The only rom-com that I actually like,
This review is from: The Apartment [DVD] (DVD)
The only way this great film could be improved is if it was in colour, which I feel would give visually a more warm feel to it. Lemmon, fast becoming my favourite actor the more I see of him in films that were made before I was even born, again delivers a first class performance. Shirley MacLaine is beguiling as the love interest of the very much used by his work colleagues Jack Lemmon. Fred MacMurray as Lemmon's boss, gives great support that adds up to the comedic talents of Lemmon.
If you are like me and are usually utterly opposed to the dross that passes for comedy in modern rom-com films, don't be put off by this Billy Wilder classic. This is a great endearing film that everyone should see for the talents of the fine actors/actress listed above.
I admit to being biased becaused I love anything with Jack Lemmon in it, but this film is truely not one to be missed.
