Movie: Some Like It Hot (1959)

A deserved classic. For the situation comedy format it manages to not be entirely goofy, although suspension of disbelief is definitely a requirement. As a gender-bending film it has held up remarkably well with time, though the social commentary is dated much of it still works – a tribute to a well-written script. It’s the first Marilyn Monroe movie I’ve seen, and I suspect she may have done herself a disservice by taking the part of the ditzy blonde and acting it well. Jack Lemmon & Tony Curtis are great together, keeping the energy high right through the closing scene.
