5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest comedy of XX century June 4 2004
Format:DVD
Billy Wilder shows us once more his great skills as director. His versatileness allowed going from the drama (Sunset Boulevard) to the reflexive Stalag 17 and create a classic film noir as Witness for prosecution.
In this case, Wilder throws his glove to the sand about two musicians (Lemonn and Curtis) who are witeness of a multiple murder between members of the mob. This starting point will origin a progressive mistake comedie when they decide escape from a sure death, dressing femenine clothes.
Never before in the cinema there has been such a lot of laughable situations and suggestive jokes. Remember the presence of the eternally unforgettable Marilyn Monroe, who is the perfect balance in this movie.
Nobody is perfect is one of the most famous statements endings of any picture ever.
Please, acquire this one. Lemonn is fine and Curtis is in his best achievement.
Dazzling script and brilliant direction.
An eternal gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands at the top of American Comedies June 2 2004
Format:DVD
Jack Lemmon was a great actor in dozens of great films, but Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis were never better than in this Billy Wilder classic. Ms. Monroe and Mr. Curtis share a scene on a yacht that is both funny and guaranteed to raise the pulse of any heterosexual man with a heartbeat. Tony Curtis also does a great Cary Grant impersonation when he is trying to woo Ms. Monroe, and not wearing drag to avoid the Chicago gangsters that have tracked them to Miami. The story is absolutely ridiculous, but the cast runs with it with so much gusto that you can set aside any thoughts about how realistic the story seems to just enjoy the witty dialogue and the hilarious situations that these memorable and likable characters find themselves in. Only recommended for those who'd like a good laugh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great slapstick comedy May 7 2004
By Lealing
Format:DVD
Joe and Jerry (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) are on the run from the chicago mob after witnessing the St Valentine's Day massacre. They decide to disguise themselves and dress up as women adopting the names Josephine and Daphne and join an all female band heading for a gig in Florida, as saxophone and double bass players. During the train ride to Florida they meet the lead singer of the band Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe). Joe falls for Sugar who has a thing for saxophone players and is a loser in love.
Once in Florida Joe dresses up as a millionare playboy and adopts the voice of Cary Grant to pursue Sugar, giving himself the name Shell Oil Junior! Meanwhile, Daphne/Jerry is hotly pursued by Joe E Brown a millionaire playboy who's been divorced three times and is looking for wife number four. Little do Joe and Jerry know that the mobsters have also arrived in Florida for a convention.
This is a wonderful fastpace slapstick comedy with a couple of wonderful songs sung by Marilyn Monroe including "I want to be loved by you" and "Running Wild". Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon are a scream dressed up in drag and Marilyn Monroe is sensual as the ditzy Sugar Kane. The three main leads interact well with each other despite rumours that there were problems between Monroe and Curtis on the set during shooting. A must see for all film buffs and lovers of romantic comedy films.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Nobody's Perfect"- But This One Comes Close Nov. 16 2003
By Sarah
Format:DVD
Famed director Billy Wilder once said "Movies should be like amusement parks, people should go to have fun". With "Some Like It Hot", one of his best and well-known films, he certainly created an amusement park of laughs, tears, and excellent performances by its three stars. Set in Chicago in the 1920's, it follows the story of desperate musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) who after witnessing a gang bang shooting organized by powerful mob boss Spats Columbo, run for their lives. Their disguise? As "Josephine" and "Daphne", the newest additions to Sweet Sue's All-Girl Band en-route to sunny Florida. While adjusting to their new-found femininity, they meet Sugar Kane (a dazzling Marilyn Monroe), the band's lead singer and resident party girl who always gets "the fuzzy end of the lollipop". Such mayhem ensues on the un-forgettable trip as Joe and Jerry run from the mob, keep up their disguises, and fall in and out of love with women (and men!) under the Florida sun. The Special-Edition DVD includes never-before-seen pictures from behind the scenes, the original press-book gallery, and the trailer, recovered from old film archives. A truly great film, "Some Like It Hot" is sure to keep audiences raving for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comedy that broke some new ground ... Feb. 8 2004
Format:DVD
Of course, everyone knows that a combination of Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Marylin Monroe has the potential to be something special. But, why is this movie worth watching? First off, the movie is genuinely funny with only a small number of laughs coming from silly antics. In this film, Lemon and Curtis provide a fabulous comic balance with the tension needed to make it interesting provided by the presence of Miss Monroe. Billy Wilder was not afraid to introduce the concept of cross-dressing with a purpose. Of course, the movie is first meant to be funny, next a love story and finally a social commentary on the roles we accept due to gender. At the end of the movie you might ask yourself, Do I like it hot?
