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.
3-4. An incredibly fun movie, constantly rolling into tense, suspenseful setups, filled with smart little self-contained setups. On the other hand, I think tackling it with a more high-minded sensibility reveals it to be marred by some dated views on sex, gender, sexuality, etc. The treatment of Sugar is also a pressing issue: she enters a relationship built on lies, she never breaks her cycle, etc. Pretty awful.
