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

TCM's Essentials: 52 Must See Movies (52 movies items)

"“It’s hard to do justice to the work that Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis did. They do so much of the movie in drag, and they somehow do it without typical cross-dressing jokes that you might expect. There’s wonderful support from some great Hollywood old-timers – George Raft as the villain, Spats, and Joe E. Brown as the millionaire, Osgood Fielding…. Since 1959, the movie has gotten better every year.” -Rob Reiner"
