    Some Like It Hot stars Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Munroe in a cross-dressing farce that's a hoot and a half. It's very full narrative, with Prohibition era gangsters looking to kill two musicians who must therefore join an all-girl band to hide out. Both initially fall for Munroe's ditzy vamp, though only Curtis manages to entice her as a man, conning her into believing he's a yachting millionaire who needs her special brand of Viagra, while Lemmon must settle for an actual millionaire who's fallen for his/her gams... This is now an iconic film for the LGBT community, isn't it? It ought to be! Having been made in 1959, you'd think its gender politics would be just shy of black face, but not at all. The men respect their new genders (despite acting like lascivious teenagers) and the sapphic/homoerotic shenanigans are treated as harmless whimsy, not something to be disgusted by. The same can be said for the less-than-honest seduction scenes and the gangland killing. A very funny script by director Billy Wilder that had me chuckling frequently. 3 years 11 months ago
