The Brothers' energy and madness is never in question: when the laughs come, they come loud and long.

Watchable for some hilarious routines, but valued now mostly as a relic.

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.

| Original Score: 4/5
