Reviews

“ONE OF THE MOST RIOTOUS FILMS EVER MADE!”
Time Out

“The crowded state room and bed-swapping sequences age wondrously…[the musical sequences] involving the Marxes soar; the celebrations aboard steerage pump Opera’s groundling-favoring heart...The Marxes may have been clean, but they dismantled elitism every chance they got. We’re all richer for it.”
– Max Kyburz, Brooklyn Magazine

“One priceless comedy bit after another… this is as good as it gets.”
– Leonard Maltin
