"Some Like it Hot" is packed with laughs. Marilyn Monroe has the part of a lifetime as Sugar Kane Kowalczyk. As a singer in a all female band she soon has two new band members in Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis. They go by the names of Josephine and Daphne and dress as women and talk like women to avoid being recognized by the mob. I can't say more than that for fear of ruining the movie for you. Director Billy Wilder put together a great cast with George Raft, George Kennedy and Joe E. Brown. The later really has some great moments in the film. The script was wonderfully written by Bill Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond. Cinematographer Charles Lang had his work cut out for him with scenes on a train. Watch for Marilyn singing such songs as "Running Wild", "I'm Through With Love" and "I Want to Be Loved By You". It is a wild madcap comedy that is in a class of it's own. Few comedies will ever be a funny as "Some Like It Hot"!

Thirty pounds overweight (supposedly pregnant during shooting) and Monroe was still about the hottest (and thanks to the genuineness of her delivery, in my opinion, also the best) actress of all time. There also aren’t many comedies funnier than Some Like it Hot and it holds up to repeat viewings amazingly well.

I love old movies and this movie did not disappoint. Jack Lemmon is great in this movie and although at times, the characters were a little cheesy, the overall story and comedy was good.

My favorite Marilyn Monroe movie so far (haven't seen 'em all though). Very funny and entertaining. Definitely worth watching!

Such a Marilyn Monroe classic. probally her best film ever.

Funniest drag movie ever. Marilyn was a real pain in the ass on the set. The boys save it.

One of the great comedies! Curtis and Lemmon are unbeatable (in and out of drag!). Monroe is charming, and the great George Raft, plays a serious gangster, just like he did so many times in the "old days"! Superb!

Curiously over hyped as the funniest movie of all time by the American Film Institute, the film is nevertheless charming, highlighted by Curtis and Lemmon's quick and witty performances and the oozing radiance of Monroe.
