Some Like It Hot is an irrepressibly romantic farce starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and — in perhaps her finest role — Marilyn Monroe. When Curtis and Lemmon wind up on a mob hit list, they hastily embed themselves in an all-lady band headed to sunny Miami. Always on the take, they soon find their next marks: Curtis poses as an oil heir to woo Monroe, while Lemmon — still in drag — sets his sights on an elderly playboy. However, love has surprises in store for all of them. With extended slapstick sequences, Monroe’s iconic performance of “I Want to Be Loved by You,” and some of the most quotable lines in all of movies, Some Like It Hot was deemed the greatest comedy ever by the American Film Institute.
