pretty funny
22 November 2000 | by (Antarctica) – See all my reviews

i saw this as a filler before a Marx Bros. flick on turner classic movies. i enjoyed it, but i thought that the whole thing was too contrived. the marx brothers made everything flow naturally and without pause for thought. the ritz brothers however, had a thing about repeating funny faces and funny walks that made the whole show seem too amateur when compared to "a night at the opera", which came on afterwards.

i say this tho. i missed the beginning so didn't know the name. i used the imdb power search using the little data i had gathered (1930s comedy), and managed to track it down. neat.
