    A Day at the Races presents The Marx Brothers at their most neutered. Gone is the eclectic insanity present in most of their Paramount offerings, being instead replaced by sappy sentimentalism that marks MGM films throughout this period in general. Early on, the film is actually probably their best technically, with expertly executed musical numbers being well-balanced, but the film eventually becomes bogged down by them. Groucho, Chico, and Harpo become supporting players in their own movie, second to a…

    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.

    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.
