AT THE CIRCUS is an improvement upon their previous movie (the regrettable ROOM SERVICE) but still a step below the heights they had previously enjoyed at Paramount and MGM. Read morePublished on May 30, 2004 by Andrew McCaffrey
The title basiclly describes the whole movie. It`s not Duck Soup, or A Day At The Races, but it`s funny anyway. Read morePublished on December 30, 2003
