5.0 out of 5 stars Horsin' around opera 13 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You know what to expect from a Marx brothers film and it doesn't disappoint. Not as full on zany as Duck Soup, but still plenty as daft. I hadn't even heard of it til recently so i expected it to be below par. Far from it. I enjoyed it much more than i expected.

Being the Marx brothers, you have surely one of the cleverest bunch of clowns of all time. Slick variety style routines, always a lot of fun. The added element to this movie were the more easy going and gentle moments. Eg - Harpo playing a weaver's loom (harp) alongside the flute of the Native Americans. Beautiful music. After all that reckless slapstick, those moments felt really quite touching.

Not a classic by critic's standards but a very sweet film in it's own right. Plus the humour is so alive, so care free and in a world of it's own that it hasn't really dated. I much preferred this to Laurel and Hardy's 'Way out west' which apart from the classic musical 'Lonesome pine' scene, seems a little slow and laboured when compared to this.

Fresh, warm hearted and a definitely a must see for Harpo fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny 3 Sep 2014
By Phillyfan VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A lesser known Marx Brothers film but still well worth watching. No, it is not as good as Duck Soup or A Day At the Races (so see them first) and, yes, it does look as if it was filmed on a vacant lot from another film but it still has plenty of laughs and routines to remember. Even a less good Marx Brothers beats most of the competition

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but not great Marx mayhem 14 Sep 2001
By C.H. - Published on
The Marx Brothers entered their last decade as a team with "Go West", which pales along some of their earlier films but still has some great moments. In the hilarious opening scene, Chico and Harpo bilk Groucho out of his fare money at a train station, and then Groucho walks off naturally thinking that he has the upper hand. Film sags somewhat in the middle, redeemed by some funny bits in a saloon. The last third of the movie has a wonderful climax aboard a train, where the boys' incompetence causes havoc but of course they get the bad guys in the end. A fun little movie, one of their better 1940's efforts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny but not classic 1 July 2003
By Peter Ingemi - Published on
If you expect to see the reason why the Marx brothers are considered one of the greatest comedy acts of all time this is not the movie for you.
If you want to see a funny movie with great sight gags, a bunch of fine one liners and some great physical humor then you will enjoy this picture.
Sometimes the problem with making so many great movies over so many years is that you always expect perfection. Oscar is a funnier movie than this, but this is a funny movie. You will laugh and smile and that's the reason to watch a comedy isn't it?

4.0 out of 5 stars Back on their right truck. 12 Mar 2001
By "harpo99" - Published on
After a declining and dissapointing change of At the Circus, their first work at MGM, the Marx Brothers seem to get back on the right truck in Go West in many ways. On the top sequence, Chico and Harpo trap Groucho at the train station: the two get the ticket to ride (as a result of Chico's skillful yell, "Nine dollars change, please!") and go to the west, while Groucho goes broke. Compared to At the Circus, laughing spots are more successfully and equally placed over the whole plot.
Also, in spite of the setting of the story, in the late 19th century, the Brothers highlight themselves with individual musical performances: Chico with his unique "shooting keys" of piano at the bar, Harpo with incredibly perfect harp playing at the native American's village (*Harpo actually transforms a mysterious outdoor object with strings into a harp!), and Groucho with backing vocals in two songs (*not his complete solo performance, but still good enough). Your 80 minutes will fly much faster than you expect if you watch this Go West!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best 22 Nov 2000
By Tuco - Published on
This is one of my favorite Marx brothers films. I can't see how Leonard Malt-ed say it was a disappointment. If you want to be disappointed, see At The Circus or The Big Store. This is a great flick with tons of Marx style bits from the get go. It opens with the awesome "9 dollars change" bit to the big train finale, scripted by Buster Keaton himself!!! Dont miss it!!!!! TIM-BER!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Marx Brothers 19 Nov 2003
By "bogart_fan" - Published on
"Go West" is a guilty pleasure of mine. Being a big fan of The Marx Brothers, I am always ashamed whilst talking to fellow film buffs when I say that one of my favorite Marx Brothers films is 1940's Go West. And while it's not Monkey Business, Horse Feathers, or A Night at the Opera, it is still a highly enjoyable film, partly due to my love for western films. Some good gags in this one, including the hilarious pick-pocketing scene in the begining and the wild chase on the top of a train at the climax. Overall, if you are a fan of classic comedies or the Marx Brothers, you won't want to miss this. It's not perfect, but it's a lot of fun.
