Comedy: Different or the Same?

During Final Exams the class will watch the movie “Some Like it Hot” (1960).

You heard about this movie during the Billy Wilder PowerPoint. It is most often listed as the number one funniest or best American comedy movie.

As you watch the movie write a QuickWrite on these two questions:

  1. Tell about something in “Some Like it Hot” that is SIMILAR to recent comedy movies you’ve seen (name recent movie(s).
  2. Tell about something in “Some Like it Hot” that is DIFFERENT from recent comedy movies.

Be specific. Describe a specific scene and what made it a comedy/funny scene.
