About the Movie

A pointed political satire, Duck Soup is the Marx Brothers' funniest and most insane film. Groucho is Rufus T. Firefly, the hilarious dictator of mythical Freedonia. Harpo and Chico are commissioned as spies by Groucho's political rival, the calculating Trentino (Louis Calhern). The film contains many of the Brothers' famous sequences: the lemonade stand, a masterpiece of slow burn; the Paul Revere parody; the "We're Going To War" number, a beautiful spoof of '30s musicals; the hilarious mirror scene; and a final battle episode that has been copied by everyone from Woody Allen to Mad Magazine.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Duck Soup should make practically everybody laugh. – Joe Bigelow, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The Marx Brothers created a body of work in which individual films are like slices from the whole, but Duck Soup (1933) is probably the best. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jan 20, 2006

Fresh: The Marx Brothers' best movie... – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Dec 15, 2015

Fresh: It turns out that the sharp-tongued humour of Groucho Marx is ageless, the slapstick timely and the subject matter still pertinent: loony dictatorship, religion, pointless warfare. – Kate Muir, Times (UK), Jan 16, 2015

Awesome Film

One of the greatest anti-war films of all time, this movie is the Marx Brothers at their best.

meh its okay

Duck soup is said to be one of the funniesy Marx Bros movies but the best is still "A Night at the Opera". It's still a good movie overall but it lacks the luster from Opera


I totally heart the Marx Brothers SO glad to find them here But a Night at the OperA IS STILL BETTER!!!!
