Sandra Dee was announced for the lead role in September 1960.
The Chicago Tribune called it "calculated cuteness... relieved by a likeable performance from Sandra Dee." The Washington Post called it "infinitely inferior to the first Tammy, everything about the film is false, especially the aggressive Sandra Dee, whose primpsy whimsy wardrobe cannot disguise the acquisitive gaze in her give-away eyes."
