Critic Reviews for Let's Make Love

All Critics (12)

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).

Cinema em Cena

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

Not a success for all involved - but mainly Cuckor and Monroe. The movie is slow paced, sloppy, and at times just plain uninteresting. Monroe botches her way through musical numbers, and this being the end of her career, you can see the spiraling down. It appears as if neither Cuckor nor Monroe had any interest in the film.

Though the gags are great, the film just doesn't flow that well - in spite of a highly talented cast & crew.

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.
