Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Well, nobody's perfect."
Academy Awards 1959 - Best Costume Design (b&w)
...Wilder's 1959 comedy is one of the enduring treasures of the movies, a film of inspiration and meticulous craft...
Monroe's and Lemmon's finest two hours, and Curtis chip in a brutal Cary Grant impression. -- Grade: A-
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. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- "Nobody's perfect" is the last line. Wilder, Lemmon, Curtis and Monroe come pretty close. Full Review
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. Full Review
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. Full Review
...Elegant, sexy, energetic and side-slicingly funny, SOME LIKE IT HOT is the film all high-concept comedies want to be when they grow up...
Billy Wilder's classic comedy stars Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis as a pair of unemployed musicians who inadvertently become witnesses to the St. Valentine Day's Massacre. To escape the wrath of the gangsters, Joe (Curtis) and Jerry (Lemmon) are forced to hit the road in drag, taking the only jobs available with an all-girl band bound for Miami. Enroute, both men fall for lead singer and blond bombshell Sugar Kane, (Marilyn Monroe), but are unable to fulfill their desires for fear of revealing their identity. Joe tries to get around this by adopting a third identity for seduction, that of a shy millionaire who sounds strangely like Cary Grant. Meanwhile Jerry has his own problems, fighting off the advances of Osgood E. Fielding, a real millionaire hypnotized by his/her charms.
