This movie has been held as one of the wildest romantic farces ever.
Here’s a review for parents:
Parents need to know that Some Like It Hot is a classic black-and-white comedy. Everything is played for laughs — from the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, in which gangland hoodlums execute seven other thugs with machine guns, to the broad gender-bending humor that finds the two male heroes masquerading as female musicians for most of the film. Marilyn Monroe as Sugar is at her most voluptuous; clothes are revealing; leering at women is a primary male activity; and attempts at seduction move the plot along. But the only sexual activity is some passionate kissing. There’s lots of drinking and smoking; Sugar knows she has a problem with alcohol.
