    1937 !!!! Hard to believe they were so out there, wacky, outright funny, back then. 100 years ahead of their time. Though this is still 1937 and there are plenty of for us boring musical bits in it.

    I really wanted to like this. It's the third Marx Bros. film I've seen after Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera and none of them have clicked with me. I don't know what it is. I can see the humour, and I find it witty but it hardly ever makes me laugh. Usually its a 'huh, that's funny'. I'm probably defective.

    " Emily, I have a confession to make. I really am a horse doctor. But marry me, and I'll never look at another horse."

    Scavenger Hunt #3 15/30
    8. A film about horse(s)!

    Vintage Marx Bros. The puns are in abundance. The sight gags are great. It's at it best when its just the Bros on the screen, the other characters are just not as funny. There is even a great black face scene, it is interesting to see how they treat it, especially with The Birth of a Nation fresh in my mind.

    Even worse than A Night at the Opera. The ending left me truly sad.

    The boy's manic shtick is as sublime and surreal as ever, as they try to save a sanitarium sitting next to a horse race track from closure. Solid stuff, if only the two lengthy musical interludes featuring forgettable songs had been kept shorter.

    It's very difficult to rank the Marx Brothers' flicks - NONE are perfect, but ALL have moments of perfection. This one - with plot nonsense about a horse who might save a sanitarium - is no different, but whenever Hugo Z. Hackenbush is onscreen, it is divine.

    Get ya Tutsi-Frutsie Ice-Cream!!!

    I enjoy the Marx Brothers a lot. This one is quite funny, but the overly long musical numbers kill the momentum in a lot of spots.

    Controlled chaos, which gets better as it becomes less controlled. But since I'm an unironic fan of big production numbers and old-time crooning, the interstitial stuff works for me in a way that it doesn't for some.
