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

" The story is decent (not that the plot matters really), and as long as the Marx Bros. are on screen this film is an absolute joy. The trouble generally arises whenever they're not on screen. There are a handful of dance numbers for no apparent reason, which end up seeming like filler, as if someone decided the run-time wasn't sufficient & needed padding. The film also suffers from some clunky transitions, most notably the one where we cut away to Harpo walking over to his harp to play a song. A"

"The numerous puns (Groucho: "Oh, you want some . Get some onions, that'll make your eyes (ice) water" and "On this site we're going to build an Eye and Ear Hospital. This is going to be a sight for sore eyes") and one-liners ("Believe me, you gotta get up early if you want to get out of bed"); also the scene of leering Florida hotel manager Mr. Hammer's (Groucho Marx) first courting of Mrs. Potter (Margaret Dumont) -("I'll meet you tonight under the moon. Oh, I can see you now—you and the moon"

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"8.2. The Cocoanuts toimii keskittyessään Marx-veljesten oikein hykerryttävään sekoiluun, mutta lopahtaa aina turhan ponnettomasti etenevän juonen tai pääasiassa keskinkertaisten ja tapahtumista irrallisten musikaalikohtausten (Chicon ja Harpon soittoesityksiä lukuun ottamatta) noustessa etualalle. Äänielokuvan synty näkyy tässä mielenkiintoisesti niin hyvässä kuin pahassa."

"Jan. 4th I haven't watched The Cocoanuts as often as some other Marx movies, so I'd forgotten some of it. The upside to that is that my take on the film was fairly fresh, and thanks to my growing critical side it's dropped from a 9/10 to an 8/10. The story is decent (not that the plot matters really), and as long as the Marx Bros. are on screen this film is an absolute joy. The trouble generally arises whenever they're not on screen. There are a handful of dance numbers for no apparent reason,"
