This movie has dated very well. It's main attractions are still contemporary and accessible (they must've been ahead of their time when the movie first appeared) and the parts that have dated have done so with a quaint old-world style that keeps a modern viewers attention. Still as funny and interesting as ever, and damn Marilyn Monroe is HOT.
Still very funny - one of the great American comedy scripts backed by top acting
Jack Lemmon & Tony Curtis are super funny in the comedy.
I really enjoyed this movie! A classic from vintage cinema
Fabulous! It might be old but it is well worth watching. Funny, well written, well acted - great!
Double entendres and snappy dialogue delivered with precise timing help make Billy Wilder’s fast paced comedy a classic that still makes for excellent viewing today. 1920’s gangland violence and menace combine with ridiculous situations that include racy issues like homosexuality, free love and men in drag. Though the late 50’s American audience was more puritan than now, they and the critics loved the madcap action. It produced terrific performances from stars Tony Curtis, Jack Lemon and especially Marilyn Monroe as sexy singer and ukulele player Sugar Kane. George Raft as gangster Spats Colombo and Joe E. Brown as goofy millionaire Osgood E. Fielding sparkle in smaller roles. It’s fun, funny and farcical--sharply entertaining! Four and a half stars.
My wife realy enjoyed this one,very funny.Ed
Dated but so what!! This movie was a lot of fun. I think Jack Lemmon pretty well stole the show. He really camped it up and was very funny. But everybody in the movie was good value. One of the "must see's"!!!.
Fantastic for a laugh. Why can't they make films like this today?
A lightweight classic but fun, Marilyn Munroe is gorgeous.
Best comedy ever? Quite likely! One of my all-time favourites and the lines and sight gags keep getting funnier - even after dozens of viewings over time.
wonderful and funny and unforgettable and wry. Funny stuff all round.
Almost as good as when I saw it in the 1960's !
Pity about the Black and White, but this is a pricesless and classic
comedy. Probably the first "drag" movie. Curtis and Lemon
really enjoy themselves. Most of us had forgotten that the
fobulous Marilyn Munroe sings. A delicious, retrospective romp!
Wonderful movie, one of Marilyn's best with terrific support from Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. Enjoyed it as much today as I did 30 years ago.
Funny! Funny! Funny! Worth watching just to see Jack Lemmon trying to run in high heels.
they dont make em like this anymore
A Classic Movie That Is A Must See!
