Not the best Marx Brothers film but close. It features the classic 'Why a duck' routine between Groucho and Chico.
| Original Score: 4/5

The daft anarchy of the Marx Brothers is often akin to watching the id personified and unleashed.

Stagey, but with lots of great Marx routines and some Irving Berlin songs.
| Original Score: 4/5

Fun puts melody in the shade in the audible pictorial transcription of the musical comedy The Cocoanuts.

May 24, 2003
It shows its age, but it also captures the verve of the Marx Brothers at the start of their movies careers.
