The Marx Brothers' Last Film: Still Good!
1 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I always thought that if I had to pick a worst film of the Marxes, that this would be it. But, can I ever say I dislike a movie with Groucho, Harpo, and Chico (and sometimes Zeppo) in it? Hell no! Before I first saw it years ago, I never heard of it before that and was really glad that I did, and had to see it. When I finally saw it, I wasn't disappointed, considering it was their very last official film together. Most of every comedy team's last films aren't as good as they used to be, but so what! Enjoy the chance to see them one last time! Recommended to any Marx Bros. fan!

By the way, note Groucho's mustache and eyebrows in this. They're not the classic grease-paint, he was working on "You Bet Your Life" at the time, and ditched the fake ones.
