris Day and Rock Hudson show unaccustomed liveliness as ad-agency rivals who use their glands as audio-visual aids, client-wise. Oct 11, 2019 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Formulaic, this Oscar-winning comedy reaffirmed the status of Rock Hudson and Doris Day as America's most popular stars at the box-office.

      Nizar N Yet another classic from Doris Day, Rock Hudson, and Tony Randall. It builds up on Pillow Talk while eliminating the very tiny mistakes that were present there. Though the ending may seem rushed, the rest of the movie is at perfect pacing, with intelligence being noticeable in the story, script, dialogue, quips, characters... The comedy and funny situations are remarkable as well. Those behind Lover Come Back knew how to perfectly refine it to leave a timeless classic behind. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/23 Full Review Liam D A very underrated movie with the paring of Doris Day (On Moonlight Bay, Julie) and Rock Hudson (Bend of the River, The Mirror Crack'd) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/26/22 Full Review Audience Member Amiable and entertaining Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/23/21 Full Review Audience Member Similar plot to Pillow Talk (in fact some of the jokes are even the same!) but personally I much prefer this film of the two. Rock Hudson and Doris Day have great chemistry. Light, fun, and sure to make you smile. Highly recommend. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review steve d These two were always fun together but this isn't their best. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny funny movie. Both Doris Day and Rock Hudson had immaculate comic timing and very few actors were ever funnier than Tony Randall. The bonus,of course is getting to hear the crystal clear singing voice of Doris Day. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
