The title is 1930s slang for nonsense—and that’s just what the marvelous Marx Brothers deliver in this zany tale of newly elected college president Quincy Adams Wagstaff (Groucho Marx, declaring “whatever it is, I’m against it!”), who must produce a winning football team in order to save his job. But when he inadvertently recruits the wrong guys (Harpo and Chico), comic chaos ensues. Among the highlights are the inventively recurring renditions of the musical number “Everyone Says I Love You.”
