22. Some Like It Hot
Some men see a murder so dress up as women and join a band to escape.
What I thought
I really liked the singing in it, and I liked Sugar.
What Mum thought
Mum had seen this one before. "This film is great fun. Lemmon and Curtis both do a superb job in their roles and have a lot of witty lines. I love them as men, as women and Curtis in his Cary Grant millionaire role. Monroe is gorgeous too and perfect for the role of Sugar. It's a real gem and a classic comedy that definitely deserves to be on the list."
What Dad thought
First time for Dad. "My first Monroe film! This was a fantastic comedy, a precursor to films such as Nuns on the Run and Tootsie. I loved this film, another gem found on the AFI list. There were fantastic sets, the dialogue was snappy and hilarious. Marilyn was beautiful and excellently cast as the naive band member with a penchant for sax players."
