Duck Soup

The random singing caught me off guard. The other actors looked a bit condescending when the Secretary started singing, and then the others started singing. It was odd. But I smiled and laughed at the "Can't you see what I'm trying to tell you I love you!" line. Because it's such a famous line and I've heard it a lot, but I'm glad that I know where it's from now. I liked that one of the spies was wearing a deerstalker. I found the mirror scene towards the end interesting, not because of the scene itself, but because of the decision to have no audio whatsoever. It was odd. Overall I liked it. It was funny, lots of good, quick-witted dialogue, and the Marx brothers are very well versed in physical comedy.

  1. I thought the singing was weird too! Not what I was expecting at all.
