    Let's Make Love is a flighty thing, one whose comedy never makes good on the promise of its absolutely loopy prologue, and you're never really going to make me care that he top 1% can't find true love because the money gets in the way. That said, this is all about Marilyn Munroe singing and dancing in the sexiest possible musical numbers, and being gorgeous, innocent and wise besides. I love her in this. Yves Montand is variable as the billionaire playboy trying desperately to pass off as a poor actor so he can get Munroe's attention, funny at times, but the film's fear of making unsympathetic (he is, after all, using his money to trick himself into a girl's pants) often flattens him out. He's too nice and serene to be funny. Fun idea to make him pay for theatrical mentors that are Hollywood stars playing themselves, but the low point must be Milton Berle teaching him comedy. Maybe it's of its time, but I can't imagine anyone thinking Uncle Milton would put this obnoxiously unfunny performance on his reel. But Marilyn! Wow! 5 days 15 hours ago
