Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 3/5 Mar 25, 2004 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Made toward the end of their careers, the first and only teaming of Cary Grant and Doris Day is an overly familiar comedy that combines elements of their screen images.

M S So dated you'll spend the whole movie cringing. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Nizar N Some may find it outdated, but that doesn't change anything when it comes to how much enjoyable this movie is. It is one of the best romcoms I've seen, and in my top 3 among 60s romcoms. Sure, it contains many clichés, but why should that be a bad thing if the result is this good? It's funny, and by that I mean funnier than others of its genre. Despite us being able to predict how it ends, its events are paradoxically rarely ever predictable. It's like Doris Day and Cary Grant were made for their roles, as each of them displays the qualities the writers must've imagined for their characters. That Touch of Mink could easily stand next to other Day movies, such as Pillow Talk. It's a must-watch. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Goofy, sweet, charming and sarcastic. Well written smart banter without Neal Simon. Gig Young & Audrey Meadows are humorous in supporting roles. Some would say dated, naive, or cheesy but would be judging by present standards. Not one bit of "edginess" and I love the fun diversion. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Many love Doris Day and Carey Grant, but this is one of their worst films. Ages quite horribly and makes women the butt of the joke. When a woman doesn't put out, she's "not a real woman" (according to Doris Day's character) and it's many moments like this that just make the movie greatly unappealing. I did not grow up in the 60s, but I can't even imagine many people approving of this movie even then. Other than the sexism and homophobia, this film also plainly doesn't work as a film. Carey Grant's character is flat and I couldn't tell you a thing about him except that he's rich and likes women. Doris Day is scene as overbearing and a "loose canon" and is really there to just have Carey Grant roll his eyes at. There are so many better classic films, I recommend avoiding this one. (This film made me want to write my first review. I think that says a lot.) Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review steve d The rare Grant film that has not aged well. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member No chemistry exists between Day and Grant. This is not a true depiction of life in 1962. A 38 year old woman is still "saving herself" for marriage and being pursued by a 60 year old man? This is borderline creepy and would have been creepy when it was made. Back then, you'd just smile and think how stupid the actors were in performing these parts. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
