If you ask me - This badly dated, 1958, "adult" Comedy/Romance (whose story was, pretty much, just a one-note-joke about identity deception) was so insultingly predictable that, before long, I just couldn't find myself staying in the least bit interested in following its story's contrivances (that were meant to generate laughs) very closely, at all.

Besides Teacher's Pet being way too long (at 120 minutes), I also found its 2, big-name stars, Doris Day (Hollywood's oldest virgin) and Clark Gable (pushing 60 years old) were both grossly miscast for their parts. To me, these 2 seriously lacked the essential chemistry needed to keep the floundering momentum of their trite, little on-screen romance going farther than beyond that of a fizzle and a yawn.

I mean, even that platinum-blond bombshell, Mamie Van Doren (yet another Marilyn Monroe clone), as nightclub performer, Peggy DeFore, doing her "The Girl Who Invented Rock'n'Roll" number, couldn't bring the likes of this decidedly "low-on-laughs" comedy to life.

Sure, Gable is way too old and Doris’ ducktail haircut is a travesty, but they are both quite good here. Honestly, aside from those two drawbacks, this is one of the better Doris Day vehicles.

Not a typical musical/romantic comedy Doris Day film. A witty and intelligent script about the meaning of education. Gig Young is priceless as the perfect, over-achiever boyfriend. Clark Gable is his usual attractive self. A great show with timeless ideas.
