Critic Reviews for Let's Make Love

All Critics (13)

  • Monroe is simply terrific, while Milton Berle is a riot in his glorified cameo. If only a more vibrant and charismatic leading man had been chosen!

  • 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.

    Not a big fan of the story but the musical numbers are awesome.

    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.

    let's make love is possibly marilyns best. it's at least in my top 3 along with river of no return and gentlemen prefer blondes. it's solid from the start all the way down to the little details such as bing crosby making a five minute appearance to train our billionaire protagonist how to dance. the support from tony randall as clements assistant coffman and wilfred hyde-white as george welch. it begins with marilyn dancing and singing seductively in some black tights and a big blue cardigan of all things unsexy, but it's so memorable because of it. just goes to prove some will look good in anything... but then there's so many funny parts. focusing on marilyn again here but there's one point where she just quips "when you get up on that stage just think to yourself i'm a louse, i'm a louse, i'm a louse" when she's encouraging him to play himself to his full potential little realising he actually is him. sound confusing? just watch it! marilyn at her most theatrical!
