In this Marx Brothers effort, the members of a theater group are holed up in a hotel room. They've paid nothing for the room and won't pay anything until their next production earns some cash. Zany antics with Groucho and the guys are the fare in this offering.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With far too many drawn-out chats lacking in any wit or humor, Room Service is close to a total Marx Brothers dud."
‑ Gabe Leibowitz, Film and Felt
"Still enough zaniness to make it a Marx Brother vehicle, but the craziness is diluted."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A fabulously messy tissue rejection."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Seiter's direction keeps the brothers at half speed, stuck to static material"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Some classic Marx bits make this a must-see."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Groucho, Chico and Harpo jump the shark."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Lower-key than most Marx comedies, but still fun"
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"This oft-dismissed exception in the Marx Brothers canon includes no musical numbers and only a few bits specifically tailored to the brothers...underrated."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Not a Marx Bros. movie, but a movie with the Marxes. There is a difference."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
