Audience Reviews for Monkey Business
All the brothers were musicians but Harpo alone always got so serious whenever he played harp (sometimes Chico on the piano, but not always). His clown character creation falls from him, regardless of his costume and ... I always think of their mom, making those guys take music lessons. Those guys. One look from Harpo and women run for their virtue, one look, and then the same guy sits down to play a harp, what angels are supposed to play, its a contradiction, isn't it?
Big fun as always, this film, as the stowaway foursome mess with stuffy shipboard personnel, the gentry elite, and gangsters to boot.
Who is Maurice Chevalier?
My favourite Marx Brothers movie. It's hilarious and short, it's just packed full of jokes and gags.
complete anarchy and absolutely hilarious. at the rate they fire off the gags they're bound to miss a few but most of it sticks. i'm inclined to think the boys lost something when they left paramount. i never much cared for the elaborate plots thalberg imposed on them at mgm.
