This one cares a bit too much about an uninteresting plot. There are still some fantastic laughs scattered throughout which make plodding through the tedious musical numbers and plot development scenes worth it.
A huge improvement over "A Night at the Opera" bringing back the perfectly comedic timing, with a restraint on the lunacy factor. Sure its still manic ("Who dat man" is one of the best musical moments in a film ever), but it retains the sophistication and class in a perfectly executed balancing act between the two. From the telephone call to Florida to the examination, this is the classic Marx brothers I know.
