Critic Reviews for Let's Make Love

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (2)

Cukor's old skill is evident in the bits of business he finds for his actors, the touches which build up sympathy, the unobtrusively accurate sense of where to place the camera and how to keep a flow of backstage action and dialogue moving.

Marilyn's Heart Belongs to Daddy number (and her practice leotard) are worth the price of the video.

Monroe is simply terrific, while Milton Berle is a riot in his glorified cameo. If only a more vibrant and charismatic leading man had been chosen!

Most of its musical numbers are letdowns but there is a generous amount of entertainment...

Let's Make Love is a disaster for everyone concerned... It is all a great pity because Miss Monroe has charm, naturalness and a real comedic gift.

Cukor's movie is less successful as a musical than as a star vehicle (one of her very last) for Marilyn Monroe, who is at her sexiest.

Audience Reviews for Let's Make Love

½

This has got to be my least favorite movie starring Marilyn Monroe, mainly because it is a waste of talent. The idea is interesting to a degree, but when your lead character doesn't have charisma and Marilyn is only used as a mannequin it becomes frustrating. I would say that with a better male lead, this might have been amazing, but what's left is a mixed bag. The only real bonus to the movie is seeing Marilyn Monroe in underwear for the majority of her screen time whilst singing about sex.
