Room Service

HOLLYWOOD—I had no idea what to expect with my first encounter with the Marx Brothers. Not being a great fan of slapstick, I wondered if my choice for a comedy had been the wrong one. "Room Service" is not one of the Marx Brothers' more well-known movies, but I found it to be entertaining.

In this 1938 film, Groucho Marx stars as Gordon Miller, the producer of the play "Hail and Farewell". He and his entire cast are being housed at the Great White Way Hotel, where they are rehearsing. The comedy begins when Miller is told he needs to pay his growing bill today or get out. With the help of his two assistants (brothers Chico and Harpo), he tries everything to elude hotel management and secure a backer for his play.

I actually found myself laughing out loud at times to the witty one-liners. This is not just your grandparents' kind of humor. Watch and Enjoy.
