Some Like It Hot (1959)
There are some classic gems on Netflix and this is one of them. It was voted the best comedy of all time by the American Film Institute a few years ago and its lore has only grown with time. It starts with two musicians Jerry (Jack Lemmon) and Joe (Tony Curtis) who get caught up in the Valentine’s Day massacre and try to give the slip to the mobsters on their trail by disguising themselves as two members of an all-female jazz band.
Moving cross country in America, both men have their hands full trying to keep up the farce; Curtis’s character decides to occasionally disguise himself as a millionaire in order to woo voluptuous torch singer Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe), while Jerry elects to marry a real millionaire who actually believes he’s a woman. “Nobody’s perfect” goes the film’s most famous line, but Curtis, Lemmon and Monroe come close here.
