      Paul Trench London Evening Standard All this adds up to a good evening's entertainment. May 27, 2021 Full Review Steven D. Greydanus Decent Films Lighthearted and nonsensical, sophisticated but not overplotted, Road to Morocco represents the point at which the Road-movie formula had hit its stride but hadn't yet descended into self-parody. Rated: B+ Aug 10, 2003 Full Review Zita Short InSession Film Personally, I didn’t think that the chemistry between Hope and Crosby was all that sparkling. Rated: D+ Feb 7, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Full of nonsensical, fantastical feats of stupidity and playful sabotage - even though few of them are memorable and most are of the low-effort, cartoonish variety. Rated: 4/10 Jan 2, 2022 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com The third in the popular Paramount series, starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, is considered by some to be the most entertaining. Rated: B+ Apr 29, 2012 Full Review Susan Granger www.susangranger.com Rated: 3/5 Nov 17, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      CodyZamboni Movie is an amusing musical comedy, and another successful pairing of the two stars. What I liked best were the clever break the fourth wall jokes, some that involve talking camels. Dorothy Lamour is stunning and charming, but she has competition with lots of beautiful harem girls. I also enjoyed the second unit location shooting in the Arizona sand dunes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Hope and Crosby are two childhood fighting pals, first on a raft at sea, then reaching a desert shore. A camel finds them and they ride to Morocco. With no money, Crosby sells Hope into slavery (without the latter's knowledge), only to find him with the local princess, who he now wants for herself. Rivalry and treachery ensue. Yes, the movie is old, silly escapist entertainment for a worried wartime audience, but still works today thanks to broad if crazy humor and great performances by the leads, who also take jibes at their employers and government censors without overdoing it. Classic songs also make the experience enjoyable. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review steve d The best of the road films. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Road to Morocco (1942) Staring Bing Crosby & Bob Hope The strangest part was the camels with the animated talking bottom lips and animated eyes towards the end of this film. I personally did not find this film funny at all. The comedy was slap stick like and it did not make me laugh. What got me was how much of this film looked like it was either blue screen or there was a projected background for scenes rather than use a real environment that looked more like the desert or a location. I thought it was dumb that each time they got ship wrecked it was for smoking in a powder room. It was like come on. After they got Shipwrecked for smoking onboard a ship. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/01/20 Full Review Audience Member Reading the 2nd volume of the bio of Bing Crosby, I realized I have never watched a "Road" movie with Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. The movie is topical (1942!) and just plain silly fun Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member The best, GREATEST comedy movie ever made! With 2 of the best movie songs ever sung: the title song and Moonlight Becomes You! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
