The Apartment (1960) – Movie Review – Linda Randall – Directed by Billy Wilder, Starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley Maclaine – Fred MacMurray

I am a big fan of Jack Lemmon and Fred MacMurray. I’ve never watched Shirley McLaine before, she’s so cute in this movie.

I watched it late last night with my sweetie.

We were laughing through the whole movie.

Jack Lemmon plays a single guy who has an apartment that everyone wants to use.

It interferes with his own personal life.

The funny part is watching him suffer as he gets promoted in his job.

He bends over backwards to keep the executives in the company happy but meanwhile he is so miserable.

It’s a classic movie and I guarantee it will make you giggle all the way through!

You know what’s great about the old movies?

Not only was the acting superb, but so was the directing and editing.

You get the story from start to finish and it actually is all carried by dialogue.
Nowadays all we see is action, reaction in our movies.
This is the heart of hollywood and they need to get back to the good old days when movies had some meaning to them.

That is why James Cameron’s movie is so popular.

Weeks later, people still want to see it over and over again.

Not only are they thrilled by the 3D flying effects and how it moves your body and mind.

They really enjoy the “meaty” dialogue that is in the movie.

People connect with the characters in a special way, it’s an escape from reality as you step in the world of AVATAR.

You almost become a different person, happy and content without a worry.

That’s what these OLD classic movies do to.

You step out of the present and go into the past.

Your emotions are moved, you feel joy, you feel sadness, you feel what the actor/actress is feeling.

And that’s why you like it.

It make you feel ALIVE inside!
