Copacabana Review

Marx and Miranda!?

That's right: The cigar meets the fruit basket headdress in a bizarre slapstick musical, with Groucho starring as an agent who convinces his only client (Miranda) to masquerade as two nightclub singers so she can get double pay.

Groucho is unfortunately without his brothers, and the picture gets a little thin when Marx isn't cracking wise. Rather, the musical numbers consume much of the picture, and the latter half focuses on a musical sub-story love affair between two minor characters, one of whom is Andy Russell (as himself). Miranda's moonlighting is only good for so many laughs -- about the 30 minutes it would take to fill a sitcom episode.

Otherwise, Miranda proves she can play a decent foil to Marx, who is on top of his game when it comes to witty repartee with a cast of otherwise nobodies. Worth a chuckle.
