Rating: 4.5/5 -- When Groucho's in charge of things -- and that's most of the time -- A Day at the Races is full of great stuff. Full Review

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

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

Description by OLDIES.com:

Judy Standish's (Maureen O'Sullivan) sanitarium is about to be foreclosed upon. She begs for help from rich patient Emily Updike (Margaret Dumont). Updike agrees to save the sanitarium but demands that her favorite medical practitioner, Dr. Hugo Hackenbush (Groucho Marx), be placed in charge. Hackenbush is a horse doctor by trade.
