The Marx Bros. - Best to worst (13 movies items)

" I had a big problem with this one: I'm struck by just how forced & thus unnecessary the musical interludes are here. In previous Marx Bros. films, the ones heaviest on music set the audience up for the musical numbers, usually in the first 15 minutes or so. Here the first one comes along so late it feels unnecessary. I feel like Allan Jones had it in his contract that he had to sing 2 songs to be in the film & they obliged him. Unfortunately neither of his songs is memorable & both give way to "

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The classic "Tootsie-Frootsie" ice cream/code book scene in which vendor and racetrack tipster Tony (Chico Marx) sells a racing tips book to gullible horse doctor and sanitarium head Dr. Hugo Z. Hackenbush (Groucho Marx); also the scene in which Hackenbush plays half-deaf "Colonel Hawkins" of the Florida Medical Board to infuriate Whitmore (Leonard Ceeley); the two absurd medical examination scenes ("Just put the gown on, not the nurse") - first with Stuffy (Harpo Marx) and then with Mrs. Upjohn"

"#59 Watched June 12th - the giraffe's DVD collection - 1st Viewing "I haven't seen anything like this in years, the last time I saw a head like that it was in a bottle of formaldehyde. " -Dr. Hackenbush There is something inherently funny when you combine comedians and horse racing - and A Day at the Races is no exception - the Marx Brothers are at their best in this movie in which they have to win a horse race in order to save a sanitarium from demolition. There are very funny bits all th"
