Let's Make Love is a breezy comedy about an off Broadway musical production. Jean-Marc Clement (Yves Montand) is the richest man in the world and looking for someone who loves him instead of his money. He reads in Variety he is to be satirized in the new production and tries out for the part. The producers hire him, unaware of his real identity. He hires Bing Crosby, Milton Berle and Gene Kelly to coach him for the role. Amanda (Marilyn Monroe) is the poor aspiring actress who lands a part in

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.
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.
Monroe is typically captivating even if this isn't vintage Cukor.
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).
If you can live with the plot making absolutely no sense, then you should be able to handle this uneven attempt at being a screwball comedy.
Marilyn's Heart Belongs to Daddy number (and her practice leotard) are worth the price of the video.
Benefits from graceful direction by the great George Cukor.
Let's Make Love doesn't come close to Marilyn Monroe's best moments, but those who like corny old romances could certainly do worse.
