Some Like It Hot (1959)

If you likeHot Chicks, I Love You Man, The Other Guys

Synopsis– Two broke musicians (Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon) accidentally witness a mob hit and have to dress in drag and hide out in an all-girls band. To make matters worse, one of them falls in love with the band’s singer/ukulele player (Marilyn Monroe). Yes, it IS that outrageous. But in a good way! Watch as the pair try to evade the mob and find true love, all at the same time.

Why it’s better- I’ll admit it up front: I am not a Marilyn Monroe fan. At all. But I will admit that she is tolerable in this flick, and with Tony Curtis being so smokin’ hot and Jack Lemmon being so endearing/hilarious/out-of-control, the movie manages to make me forget my biases. Also, it’s the AFI pick for funniest movie of all time…so it’s probably worth a watch, eh?
