The Seven Year Itch Reviews

January 23, 2013
Despite the script's cleverness, the presence of Tom Ewell, who is a first rate comedian and Oscar Homolka, who has long been a first rate actor, the entire film continually misses fire and fizzles out, like defective fireworks.
August 15, 2007
Although it was directed by Billy Wilder, this 1955 CinemaScope classic sometimes seems presided over by Frank Tashlin, with its satire of 50s puritanism and its use of wimpy Tom Ewell.

Monroe flaunts her attributes too blatantly, and seems less human because of it, while George Axelrod's play, fresh and risqué in the '50s, now appears a little obvious and over-plotted.
March 15, 2007
Ruined by too much interference from insiders and outsiders.

One of Marilyn Monroe's indispensable films.

What counts is that laughs come thick and fast, that the general entertainment is light and gay.

So arresting is Monroe's presence that when she's not on-screen, we wait impatiently, wondering, Where have you gone, Mrs. DiMaggio?

Marilyn Monroe is a temptress in this delightful comedy.

I find this movie to be a definitive Marilyn Monroe movie that happened to also have a pretty witty script.

The Seven Year Itch is certainly a key film for the classic Monroe image...

Monroe takes over the movie the minute she appears onscreen, wearing impossible outfits and telling the most ridiculous stories with the lightest touch.
