My dad and I were playing Scene It once and the tie breaker was movies with an animal name in the title. Of course, this went on for about forty five minutes. The Marx Brothers really helped me out that day...
Not funny at all. Really just antifunny actually. The jokes are as old as the hills. I guess this just shows how genius the Marx Brothers really were though because of how much they have been copied. This, however, doesn't make for an interesting watch and I was thoroughly bored for most of it. The musical number at the end warranted a chuckle though because of all the musicals we have been seeing lately. I guess if you really want to study the history of comedy in cinema this is a must watch but otherwise avoid at all costs (like I do with Monty Python).
I am going to spare you from hearing the explanation for the movie's title. The joke is so bad!!
#60 in AFI's top 100 movie list.
Mussolini banned this film because he thought it was attacking him. The Marx Brothers were ecstatic.
