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

This production is, for the most part, extremely noisy without being nearly as mirthful as [the Marx brothers'] other films.
January 15, 2015
A comedy classic that boasts some of Groucho's prickliest zingers and the pinnacle of Harpo's mirthful mischief.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

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 Marx Brothers created a body of work in which individual films are like slices from the whole, but Duck Soup (1933) is probably the best.

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.

Presents Groucho at his best.

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.

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.
