Some Like It Hot, and some like it hotter, and with Marilyn Monroe in the lead you can bet there’s plenty to go around. Some Like It Hot is a fine comedy with great talent and wit galore.
Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon are a regular Laurel and Hardy, the way they bounce off each other in this picture. The comedic tension and humor really picks up when the two begin competing against each other vying for Munroe’s affection. Munroe herself is sultry and gives a surprisingly good performance. Normally known as a sex symbol, she is an accomplished actress, and she shows it here.
I’m sorry I couldn’t say anything more about this movie, other than it’s good, it’s hilarious, and it’s effective. If you’re in the mood for comedies, give this one a go.
Arbitrary Rating: 8/10
