Ever since I got old enough to realize that Adam Sandler isn't funny I've had a troubled relationship with comedy, because I've found many of the most acclaimed classic comedies to be overrated too (my journey through Preston Sturges' filmography yielded a couple of gems but a number of highly rated films that I didn't think too much of). It's a hard genre, in my opinion, and I find that I generally prefer drama. This is one of the classic comedies I've seen that really delivers. This is the first movie I've seen with Marilyn Monroe in a lead role (she was in All About Eve in a small role), and she's delightful, as are Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.
