  • A nice try but no dice

    The first movie not written specifically for the Marx Brothers and it shows. Sure, there's a few added gags, but this movie is based on a very successful Broadway play and the Marx Brothers are just out of place in this film which also features a young Lucille Ball. Two stars.

    The first time I saw "Room Service" I figured it was going to be very funny. Was I ever wrong! With the Marx Bros. (Groucho, Harpo & Chico), the undisputed best screen comedy team at the time along with a young Lucille Ball, the soon-to-be queen of comedy in the same film, I was expecting non-stop laughs as with their previous comedies. All I got was flat jokes, stale sight gags and performances from the Marxes that look like they didn't really have their hearts in it. The other cast members didn't offer any laughs either. "Room Service" lacks the zip and zaniness of the Marxes other classic comedies such as "Duck Soup", "Monkey Business", "A Night At The Opera" and "A Day At The Races". When ordering "Room Service" they should had a screenplay that actually had some funny lines sent up. My least favorite Marx Bros. film. They also made it for RKO instead of their home studio MGM, which probably accounts for the absence of anything remotely amusing.

  • Not as Zany

    Without Dumont it isn't as good.

    Expected far better, some decent performances, but disappointing for a Marx Bros picture. Should have been using their own material.

    Although it certainly isn't as zany as most of the other Marx Brothers movies, it is still great fun. Ann Miller and Lucille Ball in the cast is a plus. I also enjoyed the fact there was not an out of place musical number.
