Movie time!

I finally started watching the AFI movies. There's a lot of them, and I'd better get cracking!

(#22) Some Like It Hot (1959): starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon
This was my first Marilyn Monroe movie! I like old movies and have watched a few, but they've all seem to star Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, or Audrey Hepburn. It is about 2 musicians, Joe and Jerry, who witness a massacre, and try to hide from the Chicago mob by joining an all-female band disguised as women. Both the men fall for Sugar, the lead singer, but of course, can't act on their feelings (they're supposed to be girls!).

I liked this movie! I was pleasantly surprised that Sugar had a sweet personality (haha, puns). I really was expecting her to be an over-the-top sexy bombshell. Also, the movie made me go "waiiiiit a minute" multiple times! It was clever and had plenty of sexual innuendo.

Sorry for the short review today, I've got to back to the library and get more movies!


  1. Can you believe I have never seen it? I will have to check it out now, thanks for the review! :) Enjoy all the movie watchin!

  2. I know! There's a LOT of movies I haven't seen either. Like the matrix, or terminator, much to my co-workers surprise.
