“Nobody’s perfect”. I had to get round to Billy Wilder, and what better movie than the sexually-charged “Some Like It Hot”. Possibly the best comedy ever made, I’m not sure that anyone but Wilder could have pulled this off. A sexy comedy gangster movie where Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon spend most of the movie in drag while on the run from the mob.
It has so many great lines and is incredible entertainment. Marilyn Monroe is just icing on the cake in one of her best performances, hilarious and insanely beautiful at the same time as always, like “jello on springs”. But it’s Lemmon who steals the show.
