365 Movies: Animal Crackers Review


Animal Crackers stars The Marx Brothers- Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo, and also includes Margaret Dumont and Lillian Roth in this 1930 comedy. The Marx Brothers are at their zaniest and craziest but of course, are hilarious. It's kind of hard to describe the movie, so I'll just give you a hint as to what it's about. While staying at a hotel, The Marx Brothers cause mischief and absolute craziness, when,before, and after a painting goes missing. I just love The Marx Brothers so much and seeing this, didn't disappoint me one bit. It was so hysterically funny and several times, while watching the movie I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. They were all comedic geniuses! Of course, I couldn't end this post without telling you who my favorite Marx Brother is and believe it or not but my favorite is.........

ZEPPO!


I know, but seriously off-screen apparently Zeppo was the funniest and if he had only gotten more chances on-screen to show that, his fan base would be bigger. Plus, he's very adorable! Even when he's on-screen my attention is on him.

The other brothers have my love as well but not as much as Zeppo does. Quirky, I know but it's something I can't help! I always the love the underdog!
