funnier on the big screen

8 years, 7 months ago at Jul 18 13:51
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.

"RUFUS T. FIREFLY: Remember, you're fighting for this woman's honor, which is probably more than she ever did. RUFUS T. FIREFLY: I could dance with you ‘til the cows come home. On second thought, I'd rather dance with the cows ‘til you came home. RUFUS T. FIREFLY: I suggest that we give him ten years in Levenworth, or eleven years in Twelveworth. CHICOLINI: I’ll tell you what I’ll do. I’ll take five and ten in Woolworth."

"08.07. TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Leo McCarey Groucho Marx and his continuous infantry of jokes is just incredibly annoying. Everytime a character fucking SAYS something to Groucho you can expect a "witty" comeback companied by his irritating and smug "I'm so funny" face. Yuck. Luckily the other brothers are not that annoying - I rather enjoyed most of what Harpo's character was doing (the hat switching scene, for instance, is brilliant). The physical comedy on the whole worked a LOT better t"

"Re-watch - May 7th I didn't realize how long it had been since I last watched Duck Soup. I'd forgotten most of it (the mirror scene remains unforgettable), so this felt like a first viewing. That said, few movies make me laugh this hard & this frequently. This is the Marx Bros. at their anarchic best. Much like Horse Feathers there's more detours from the plot than a focus on it, and the results are always hilarious. The pair of scenes where Harpo's character takes on a street vendor had me in "

30 Great Films from the 30s (30 movies items)

"Widely seen as the Marx Brothers' finest film, 'Duck Soup' packs considerable laughs into its 60 minute runtime. Directed by the great Leo McCarey, 'Duck Soup' is considered by some to be the last 'true' Marx Brothers film, in that the characters are dedicated to nothing but total anarchy, however destructive, unlike the more ethically-friendly forces for good that they became in later films. Although it was not a big hit at the time, 'Duck Soup' grew in critical stature as time went on. In par"
