Having just rewatched Psycho, this was kind of odd timing. I vaguely remember being shocked at how much I loved this when I first watched it as I didn’t think movies that old could be so funny. On my last rewatch I was worried I wouldn’t like it as much, but I loved it even more. Nothing has changed since the last watch.

I think Monroe is an awful actress and is highly overrated in every respect, but she is quite tolerable and even funny at times in this film (and basically this film only). I love Jack Lemmon, he’s in top form in everything he does and this is no different, and he’s just adorable. I’m not a huge Tony Curtis fan but he is also good here.

It’s fast-paced, witty and never really falters. I did start to lose interest near the end but I think it was because I was getting very tired.
