This was my first exposure to the Marx brothers. It was odd to start off with but in the end I was won over by the wacky humour of the Marx's antics. I am not a fan of musicals but most of these bits are not tiringly extended. It also for the first time made me understand and appreciate several comic strips, cartoons, jokes and general comments. A good laugh with friends.
