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

Rating: 4/4 -- 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!" Full Review

5 stars out of 5 -- Brilliant performances, wondrous comic timing and the greatest pay-off line ever written: this one’s still red hot.

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

Product Description:

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.


Production Notes:

  • SOME LIKE IT HOT was an original selection to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1989.
  • The original title was NOT TONIGHT, JOSEPHINE.
  • Billy Wilder briefly considered Frank Sinatra for one of the lead roles.
