The reason `The Apartment' is so great is because it is extremely smart. It's funny, sure, but in an honest and believable manner. It's witty and original and the chemistry between the stars Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine is effortless.
The story is not a simple one to explain without giving too much away, and I hate giving too much away so I will attempt this the best I can. Jack Lemmon plays C.C. Baxter, a junior accountant for a New York City firm, who found an interesting way of climbing the corporate ladder. Baxter (of `Buddy Boy' as he is called by his workmates) lends out his apartment to the married men he works with who want to entertain their extramarital flings without their wives knowledge. This act leads to some confusion among those living in Baxter's building, garners him a bad reputation and proves to be quite the inconvenience to him, but professionally he is `moving on up'. Then he meets the beautiful Fran Kubelik and things look as though they might move in the right direction socially for him as well; but there are still a few roadblocks he must maneuver through before he's home free.
Jack Lemmon is irresistibly charming here. His `loser' Baxter is endearing to the viewer.Read more ›

Acting was great! Would have been funny but I couldn't believe the lust, perversion, and adultery. For the 1950's it was just terrible.Published 17 days ago by ljch
