Animal Crackers ★★½

I'm not a fan of the Marx Brothers' "no plot, all crazy shit" era, and this is why. "A Night at the Opera" and "A Day at the Races" made these guys scrappy underdogs who bucked the system while still being funny as hell; "Animal Crackers" makes them out to be a load of insane jackasses who launch into tired, prolonged comedy sketches on a whim.
