A milestone comedy to watch again and again.

Ultimately, it's the whole cast and crew's commitment to an idea that on its face seem so damn silly that makes it work so well.

The film is an outrageous, hilarious, and amazingly unpretentious trip through a funhouse of sexual identities.

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!"

Some Like It Hot was released in 1959 but its effervescence and sparkle are timeless. I guarantee that it will make you laugh out loud.

The pace is fast and the humour -- especially Mr Lemmon's -- is often hilarious. It is pleasant to meet again such old familiars as Mr Raft and Mr Brown; and Miss Monroe, as always, is irresistible.

In terms of comic devices there is very little in the film that is original, but the use of the material is delightful.

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

Brilliant performances, wondrous comic timing and the greatest pay-off line ever written: this one's still red hot.

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 Great American Comedy (if you discount the Marx Brothers).

This is a flawlessly scripted, superbly performed and endlessly witty comedy that deserves its place among the all-time greats.
