Movie Review: Some Like it Hot (1959)

Recently, Alison and I watched another one of my favorite old movies, Some Like it Hot, which stars Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe. I must admit that I the film wasn't as good as I remember it. Here're my thoughts.

What I liked:
  • The cast did a good job. I especially enjoyed Jack Lemmon's performance, as usual.
  • Some of the gags are quite funny.
  • The score really added to the film.
What I disliked:
  • Some of the dialog is stilted and awkward.
  • Several plot points strain the viewer's credulity.
Overall, I give it 7.0 out of 10. It's an entertaining but flawed film.
