Always a treat to watch Marilyn Monroe when she is in top form which is the case here. This is a good comedy with top notch dialogue and wit, but is it really so funny to see two men dressed up as women and being chased by other men now that the political climate has changed and cross-dressing men and homosexuality is allowed? Well, at least the movie has more power in Russia these days I guess.
3.5 stars. This film holds up nicely. The performers, especially Lemmon, are wonderful. The score is well chosen. The movie has a great look. However, it might be a trifle overrated. As delectable as Monroe is here, she is even better in "The Prince and The Showgirl," her apotheosis.
Divertente, brillante e considerata l'epoca d'uscita, incredibilmente avanti coi tempi. Meravigliosamente bilanciato l'equilibrio fra la comicità sempreverde di Lemmon e la sensualità dirompente della Monroe, la regina delle dive negli anni '50, talmente catalizzante che ruba la scena anche senza essere 'sta gran attrice. Nulla è forzato e tutto strappa un goduto sorriso, ho amato alla follia gli ultimi 30 secondi.
This movie will have you laughing until you can laugh no more! As a young man of the 2000s, sometimes old movies are hard to get into, but I loved it! There were some unexpected twists and turns that kept you on the edge of your seat. The acting was incredible. From their voices to their physicality to the fact that they were able to convince others that they were women, it was great. Remember to watch until the end.
