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.
