funnier on the big screen

I saw Duck Soup at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, IL. I'd seen it before - in fact, I own the DVD, but for some reason, it's infinitely funnier on the big screen. Maybe it's because the physical comedy is more obvious when it's bigger, or maybe it's the community atmosphere of a public theatre, but whatever it is, next time it's screened, I'll be the first person in line to see it.

Very funny and immensely entertaining!

"I got a good mind to join a club and beat you over the head with it."

The Marx Brothers have been fondly remembered for several of their timeless comedy productions. Similar to Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, their classic films are overflowing with terrific gags that are still hilarious even during the 21st Century.

The small state of Freedonia is in a financial mess, borrowing a huge sum of cash from wealthy widow Mrs. Teasdale. She insists on replacing the current president with crazy Rufus T. Firefly and mayhem erupts. To make matters worse, the neighboring state sends inept spies Chicolini and Pinky to obtain top secret information, creating even more chaos!

"Packed with gags and zany humor, this 1933 comedy is one of the Marx brothers's funniest, most surreal, and most beloved works."

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"Obviously complaining that a Marx Brothers film was overlooked by awards bodies is a bit like getting in a huff because “Zoolander” or “Anchorman” suffered the same fate, but even so, eighty years on, the total snubbing of the comedy legends’ masterpiece “Duck Soup,” a hilarious geo-political satire, still stings. The Academy probably felt so too, eventually: Groucho Marx was final given an honorary award in 1974."
