Classic comedy. One of the all-time funniest and one of my personal favorites.

Despite being on so many "funniest films of all time" lists, I didn't find this film laugh out loud funny. It's more of an enjoyable romp that derives its humor from the energy and camraderie of Curtis & Lemmon. Great final line, though.

'Some Like It Hot's' efficacious implementation of bafflingly intricate and frenetically timed logistics should instill such a cathartic laughter in a viewer that the cumbrances of their ordinary lives should be immediately forgotten. If they do not, however, it may then be reasonably surmised that that viewer's sense of humour is almost as ordinary as their humdrum existences.

Maybe if I was alive in '59 it would've been funnier, but I just didn't laugh a whole lot. Even though this is still considered one of the funniest movies ever, I personally don't think it has aged well.

"Some Like It Hot" by Yojimbo

A pair of musicians witness a mob execution and so go into hiding disguised as women in an all girl band in Florida. Billy Wilder made his name making a variety of black hearted satires, but here we find him at his least cynical. It's one of those types of film they just don't make any more as the brilliant double act of womanising cad Curtis and sidekick Lemmon see how the other half live. Their bickering and banter obviously owes a lot to Hope and Crosby and the gender swap is done with real subtlety and sophistication making for a host of hilarious one-liners that come so thick and fast it's easy to miss some of them first time around. Marilyn Monroe was never more appealingly vulnerable, Lemmon shows his mastery of comic timing and Curtis spends much of the film doing a hilarious Cary...

Some Like it Hot review

Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) accidentally witnessed the 1929 Saint Valentine's Day massacre, was spotted by "Spats" Columbo (George Raft). Both men dress as ladies and joined an all-female band. Joe falls for "Sugar Kane" (Marilyn Monroe) while an old millionaire named Osgood Fielding III (Joe E. Brown) enjoys the company of Daphne (who is Jerry). Wonderful set locations, costumes, screenplay and cinematography. The multi-character portrayals of Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon were effective and believable. Themes of friendship, trust, deceit and integrity were well displayed. In the words of Osgood Fielding III - "Well, nobody's perfect." In my opinion, Some Like it Hot is a rare comedy that is picture perfect from the plot, wardrobe, to directing and the acting.
