...may not inspire one to gales of laughter the way the earlier Marx Brothers films did, but there are still some good laughs here.

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.

When Groucho's in charge of things -- and that's most of the time -- A Day at the Races is full of great stuff.

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