| Do we debate on whether it's believable or achievable?
OK, so we in the 21st century don't judge Sandra Dee's movies too kindly, as she usually played some nubile woman existing only to be cute, and we don't consider it particularly PC. The truth is, most of the teen flicks of the past 25 years haven't been much different, and I for one find "That Funny Feeling" more interesting than many of the teen flicks from my lifetime. True, much of the movie is pretty predictable, with Dee as a working class maid pretending to live in a young businessman's (Bobby Darin) apartment, while he goes along with it; I actually didn't spend much of the movie laughing. But the movie definitely has its moments, namely the telephone booth and the party (some people might even include the shot of Sandra Dee in the bathtub...meow meow).

Obviously, given that during the '60s, we started seeing movies like "Dr. Strangelove" and "The Graduate", this one might seem worthless at best. But, I will say that it does have a certain charm to it. It's not a masterpiece by any stretch, but doesn't pretend to be. Just nice, silly fun. And Sandra Dee is actually kinda hot. Also starring Donald O'Connor, Nina Talbot, Larry Storch, Leo G. Carroll, Robert Strauss, Kathleen Freeman and Arte Johnson.

I bet that somewhere beyond that great sea in the sky, Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin can take comfort knowing that we still remember them, even if it is for something as silly as this.
