The Marx Brothers film career together lasted from 1929 (The Cocoanuts) to 1946 (A Night In Casablanca) with laughter in between! These five movies all have Zeppo in it, but after Duck Soup (1933) he retired. Whether you are a Marx Brother fan or you're just looking for laughter, this is the set for you. This comedy team will have you laughing practically all the time. The jokes keep coming and coming they never slow down. So if you want classic comedy, this set is for you.

I am 22 and have grown up with the Marx Brothers. Anyone who has not gotten a chance to see these movies needs to see them as soon as possible. They are the best.

The Marx Brothers says it all. Classic performances, very good transfers from film, very good sound. Watch Margaret Dumont (as Groucho's foil) force herself not to burst out laughing as Groucho delivers some of his classic lines. Just ponder this little classic between Groucho and Chico: Hammer: "Now here is a little peninsula and here is a viaduct leading over to the mainland." Chico: "Why a duck?" It goes on like that for several minutes. You will laugh and remember when the cinema was a source of entertainment.

The Marx Brothers never cease to entertain with their intellectual humor, slapstick antics and real tricks. No special effects here, just extra-special comedic scenes. The Marx Brothers are the perfect antecdote for anyone who needs a diversion, cheering up, and a laugh out loud. Add Gummo and you have the original Fab Five!

Assuming the reader of this review is familiar with the Marx Brothers, these transfers are good. HORSEFEATHERS still has a lot of frames missing from the ice-block scene, but that's been the case for as long as I can remember, and I first saw it on TV in 1973. Those frames are probably lost forever. These are hilarious movies, but you know that, and, if you're like me, you find these funnier than the M-G-M ones. If you have never seen a Marx Brothers movie, imagine Jon Stewart and his gang, but it's nineteen-thirty or so, and the politics is somewhat disguised. I will say this: As free-wheeling and, let's face it, violent, as Marx Brothers humor is, it is not anarchic. It's hilarious, sharp and knowing. But the Marx Brothers weren't looking to overthrow society. In fact, one reason they were so great is they APPEALED to pillars of the community. The Algonquin Round Table welcomed the Marx Brothers with open arms.

The headline pretty much says it all. I don't think you need some long-winded review from a wanna be reviewer. Quite simply you either like them or you don't. If you do then this is a great collection to have, if you don't, then why you even looking at it? If you want some good clean classic comedy done the way it should be done then this is it. If you want what passes for comedy now, sex, cursing, nudity, then take a pass on this. You want to see how comedy should be done, and if people were smart, could still be done, then this is it.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, wait no longer as this is the quintesential, must have collection of our favorite brother's films. The five films included here are the brothers marx at the top of their game. The verbal exchanges between them are hilarious. You'll have to see them again and again to catch all of Groucho's quick quips. Look no further - buy it and start laughing.
