Lover, Don't Bother. Amiable but generally lazy rehash of Pillow Talk with reductive replays of the previous film's already less-than-original plot devices and ploys - rivalry, impersonations, etc. A coarsening of the formula with Day more priggish and Hudson more caddish, often sans shirt. As ever all plot foreplay and no consummation with plenty of exposition leading to a hurried and rather muted finale.
Pilllow Talk-lite, but great fun. Hudson and Day make some great rom-coms together. A bit dated and corny at times, but the chemistry between the 2 and Randall is really quite special. Check out Send Me No Flowers for further proof. Thrill Of It All will always be my fav Day film, probably due to the brilliant writing of Carl Reiner, but this one should not be missed. Solid 4 stars
