Another Marx Bros. classic. As long as you can stomach the superfluous romantic and musical interludes, you just cannot go wrong with them. Hilarious.

Not one of my favorite Marx Bros, but still pretty funny in it's second half. And that phone call gag was priceless.

Each Marx Brothers film brings something unique to the table. This isn't nearly as iconic as Duck Soup, but, in particular, a Day at the Races has some more memorable Chico and Harpo moments, as their brand of physical comedy takes precedence over Groucho's usual quips.

This is classic Marx brothers at their best. Actually this film is often said to be the last good Marx Brothers movie, possibly because it was the last one produced by Paramount before MGM took over their contracts and began forcing them to stick to a formula that was created for them. This film revolves entirely around a horse race track. Groucho, Chico, and Harpo are in top performance as they play against each other in some of the funniest sketches. I strongly believe that I will always be a Marx Brother fan, and their films will stand the test of time for many many years to come.
