absolutely hilarious marx brothers film. they employ all sorts of humor, something you hardly ever see these days. there’s slapstick, puns, crude humor, just everything. there are far too many great quotes to list here, so just refer to this page. some of them come off a bit flat on the page, but they all work very well with the marx brothers’ delivery. margaret dumont is a good sport throughout the entire affair. really, the film is genius in so many ways. not only is it immensely dense, quick and intelligent (sometimes you don’t get a joke until minutes later), it serves well on the level of political commentary. it pokes so much fun at politicians, war and the like that it, in a lot of ways, is more political than some of the tom clancy type political thrillers that come out these days. great great film.
