About the Movie
Two musicians, Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon), are thrown out of work when the speakeasy they performed in-owned by mob boss Spats Columbo (George Raft)-is raided by Prohibition agent Mulligan (Pat O'Brien) and closed. Finally, after three long weeks of unemployment, Joe and Jerry get a gig in Urbana. But first they must get their car out of hock...at the garage chosen by the mob for the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Hiding behind their car, Joe and Jerry witness the whole thing. Targeted for extinction, Joe and Jerry never show their faces again. There is an opening for a saxophonist and a bass player in an orchestra managed by one Sweet Sue (Joan Shawlee)...an all-woman orchestra. They get the job! On the way to Florida, they meet Sweet Sue's lead singer, Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Some Like It Hot does cool off considerably now and again, but Mr. Wilder and his carefree clowns keep it crackling and funny most of the time.
Fresh: Lemmon digs out most of the laughs in the script. As for Marilyn, she's been trimmer, slimmer and sexier in earlier pictures.
Fresh: Pictures like this, with a sense of humor that is as broad as it can be sophisticated, come along only infrequently.
Fresh: The funniest comedy I've seen in years.
A great classic
"Well nobody's perfect." This movie's famous line definatly does not fit with the storyline of this movie. Because "Some Like it Hot" is a perfect movie. This movie is a great classic, and should be viewed by everyone. The comedic pairing of Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis is fantastic, and adding in the beauty of Marilyn Monroe makes this movie a must see. True comedy without sex, swears, or drugs involved.
