...Groucho's flirtation with respectability and devilish realization that it's much more rewarding to play the clown.

It is exciting and perfect; a sign that they have at last learned how to use every resource which Hollywood can offer them; and the simplest reason I can find for calling them funny beyond the power of words to spoil the fun.

Embora empalideça diante de Diabo a Quatro, melhor filme dos irmãos, traz algumas das cenas mais memoráveis da trupe, dos jogos de palavras às gags físicas.

The backstage finish, with Harpo doing a Tarzan on the fly ropes, contains more action than the Marxes usually go in for, but it relieves the strictly verbal comedy and provides a sock exit.

Fondly remembered for such classic comedy bits as Groucho and Chico drafting a contract, the stateroom scene, and the hilarious climax where the brothers make a shambles of Il Trovatore. Sans Duck Soup, we'll watch this any day.

[The Marx Brothers] still let the air out of stuffed shirts and barbecue a few sacred cows, but something got lost in all that MGMness when the screen's ultimate anti-authoritarian team starting working the Andy Hardy side of the street.

Fresh off the failure of "Duck Soup," this was the Marx Brothers' comeback movie. The effort shows.
