One of the last Marx Brothers films, still funny!

Another of the later Marx Brothers films that is always ripped apart by the critics who keep saying "It isn't Duck Soup" the problem when this movie was release was that MGM had decided that the Marx Brothers comedy was formulaic, and they thought that if they had writers use a formula to create the film the comedy would flow properly. The problem is that everything the Marx Brothers did was against all rational formula. They had a unique method of their own that people could not put on paper and make it function the same way. But I don't want to knock this movie because I know their performances were amazing for what they were given to work with and how they were controlled. While it isn't like their other films this is still the Marx Brothers.
