Pillow Talk ★★★★

I knew I'd enjoy this once the intro music started playing. It's a cheesy love-hate romance comedy that works and deserves its title as one of the best classic comedies from the 1950s.

Rock Hudson and Doris Day are an iconic duo that really work well together. Day's comedic timing mixed with Hudson's charm really lights up this blandly set Cinemascope feature (but Day's apartment is to die for). The manner in which they discussed sex, pushed the censors and was way ahead of its time.

This is definitely a feel-good movie that I'll revisit on dull, rainy days.
