Watching each brother try to pass himself off as Maurice Chevalier is a comic highlight.
Keeps plot at a minimum, anarchy at a maximum, which is a good place to be for the fearless foursome of 1930s screen comedy. [Blu-ray]
A comic commotion on the ocean, via the fabulous four Marx Brothers.
It's not the most dynamic and timeless of the brothers' movies but it has enough moments and lines to stand alongside any of them.
...allows for a welcome bit of personal space between the audience and the comedians' antics.
Marx Bros. classic is zany slapstick done right.
Not the best Marx Brothers, but pretty close.
The Brothers offer lunacy, anarchy, and unbound nonsense for their Depression audience as they mock the foolish ways the rich behave aboard the luxury liner.
Probably only bettered by Horse Feathers and Duck Soup in the Marx library.
There's something a little special about this film in that it might well be the most wholly anarchic they ever made.
A consistently funny comedy (with some amazing moments) but only until the characters leave the ship; after that, however, the film becomes more irregular, with jokes that don't work so well despite how addictive the Marx brothers are in nearly every scene they appear.
All the brothers were musicians but Harpo alone always got so serious whenever he played harp (sometimes Chico on the piano, but not always). His clown character creation falls from him, regardless of his costume and ... I always think of their mom, making those guys take music lessons. Those guys. One look from Harpo and women run for their virtue, one look, and then the same guy sits down to play a harp, what angels are supposed to play, its a contradiction, isn't it?
Big fun as always, this film, as the stowaway foursome mess with stuffy shipboard personnel, the gentry elite, and gangsters to boot.
Who is Maurice Chevalier?
My favourite Marx Brothers movie. It's hilarious and short, it's just packed full of jokes and gags.
complete anarchy and absolutely hilarious. at the rate they fire off the gags they're bound to miss a few but most of it sticks. i'm inclined to think the boys lost something when they left paramount. i never much cared for the elaborate plots thalberg imposed on them at mgm.
