Some like it hot is a rom/com with Marilyn Monroe as the supporting actress.Not a bad fim over all,some great jokes and Lemmon is spot on.It’s set during the prohibition in Chicago in 1939 i think.There’s a scene at the beginning that i completely forgot about where there’s a high speed chase involving a coffin full of whiskey that gets shot up.For a few minutes i thought maybe there was two films called Some Like it Hot.The two main characters witness a gang executing about 6 guys from a rival gang who ratted him out to the cops and got his speak easy shut down.The guys then go on the run to Florida.The guys are musicians and dress as women to join the band in Florida.One of the guys falls in love with the singer/ukelele player (Monroe) and there’s a lot of clothes switching and hi-jinks ala Mrs. Doubtfire.
