Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Proof of the absence of God comes when Marx Brothers gags get the scissors ... yet we still must endure a show-stopping (in the worst sense of the word) water-ballet number that's a dose of Robitussin when the movie needs a double espresso. Full Review
Rating: B- -- A winner at the box office. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
A Day at the Races (1937) is a classic Marx Brothers comedy, often argued as one of their three or four best works. Full Review
A Day at the Races brings us the Marx Brothers at their best; which means that their latest film is a good deal like their other films and wildly unlike anything else on earth. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Vintage Groucho, Harpo and Chico.
Rating: 7/10 -- ...may not inspire one to gales of laughter the way the earlier Marx Brothers films did, but there are still some good laughs here. Full Review
