Animal Crackers (The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection) back to product details

Entertaining, but...
12345678910

In 1930, someone hadn't figured out how to make a Marx brothers film.
This epic is laden with superfluous musical numbers (a poor man's Gilbert and Sullivan), a plot that is spotty at best, and it cannot decide if it's a comedy, a mystery, a romance, or whatever. By trying to please everybody, it pleases very few.

That said, it does have the Marx brothers - and that counts for a lot. It has a number of classic Groucho lines (I once shot an elephant in my pajamas) and much brilliant sillyness.
