Our take

One of the defining screwball comedies, this classic from Billy Wilder notably contributed to the downfall of Hollywood’s Hays Code. Starring Marilyn Monroe alongside Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, the film’s charming cast matches a perfectly executed madcap script, making audiences howl to this day.
