This review is from: Some Like It Hot - Special Edition [DVD]  (DVD)
Some reviewers have waxed lyrical about how this is the best comedy ever made. Lets get one thing straight it's not but it is in the top ten as far as I am concerned.
I watched it again recently and was suprised to notice that Marilyn looked older than I remember (remember she was 33 when she made this) she was playing 25 and didn't quite make it. The strong contrasts in a black and white film did her no favours, that said she still looks stunning and acts very well, especially with Tony Curtis.
Although all the characters in the film are wonderfull, for me it is Tont Curtis doing a fantastic Cary Grant take off that raises this films bar to classic status.
A classic yes, A funny film yes, Worth watching yes. Best comedy ever No.
