One of the better comedies

Billy WIlder did a fantastic job of directing and creating a very funny and fast moving comedy from the story by Robert Thoeren and Michael Logan, and the screenplay by Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond

His actors are all superb. Notably Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Marylin Monroe and Joe E. Brown.

It kept me entertained and laughing all the way through.

Some like it hot

Not just another Monroe serenading film, this film involves the history of America during the depression period where 2 musicians, Jerry (Jack Lemmon) and Joe (Tony Curtis), was found witness of the Saint Valetine's Day Massacre.
To hide from the Mobs, Jerry and Joe decided to join an all-female band that is heading towards Florida, thus, Jerry changed his pseudonym to Daphne while Joe changes his pseudonym to Josephine.
In the jorney towards Florida, Jerry and Joe are in love with Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe), the troop's ukulele player and vocalist.
After learning that Sugar turns on for men who are rich and wore spectables, Joe immediately stole the manager's baggage.
Towards wooing Sugar, Joe put on the manager's clothing and wore his spectacles, he lied to Sugar that his name is Junior and he is single.
While Sugar got her luck on love, Jerry, also known as Daphne was being wooed by an old millionaire who has several failed marriages, Mr Osgood.
Mr Osgood send an invitations to Daphne to spend a night in his yatch, however, it was being turned down by Joe because he wanted to use Osgood's yatch to charm Sugar.
After dinner, Osgood and Daphne spend the night dancing tango while Joe and Sugar was in Osgood's yatch making out.
The next morning, Joe was told that Daphne (Jerry) was engaged to Mr Osgood - he was astounded because he knew that the both of them are male, thus, Jerry wants to contact Mr Osgood to cancel the wedding, but as they reach the lobby for the phone, the Mobs arrive and after some humorous chase, Daphne, Joe and Sugar races for Mr Osgood's Yatch.
As the show was about to end, Daphne (Jerry) confesses to Mr Osgood that he is a man, and Mr Osgood says, "Well, nobody's perfect."
Personally, I think this is a very humorous film, even watching twice or thrice, you won't get sick of it!
