Critic Reviews for Let's Make Love

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.

Audience Reviews for Let's Make Love

½

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.
