Editorial Reviews

Rock Hudson and Doris Day are together again! Jerry Webster (Hudson) and Carol Templeton (Day) are rival Madison Avenue advertising executives who each dislike each other's methods. After he steals a client out from under her cute little nose, revenge prompts her to infiltrate his secret "VIP" campaign in order to persuade the mystery product's scientist to switch to her firm. Trouble is, the product is phony and the "scientist" is Jerry, who uses all his intelligence and charm to steal her heart in this outrageous comedy of mistaken identity, co-starring the ever-delightful Tony Randall.

5.0 out of 5 stars DAY AND HUDSON'S LOVELY "LOVER" October 30, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The Winter of 1961-62 was a lot warmer thanks to the delightful onscreen antics of Doris Day, Rock Hudson, and Tony Randall, the triumvirate who had made a blockbuster called "Pillow Talk" a couple of years earlier. Reteamed in "Lover Come Back", they scored an even greater success this time out. Thanks to a very funny and sharp script penned by Stanley Shapiro, who won an Oscar for "Talk", and aided by Delbart Mann's smooth direction, "Lover" was the third biggest moneymaking film of 1962, right behind "That Touch of Mink", another Day/Shapiro/Mann collaboration.
Seen today, "Lover Come Back" remains an uproarious comedy about the advertising trade in New York City. It's romantic, for sure, but it's also insightful, slightly satiric, and very sexy.
Doris and Rock play competing advertising agents. She's professional and dedicated, he's unscrupulous, if necessary, seemingly willing to do anything to land an account. When they finally meet, he pretends to be someone else and therefore she falls in love with him. When she realizes who he really is, the romance flounders, briefly, before a "bundle of joy" brings things to a happy conclusion.
Despite decades of crass comments from pundits purporting to know what they're talking about, Doris Day does not play a virgin. As in "Pillow Talk" and multiple other films, she plays a highly successful career woman who refuses to become a "notch" on some man's belt. There is never an indication that she is an "innocent", merely that she will not sleep with a man who has attempted to dupe, deceive, lie to or manipulate her. In "Lover", she offers to teach Hudson how to make love, clearly indicating that she is experienced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lover Come Back March 13, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There is nothing better than classic Doris Day and Rock Hudson, but throw in Tony Randall, and you can count on a winner. The threesome has appeared together before, but it never gets tiring. One thing that surprised me was that this movie was ahead of its time, as you don't find many classics that emphasize sexual relationships. A definite keeper - Many hilarious scenes that will make this movie enjoyable to watch over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite DorisDay,RockHudson,Tony Randall Movie March 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Out of the Three films Doris,Rock,and Tony made together,this is my favorite. I love all three movies,but this one's the best. The ending has got to be the funniest finals of any movie ever made."That's what I call cutting it close." I don't know how they got away with this in 1961. Doris Day has always been my favorite movie star,and I wrote to her when I was a kid,and she sent me a beutifull letter back,signed in Ink. I can still here my grandmother laugh when Doris left Rock at the beach with no clothes on. I also love Tony Randall's performace. He really makes the movie that much special. Donna Douglas has a small part in the movie,along with Edie Adams. Do you beleive that Doris was suppose to do The Graduate,playing Mrs Robinson?What a great change this would have been for the actress. At least we have all of her fantastic musicals and comedies to look at forever.There will never be another Doris Day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Three April 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
As much as I LOVE "Pillow Talk" and enjoy "Send Me No Flowers," this is my favorite, and I think the best, of the three Doris Day-Rock Hudson films. The humor is sharper and bolder, and the pay-off punch lines even better ("And I'm taking you in," Rock ironically tells Doris as he plots to reel her in.) Tony Randall is an even funnier foil here as the ineffectual boss than he was as the "best friend" in the other two films. As always the the sets as lush, the costumes stylish, and the color is lavish. What a treat even 37 years after its release to watch this old-fashioned sex comedy! As they say, "they just don't make'em like this anymore!" More's the pity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doris and Rock are at it again. Can "Vip" save them? February 20, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Once again the teamwork of Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall are cast together again after the success in the comedy film, Pillow Talk (1959). This time it's rock that needs the tomato juice after being out all night, still in his tuxedo, he was driven right to work. Rock has an agency's account to nab, so of course a little nightclub dinner and party is in order. Meanwhile, Doris Day is trying to get the same agency's account with true professionalism. When she finds out she's to late for the account because of Rock's presentation of a "Roman orgy", she is appauld. Here is where Tony Randall comes in. He gives Rock a talking to about his methods and to apologize to Doris. Phone bantering goes on between the two. Rock doesn't apologize but insults her purity. The war is on. Rock invents a fictional product called "Vip" and uses Edie Adams as a "vip" girl for fake commercials. When Doris finds out about "Vip" thruogh Edie's "good medal of conduct" at the executive meeting, she tries to get that account too, with the help of Ann B. Davis (Bob Cummings Show, Brady Bunch). Isn't that a beautiful top Doris Day is wearing just before the shocker? Nice fur coat Rock Hudson is wearing. Cast also includes: Jack Albertson (Willy Wonka..., Chico and the Man) , Donna Douglas (Beverly Hillbillies) and Ted Bessel (That Girl) as an Elevator Boy. Doris day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall reteamed once again in Send Me No Flowers (1964).
