For all its wild comic abandon, Duck Soup has darker implications than the usual Marx Brothers comedy and, as such, feels the most relevant and sharp in its satire. [Blu-ray]

It turns out that the sharp-tongued humour of Groucho Marx is ageless, the slapstick timely and the subject matter still pertinent: loony dictatorship, religion, pointless warfare.

The sheer silliness is inspired ...

Questioning the canonical standing of a titan such as Duck Soup seems like an exercise in questioning the tastes of those who like it rather than the upbraiding the comedy mechanics of the film itself.

A comedy classic that boasts some of Groucho's prickliest zingers and the pinnacle of Harpo's mirthful mischief.

...a glaring example of the element of the Marx Brothers' comedy that's always bothered me: the reliance on insults and cruelty.

Watch for the famous "mirror scene" in which Harpo--dressed as Groucho--matches Groucho's every movement in a non-existent mirror--pure comic genius.

Melhor longa da carreira dos irmãos Marx, o filme é uma verdadeira metralhadora giratória, disparando diálogos precisamente construídos e gags físicas inesquecíveis com uma rapidez invejável ainda nos dias de hoje.

It also includes what is perhaps the Brothers' funniest scene ever: an immaculately timed and performed sequence with a broken mirror in which Groucho, Chico and Harpo look absolutely identical. A masterpiece.

Funny classic comedy.
