Movie Info

Unwisely leaving his brothers behind for this comedy farce, Groucho Marx plays two-bit manager Lionel Devereaux, whose only client (Carmen Miranda) is miraculously hired by the famed Copacabana nightclub for a Latin dance routine. The club-owner (Steve Cochran) needs a French act as well, so Devereaux fixes up his charge in different garb and presents her as yet another act.

The result is not so wildly zany as the best Marx brothers collaborations, nor is it designed to be. But it is an unpretentiously entertaining movie.

A tired little mess.

However, hardcore Marxists already know that, as Groucho's first solo film appearance, 1947's Copacabana was a once-over-slightly effort that the Master himself dismissed before the cameras even rolled.

Worth a chuckle.

Audience Reviews for Copacabana


Pallid musical comedy would have been better in color but Carmen Miranda makes it worth seeing.

I really enjoyed this movie, it was so very funny, I especially loved Groucho's number. The story is good and the some of the songs are good too, but mostly it's very funny. Only Groucho is in it, though, don't expect the other Marx Brothers. Overall a good movie, very fun.
