When Chicago musicians Joe and Jerry witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a southbound train to Florida, disguised as Josephine and Daphne, the two newest and homliest members of an all-girl jazz band. Their cover is perfect...until a lovelorn singer falls for Josephine, an ancient playboy falls for Daphne and a mob boss refuses to fall for their hoax!

From the beginning of this fast-paced action comedy to the final line by Joe E Lewis, "Nobody's Perfect", this movie will have you in stitches. Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon are out of work musicians who witness a gang slaying in Chicago, during the prohibition era. They are seen and have to flee for their lives. They then dress up as women and join an all girl band, where they meet up with Marilyn Monroe. The movie is an absolute treat of belly laughs and a "must have" in any decent movie collection. My review is based on the VHS copy which I have, but I will definitely get the DVD Special Edition which includes:
"A Look Back" documentary with Leonard Maltin and Tony Curtis
The Sweet Sues Featurette (The All-Girl Band)
Interactive 3-D Hall of Memories Featurette
Widescreen letterbox format
