Monkey Business Reviews
However, during the festivities mixed with craziness, his beautiful daughter is kidnapped by the other gangsters. In the final showdown, the Brothers lend a hand and save the captive girl being help captive in a barn. Aside from the usual chaos, some notable scenes include the opening sequence, the Punch and Judy Show, the Maurice Chevalier scene, and of the course the barn sequence!
And when I say no story, I mean no story. The movie starts with mention of four stowaways (guess who) and within 2 minutes the chase starts and doesn't stop until the 50 minute mark! It's as if the script consisted of one sentence, "Take this Three Stooges short and cast The Marx Brothers instead."
There is a brief attempt at a story towards the end, but nobody really cares. As a result, this movie, while very funny, still falls short of the upcoming string of masterpieces that each would wrap the brothers' jokes up in a matching story. You know, like a real movie!
