"This would be a great film to watch as a double billing with "A Night at the Opera"."
5 stars

This fast-paced follow-up to "A Night at the Opera", has the brothers Marx invading a sanitarium, as they try to peddle Groucho off as a respected neurologist.

In the meantime, Chico and Harpo are trying to save the business of a friend (Maureen O'Sullivan), by entering their horse at the racetrack. As a result of these situations, everything runs amok, as things tend to do in a Marx Brothers' film. Once again, you'll find some truly memorable bits, especially from Groucho and Chico with their word games and double-talk. The film is hampered somewhat by some rather dull musical numbers, but the Brothers triumph over these minor problems and walk away with the film.

This would be a great film to watch as a double billing with "A Night at the Opera".
