If A Man Answers Review


Good
Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin were always the poor man's screwball couple -- but the acquit themselves just fine in If a Man Answers, a corny comedy about love and such. Dee nabs confirmed bachelor Darin -- then turns him into "the marrying kind" by using a handbook meant to train dogs. Eventually, his eye strays, and she concocts a faux beau (Cesar Romero) to send her flowers and "call her" every night. The subterfuge falls apart in the end, as the film turns into a complete and utter farce. Frequently funny, it's still not anywhere near a classic due to its trite plotting.

Come September Review


Good
Is there irony in Rock Hudson zipping about on a scooter in an attempt to protect the virtue of a gaggle of American girls being pursued by four horny guys? (Of note: Sandra Dee is one of the girls, and Bobby Darin is one of the guys, and this is where they met.) The convoluted romantic comedy has Hudson as a wealthy American who spends his Septembers at his plush Italian villa. He arrives early this year, only to find his business partner has turned the place into a hotel from October to August. A romance (with the lovely Gina Lollobrigida) ensues, and the younger kids prove they can find a little love in the sun amongst all the good times. Silly and unfulfilling, it's nonetheless a reasonably good time.
