funnier on the big screen

12 years, 5 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.

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!

"DUCK SOUP - THE DISOBEDIENT MIRROR IMAGE Although its appearance in the Marx Brothers' 'Duck Soup' is undoubtedly its most famous occurrence, variations on the classic Mirror Routine in which an intruder disguises their presence by impersonating their suspicious investigator's own mirror image had appeared in previous films and would become familiar to new generations through animated versions in several classic Hollywood cartoons. While the goofy concept of a person possibly being able to mist"

"8.5 (uusintakatselu) Marxin veljesten taidonnäyte naurattaa toisellakin kerralla yhtä paljon mitä joskus vuosia sitten. Naseva poliittinen satiiri, mutta ennen kaikkea myös nokkelien vaudevillesketsien sarja, joista kolmen hatun temppu sekä jo legendaarinen kahden Grouchon peilikohtaus ovat vasta ne parhaimmat."

"The Marx Brothers' fifth feature film and their last for Paramount, 'Duck Soup' represents the final time the brothers were allowed to let the full anarchic force of their best work loose on screen. While their later films for MGM cast them as kooky but helpful figures who usually aided the romance between a bland couple, 'Duck Soup' represents the apex of the Marx Brothers as amoral lunatics seemingly aiming to achieve nothing other than their own amusement. To that end, 'Duck Soup' casts Grouc"

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