Some Like It Hot (1959)

The two most important things to know about movie critics are:

  • They are extremely intellectual.
  • The only form of comedy they don't consider disgustingly vulgar is when men cross-dress in order to run a scam.

Take a look at any best movie list by professional critics, and the standard cross-dressing scam movies are bound to be there. Drag queen movies don't generally make it because the men have to be cross-dressing due to some situational necessity, not just because they personally like it.

As far as critical-darling cross-dressing movies go, this is the least stupid one, although by Billy Wilder or Jack Lemon standards it's pretty weak.

I really want to like a play that starts with 'I fart at thee', but most of the humour doesn't really hit home.
