Chock with some classic gags and lines...
The Brothers' energy and madness is never in question: when the laughs come, they come loud and long.
Fun puts melody in the shade in the audible pictorial transcription of the musical comedy The Cocoanuts.
Watchable for some hilarious routines, but valued now mostly as a relic.

First Marx Brothers film is creaky, but has marvelous scenes
| Original Score: 3/5
Creaky production is the Marx Brothers' first...and has its hilarious moments.
| Original Score: 4/5
There's a true benefit of starting at the beginning.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The daft anarchy of the Marx Brothers is often akin to watching the id personified and unleashed.
It shows its age, but it also captures the verve of the Marx Brothers at the start of their movies careers.
Not the best Marx Brothers film but close. It features the classic 'Why a duck' routine between Groucho and Chico.
Stagey, but with lots of great Marx routines and some Irving Berlin songs.
An eminently watchable antique.
