Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It places the Marx Brothers clearly among the few fine comedians of our day."
‑ Mark Van Doren, The Nation
"Proof of the absence of God comes when Marx Brothers gags get the scissors ... yet we still must endure a show-stopping (in the worst sense of the word) water-ballet number that's a dose of Robitussin when the movie needs a double espresso."
‑ Mark Bourne, DVDJournal.com
"When Groucho's in charge of things -- and that's most of the time -- A Day at the Races is full of great stuff."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A Day at the Races (1937) is a classic Marx Brothers comedy, often argued as one of their three or four best works."
‑ Tim Dirks, Tim Dirks' The Greatest Films
"Marx Bros.' big hit may miss with today's kids."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Vintage Groucho, Harpo and Chico."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"Groucho's power is his smoothness with language, his Kryptonite Chico's elaborate doublespeak."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"...may not inspire one to gales of laughter the way the earlier Marx Brothers films did, but there are still some good laughs here."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A winner at the box office."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
