No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
An intelligent look at a time when the old guard of tough-talking gumshoes and snappy reporters were about to surrender to a new breed: educated and self-aware men and women.
Brings together journalism and romance into a delicious rather than a nutritious omelet.
Clark Gable (in one of his last parts) and Doris Day may be too old for such fluff, but the innocuous screenplay by Michael and Fay Kanin has some charm and Gig Young is truly funny in his Oscar nominated role.
Inoffensive, but ultimately lame and lacklustre romantic comedy, where all involved have done better.
