I suspect that all the people who don't find this laugh out loud funny have never EVER seen it with an audience. In 1959, I can assure you it was not only laugh out loud funny, you frequently couldn't hear the dialogue because the laughs were so loud and so long. Comedy is hard when you're sitting at home alone and especially when a film has been ripped off by so many lesser films as much as Some Like it Hot has.
I ran this for good sized theatrical audiences twice during the past 20 years and both times the reaction was sustained laughter during many parts of the film. Same with Mad Mad World, Duck Soup, and Buck Privates. An audience is needed for comedies.
