Nobody’s perfect, but this film might very well be. After accidentally witnessing a murder, two Chicago musicians (Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis) go on the run from the mob disguised as members of an all-girl band headed to Florida. With gangsters hot on their trail, mayhem ensues as the men try to keep up their gender-bending ruses while growing close to the oh-so-lovely Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe) and a millionaire who can’t seem to take a hint. A true treasure of American cinema and one of the greatest comedies of all time, “Some Like It Hot” proves that director Billy Wilder’s biting wit and cheery cynicism have only gotten better with age.
