      James Jackson Times (UK) Nobody’s perfect, as the film’s immortal closing line has it, but some comedies are. Aug 4, 2022 Full Review Jake Cole Slant Magazine Kino gives Billy Wilders racy comic masterpiece its best-ever home video presentation, highlighting the films visual beauty alongside the taut perfection of its screenplay. Feb 11, 2022 Full Review Jack Moffitt Hollywood Reporter Some Like It Hot is another supersonic, breakneck, belly-laugh comedy that should be a block-busting bonanza at the box office. Apr 2, 2020 Full Review Peter Piatkowski PopMatters Jack Lemmon's judgment of Marilyn Monroe's comedic brilliance is validated on the silver screen. Mar 2, 2024 Full Review Jet Staff Jet Magazine Probably one of the year’s best prescriptions for banishing the blues is a rollicking new motion picture entitled Some Like It Hot. Jan 16, 2024 Full Review Moira Walsh The Catholic World Some Like It Hot is the wildest and wooliest comedy since Preston Sturges left Hollywood and the Marx Brothers disbanded as a team... Director (and co-author) Billy Wilder is one of the best in the business and knew exactly what he was doing. Nov 28, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
