I wouldn't call this 1960 picture one of Billy Wilder's best comedies -- it's drab, sappy, and overlong at 125 minutes.

The Apartment is the kind of unsuccessful picture that nevertheless demonstrates that everyone involved is capable of better work.

It's impossible to feel sympathy for any of The Apartment's characters.

Apollo Guide

This cynical study of office politics and sexual mores by Billy Wilder, despite winning 5 Oscars in 1960, doesn't date well.

...despite all its cynicism, The Apartment still ends on a hopeful note...

Wilder has made some truly great movies, but this one is not the masterpiece we thought it was.

What Culture

Even over a half-century on, The Apartment remains a biting classic due to its modern romantic sensibilities and Lemmon's commanding, thoroughly charming central performance.

When assessing his own work Billy Wilder described The Apartment as being the film with the fewest mistakes. And he is right: it is as near to perfect as is possible.

There is a melancholy gulf over the holidays between those who have someplace to go, and those who do not. The Apartment is so affecting partly because of that buried reason.

With tremendous performances by the two leads (Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine), this is yet another "must see" title to be found on Wilder's resume.

Despite some entertaining moments and a terrific performance by its lead, it's not a perfect film and does have some problems.

Humanism and cleverness age like fine wine, even if served with spaghetti strained with a tennis racket.

Among the funniest films ever to win a Best Picture, this was also risque for its time (and perhaps it is today to some).

Sure it's a bit dated, but that's not the movie's fault. One of Wilder's best films ... and that's saying a whole lot!

Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine shine as two essentially good souls trapped in a tangle of office politics.

In the canon of classics by famed writer/director Billy Wilder, this jewel of a comedy easily stands as one of his most beloved.

Wilder, a bilious and mercurial wit, here becomes a wide-screen master of time ...
