So often, I have made the mistake of using these IMSDB comment boxes to review the film based off of a particular screenplay, rather than the screenplay itself. Well, I hope to change that starting now, as I review Billy Wilder's classic "The Apartment". Being a fan of Wilder's work -- "Some Like It Hot" especially -- I was excited to have an opportunity to read over "Apartment". I started, and in an hour, I had the script read. It took not but a few seconds afterwards for the entire experience to digest, and once it had, I could do nothing but simply marvel at Wilder and Diamond's expert writing styles. Their scripts are intelligent, humorous, sentimental, and even dark at some points. They work as a team, so well, in fact, that it's hard to distinguish wHAT was Billy's idea, and what was I.A.L.'s. Their characters -- Fran, Bud, Sheldrake, Dr Dreyfuss -- are all realistic, and they react to each other in such ways that you can not help but chuckle. You will probably find yourself giggling like a schoolgirl at the witty dialogue, and then you'll explode with laughter at certain scenarios, such as when the neighbors begin thinking -- and rightly so -- that Bud's apartment is the next generation sexpot. Those looking for "Dumb & Dumber" chuckles should definitely avoid this screenplay. "The Apartment" is meant to tell a story that is both sexy and sad on the same beat. In fact, this film won several awards, BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY being one of them. Complete with sex, humor, business, awkward moments, and a long triangle, "The Apartment" screenplay deserves a ten out of ten. Review-wise.

Great film, I love everything by Billy Wilder and with Jack Lemmon. That said- and this is in no way a criticism- it isn't really a patch on Some Like It Hot. But then what comes close to that?
