The Marx Brothers in one of their slighter divertissements. Funny and wild, but not wildly funny.
March 12, 2019
One of the great comedies without question.
October 29, 2016
True movie fans haven't lived until they've caught its nonstop barrage of classic bits.

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]
January 16, 2015
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.
January 16, 2015
The funniest of the Marx Brothers pictures ...
January 15, 2015
The sheer silliness is inspired ...
January 15, 2015
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.
January 15, 2015
A comedy classic that boasts some of Groucho's prickliest zingers and the pinnacle of Harpo's mirthful mischief.
January 12, 2015
Genius just about covers it.
April 17, 2011
One of the funniest movies of the Marx brothers--and of the Depression era.
December 14, 2010
Nonstop classic Marx Bros. mayhem kids will love.

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 irmos Marx, o filme uma verdadeira metralhadora giratria, disparando dilogos precisamente construdos e gags fsicas inesquecveis com uma rapidez invejvel ainda nos dias de hoje.

Comic anarchy at its very best. This one just keeps getting better.
June 27, 2007
Duck Soup should make practically everybody laugh.
June 27, 2007
The Marx Brothers' best movie...
June 9, 2006
This Marxist masterpiece is also one of greatest military satires ever made.
January 26, 2006
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.
September 2, 2005
Funny classic comedy.
