Some Like It Hot

5

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. Director Billy Wilder’s two-guys-drag-up-and-dodge-the-mob-by-joining-an-all-girl-band caper (told you it was high concept) unwinds in a welter of beautifully constructed set-pieces and rapid fire one-liners. Stars Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis might have been kept hanging around for hours while Marilyn Monroe powdered her ego, but none of that shows on screen.
