The Marx Brothers try and put on a play before their landlord finds out that they have run out of money. To confuse the landlord they pretend that the play's author has contracted some terrible disease and can't be moved. Originally a stage play, the setting shows it's origins, but this is vintage Marx Brothers. Written by

Because The Marx Brothers are credited onscreen in the opening credits but are not in the comprehensive end credits, (where they are individually credited), the IMDb cast list uses the opening credits first, and completes them with those in the end credits not already mentioned. See more »
When Gordon Miller calls to reception pretending to be Dr. Glass, he is holding the phone receiver with his right hand. Seconds later, when he is about to hang up, he is holding it with his left hand. See more »
Gee, I don't know where I'm at. Mr. Gribble says I owe 600 dollars, downstairs they think I've got a tapeworm, and this man thinks I'm a lunatic!

Many criticize "Room Service" as the worst Marx Brothers film. This is both misleading and ridiculous. While "Duck Soup" now receives the most critical acclaim, one need only compare that film to Room Serivce to see a dramatic improvement in the directing and delivery. Room Service wasn't written explicitly for the Marx Brothers, so it doesn't have catchy lines. Still, the film flows much better than predecessors and is still pretty damn funny. The Marx Brothers made many great movies, and yes, this is one of those great ones!
