      don d This movie is stupid! Not telling your wife that your dead wife is alive. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Nizar N It's just as good as a Doris Day movie could get, but it definitely doesn't compare to the ones with Rock Hudson and Tony Randall. Move Over, Darling is nevertheless gripping, in a romantic and comedic way of course. It keeps the viewer wondering what will possibly happen next, even if there are certain pacing issues and exaggeration in elongation, and the result is always enjoyable, which makes it an enjoyable movie in all. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/22/23 Full Review steve d could have been cute. The script was not. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I love James Garner and Doris Day together, but this one just didn't do it for me. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review s r Almost good, just I get so frustrated when simple solutions get passed up to make silly things happen. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review ashley h Move Over, Darling is a decent film. It is about a missing wife who was thought long dead after five years lost at sea returns just after her husband remarries. Doris Day and James Garner give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Michael Gordon did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the humor and romance.
