Some Like It Hot Reviews

March 21, 2018
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.

The funniest comedy I've seen in years.

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

Everyone has a canonical classic which they just don't get. This one is mine.

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

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

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.

One of Wilder's funniest satires.

Some Like It Hot, long- heralded and starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis. Jack Lemmon and a host of old-timers from the gangster era plus Joe E. Brown, is often funny but not the unalloyed delight it was cracked up to be.

One of the greatest comedies ever.

Some Like It Hot does cool off considerably now and again, but Mr. Wilder and his carefree clowns keep it crackling and funny most of the time.

Wilder's 1959 comedy is one of the enduring treasures of the movies, a film of inspiration and meticulous craft.
