"Nobody's perfect" is the last line. Wilder, Lemmon, Curtis and Monroe come pretty close.

Here is one of those movies that persists beyond the implications of a mere time frame, resonating with audiences like a very fine wine.

Re-viewing Some Like It Hot is invariably a rewarding experience, not because it is a great comedy but because it is a great movie.

The preeminent comedy of anima...effervescent and breezily paced, from the car-chase opening to the big finish capped with one of the all-time-great punchlines. [Blu-ray]

Lemmon digs out most of the laughs in the script. As for Marilyn, she's been trimmer, slimmer and sexier in earlier pictures.

One of the wildest romantic farces ever.

The film's final line is legendary, though I have a soft spot for Jerry's description of a sashaying Sugar: "Look at that! Look how she moves! That's just like Jell-O on springs!"

Pictures like this, with a sense of humor that is as broad as it can be sophisticated, come along only infrequently.

In many ways, the ultimate Billy Wilder film -- replete with breathless pacing, transvestite humor, and unflinching cynicism.

Wilder gave his audience credit for being as smart as he was, and, boy, they don't make 'em like that anymore, but they oughtta.
