Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's not the most dynamic and timeless of the brothers' movies but it has enough moments and lines to stand alongside any of them."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Coruscating surrealism"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"The Brothers offer lunacy, anarchy, and unbound nonsense for their Depression audience as they mock the foolish ways the rich behave aboard the luxury liner."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"...allows for a welcome bit of personal space between the audience and the comedians' antics."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Probably only bettered by Horse Feathers and Duck Soup in the Marx library."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Marx Bros. classic is zany slapstick done right."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Not the best Marx Brothers, but pretty close."
‑ Steve Crum,
"There's something a little special about this film in that it might well be the most wholly anarchic they ever made."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
