Proof of the absence of God comes when Marx Brothers gags get the scissors ... yet we still must endure a show-stopping (in the worst sense of the word) water-ballet number that's a dose of Robitussin when the movie needs a double espresso.

Groucho's power is his smoothness with language, his Kryptonite Chico's elaborate doublespeak.
