A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a classic in its own right. The songs are fun and the story is unpredictable (even if it does occasionally meander for too long).
Humorous to an extent, but lacking the bang you might expect from a big screen musical.
The middling low-brow slapstick comedy overdoses on the brassy Zero Mostel hamming it up.
The funniest movie ever made
Hilarious, stagey version of hit Broadway musical comedy.
This is freakin' hilarious!
If the movie at times doesn't quite hang together, it still is made up of a series of scenes that are individually hilarious.
The Empire strikes back in loutish, fun musical comedy.
A great mixture of slapstick, farce and music. Zero Mostel is a treat as is the underappreciated Jack Gilford.
Perhaps the first modern film musical -- breaking with and even making sport of the theatrical artifice that had been bogging down the genre for nearly a decade.
A funny thing happened on the way to Hollywood: A good musical-comedy lost much of its fizz.
Lester's mark on this comedy and the psychedelia of the 60's are definitely present. There are a lot of changes from the stage version of the musical comedy including that most of the songs have been cut. I saw this several years ago and didn't really appreciate the sense of humor. I recently was the assistant director for a production of this show at a community theater and I thought the stage play partly by Larry Gelbart had more potential. It is supposed to be a vaudevillian comedy based on the ancient comedies of Plautus. I re-watched this movie after the show was up and running. I liked it just a bit more than before, but my increase in laughs was more based on having spent the time rehearsing the play. To recognize some of the original lines that were kept and differences between our version and this wacky picture was my main source of enjoyment.
This movie is really very funny, much more so than I expected. The cast is great, but I really felt that Keaton needed a bigger role in the story. Anyway, the story is very interesting in a classical way, it's like something Shakespeare could have written. I liked this movie.
just-for-the-hell-of-it comedy with zero mostel mugging unmercilessly through the midsummer nights dream circumstances of a hapless slave seeking his freedom w/chicanery aforethought. the roman locale is only one superficiality of the story. yeah, it got laughs out of me. i didn't wanna, but they took 'em from me! it was a riot.
A kind of american version of Up Pompeii, this roman comedy based on a musical is actually pretty funny. But with a cast including the likes of Zero Mostel and Phil Silvers, you can't really go wrong...
