Cukor's movie is less successful as a musical than as a star vehicle (one of her very last) for Marilyn Monroe, who is at her sexiest.

Full Review… | June 2, 2011

Cukor ... directs with all the panache of an unwanted contractual obligation. Indeed, Marilyn disliked the script but accepted Let's Make Love to fulfill her Fox contract.

Full Review… | July 26, 2006

Monroe is typically captivating even if this isn't vintage Cukor.

Nitrate Online

Apesar do excesso de números musicais, o filme é leve e divertido, trazendo Marilyn Monroe em uma de suas performances mais sedutoras (em seu penúltimo papel no Cinema).

Audience Reviews for Let's Make Love


This has got to be my least favorite movie starring Marilyn Monroe, mainly because it is a waste of talent. The idea is interesting to a degree, but when your lead character doesn't have charisma and Marilyn is only used as a mannequin it becomes frustrating. I would say that with a better male lead, this might have been amazing, but what's left is a mixed bag. The only real bonus to the movie is seeing Marilyn Monroe in underwear for the majority of her screen time whilst singing about sex.

Marilyn Monroe is underused in this piece and has another lead actor lacking charm. Much like the film "Seven Year Itch" the main character is a creepy guy that questions why viewers should want to watch this story play out. The premise is a good one but the delivery is really bad. Major celebrities make cameo appearances to hold the viewers attention and distract them how bad this film is playing out. It is a failed romance comedy that is worth seeing for the cast involved.

Marilyn at her very best, showing off her acting, singing, and dancing talent. Such a joy to watch. If you haven't seen this one, treat yourself and check it out on Netflix Instant.
