THEY SAY: “Some Like It Hot is effortlessly fluent, joyous and buoyant: a high-concept comedy that stays as high as a kite, while other comedies flag. “Nobody’s perfect” is the last line. Wilder, Lemmon, Curtis and Monroe come pretty close” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)
WE SAY: Recently topping a BBC Culture poll of the greatest comedies ever made, it’s easy to see why Some Like It Hot is a classic – with three brilliant central performances, it delivers on several levels and easily stands up to multiple repeat viewings.
