Amusing and fun Marx movie with a series of incidents which lead to an anarchic football end . Features some of the brothers´s classic routines and the songs : ¨Whatever it is , I´m against it¨ , ¨Everyone says I love you¨. Classic Marx film with many funny sequences , this is the most sustained bit of insanity , full of crazy gags , antics and amusement , being now deemed a satiric masterpiece and one of the biggest hits . Though not as mercilessly hilarious and outrageous as other films , it results to be , nonetheless , an agreeable movie . The Marx Brothers were still at the peak of their fame in this Paramount Pictures musical/comedy. Although it suffers from excessive musical comedy plotting , but it gives the zany threesome plenty of comic elaboration . It works very well , which , unfortunately and sadly , did not prove to be the case with most of the Marx Brothers pictures that went on . Enough gags for give several movies , but our favorite is still as Harpo gets to win the match . Despite the abundant songs , the movie maintains itself very well . Excellent Harpo Marx , as usual , he even did many of his own stunts , he later said it was a silly thing for a 47-year-old .This is the second Marx Brothers film made with brother Zeppo Marx, it started a new trend of The Marx Brothers movies featuring a Zeppo-like supporting character who carries the love story and sings the song . If previous Marx films were M. G. M. Lavishly financed by Max Siegel and Irving Thalberg , from now on, their movies produced by Paramount Pictures and Herman J. Mankiewicz . The motion picture was well directed by Norman Z MacLeod . He was a perfectionist filming very charming scenes . Don't miss it , one of the funniest picture ever made by Marx Brothers.
Other important films starred by Marx Brothers -many of them Broadway farce plays transfered by scenarists into vehicle for the Brothers- , they are the following ones : ¨Animal crackers¨, ¨Duck soap¨ that was a flop when first released but today considered a masterpiece , ¨Horse Feathers¨, ¨At the circus¨, ¨A night at the Opera¨,¨Day at the races¨ , ¨Room service¨ , ¨Go West¨, ¨Love Happy¨ and ¨Night in Casablanca¨, though in 1946 the Marx formula was weak and wearing thin. Any film with Groucho , Chico , Harpo and Zeppo is well worth seeing .
