Still brilliant, even after quite a bit of years
on 17 February 2012
Making a sexcomedy like ''the seven year itch'' wouldn't be possible in today's world. In the fifties and sixties, you could tell a story that is basically about cheating, and still get quite a bit of laughs.
What makes this movie so special, is that you really feel like being in a theatre, watching the broadway play. There's over-the-top acting, crazy twists, good dialogue and brilliant physical comedy.
The dvd itselve is ok, not stuffed with unneeded extras, just a documentary about making the movie, which tells you about the problems they had filming with Marilyn, when she just separated from Joe DiMaggio. The adaptation from play to movie, etc... A must have for any movie collector, and a great start to (re)discover classic comedy legends.
