One of the best ever made
16 December 2004 | by (Minneapolis, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

Although the majority of us film-fanatics would agree this has been a unbeatable comedy since is release date in 1933, for those of you people who have not seen this movie, I highly suggest it. Between tears from laughing and sadness, you will realize what an extraordinary movie this is. It's a movie that I will always respect, and although I enjoy new-age comedical acts such as Anchorman and such, The Poor Fish will always hold a special place in my heart, and is probably one of the best comedy movies ever made. Since I first saw "The Poor Fish", I have not looked at movies that same. It gave me a whole new outlook on movies and a very high criteria of what makes a good comedy and Great Comedy, like the Poor Fish accomplished.
