Audience Reviews for A Day at the Races

    I believe this is the longest of the Marx Brother's movies. It really didn't need to be so long, there were a couple of boring scenes. Other than that, the Brothers do all their usual jokes and run around being silly as usual, which is always fun, so I liked this movie anyway.

    Much funnier than the last couple of films I've seen.

    "Emily, I've got a confession to make. I really am a horse doctor, but if you marry me, I'll never look at another horse."

    Another Marx Bros. classic. As long as you can stomach the superfluous romantic and musical interludes, you just cannot go wrong with them. Hilarious.
