Movie Review – The Marx Bros. – A Night In Casablanca

I finally watched this movie this evening. It was the last film that the Marx Bros. made together and it’s not their greatest of moments.

The film does feature a fair bit of the Marx’s trademark humour but other than the hotel room scene, which drags on a little too long, there is nothing that they had not done in previous films. The film is primarily about Nazis and stolen Jewish artworks that were hidden in the hotel Casablanca. The plot is a little disjointed and there seems to be a bit too much going on. The Brothers don’t really get too much time to do their gags justice, with the exception of the amusing hotel room scene that I previously mention. That’s not to say that it is a bad movie, it is still more entertaining than anything that Adam Sandler has been making in the last decade or so. While it may not be as hilariously funny as Duck Soup or A Night At The Opera it is still very interesting.
