So many reasons exist for repeat viewings of this classic screwball comedy. Consistently nominated funniest film ever with its one-liner filled dialogue, it displays magical on-screen chemistry between the three leads: Marilyn Monroe as the singer/rich husband hunter, and Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis as the musicians who join the girl band to escape the mob. The fuzzy end of the lollipop, Shell oil, that gold dress and an infamous last line: all of these and much more to guarantee some November laughs.
