The Cocoanuts

Director: Joseph Santley and Robert Florey
Year Released: 1929
Rating: 2.0

Unsuccessful first film from Groucho, Harpo, Zeppo and Chico, mainly because the two directors did not realize that the brothers are at their worst when forced to actually go through with a 'real' plot. In fact, not enough time is devoted to the four comedians, and there is only a sliver of the anarchy that would dominate their best pictures (A Night at the Opera, Duck Soup, Horse Feathers, etc.). I found it to be pretty trying.
