Raising kids on the Marx Brothers

We raised our kids on Marx Brothers movies. Harpo delighted them when they were really little - then they laughed at Chico and finally as pre-teens got Groucho’s wordplay. They learned a fair amount of history too. These films are much less violent and disturbing than your average made for kids Disney/Pixar blockbuster and it’s fun to watch a movie with kids in which everyone is actually and authentically laughing their heads off.
