"Nobody's perfect."

Billy Wilder became forever famous for his classics; Some Like It Hot is one of those memorable, timeless, unforgettable films that has lost very little of its original appeal. Wilder has crafted a risqué, gender-binding comedy rich in sexual innuendo, steamy seductions, and spoofs of gender stereotypes.

The very straightforward plot follows two ... read more

Being a movie from the late 50's, with it's screwball comedy centering on the now-over-used theme of cross dressing men, you'd think that Some Like It Hot would've gone cold by now.
And yet, in large part due to Billy Wilder's sharp-edged yet still slapstick script, it hasn't.
And let's not forget that adding fuel to fire, as always, is Marilyn Monroe. Even through modern eye... read more

I actually already saw this flick but it was such a long time ago, I thought it was really time for a re-watch. The first time I saw it, I must have been a teenager and, even though I did like it, I can’t say it really blew me away. For many, it is considered one of the greatest comedies ever made and it has obviously become an inspiration for many other features, especially the ones about men d... read more

Movie Reviews (501-550) (50 movies items)

" Always a treat to watch Marilyn Monroe when she is in top form which is the case here. This is a good comedy with top notch dialogue and wit, but is it really that funny to see two men dressed up as guys and being chased by other men anymore? It feels dated now as this film's political uncorrectness has now started to become correct and one can see men dressed as women everywhere."

"29.6. Muistan keskustelun Mansessa, jossa ystäväni hämmästeli, ettemme nimimerkki kurkkuharjan kanssa olleet nähneet Piukkoja Paikkoja. Nyt mitä ilmeisimmin toverini kanssa olemme molemmat korjanneet tämän puutoksen. Onhan se hassua, kun miehet pukeutuu naisiksi. Listalin mielestä elokuva ei missään nimessä ole kolmen ja puolen tähden arvoinen, koska lukuisista yrityksistä huolimatta onnistuin vasta tänään saamaan tuon pisteytyksen rekisteriin."
