    Like Webster's dictionary, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour are "Morocco-bound" in the third rollicking entry in their popular series of Road comedies. Survivors of a Mediterranean shipwreck, stowaways Jeff (Crosby) and Orville (Hope) paddle to a North African shore and hitch a camel ride across the desert to Morocco. In order to buy food, Jeff sells Orville into slavery - but Orville's owner turns out to be the luscious Princess Shalmar (Lamour), who quickly offers to become his wife. Unfortunately, the true reason for the Princess' proposal soon becomes clear. Her prophet has warned that her first husband will meet a violent death within days of their marriage! An Oscar nominee for Best Original Screenplay, Road to Morocco is highlighted by Bing's rendition of one of his best-loved songs, the unforgettable "Moonlight Becomes You."

    5.0 out of 5 stars THE ROAD MOST TRAVELED October 25, 2001
    Format:VHS Tape
    A top moneymaker in 1943, with an Oscar-nominated screenplay, ROAD TO MOROCCO is perhaps the most satisfying of the series in which the public loved from 1940-1962. Here, Hope and Crosby often step out of character to comment on the fictional situation and the processes of film communication. Hope and Crosby sing to the camera, and the lyrics include "I'll lay you eight to five we meet Dorothy Lamour" and "For any villians we may meet we haven't any fears - Paramount will protect us 'cause we're signed for five more years". Other illusion-breaking instances are those which refer to the earlier "Road" films. At one point, Hope and Crosby attempt the "pattycake" routine they had used in ROAD TO SINGAPORE and ROAD TO ZANZIBAR to get the best of their adversaries; but when it fails to work in this case, Crosby comments "Yessir Junior, that thing sure got around" After they escape from Kassim and are onboard a ship bound for America, Lamour remarks to Crosby, "I get the strangest feeling we've been through all this before" to which Crosby replies "I trapped you again." The film lapses into total artificiality at the end, when they are stranded on a life raft. Here, Hope goes into an overdramatic "mad" scene and when Crosby informs him that the New York skyline is in the background, Hope remarks, "You had to open your big mouth and ruin the only good scene I have in the picture". "I might have won an Academy Award". The subsequent ROAD pictures were even more blantantly artificial. Only in ROAD TO UTOPIA did Hope winover Lamour. In general, Hope's contributions to film comedy have too long been disregarded. Read more ›

    Format:DVD
    The classic 1942 comedy "Road to Moroco", the 3rd in the "Road" series, starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. This is my favourite- great songs and zany comedy. Decades before Monty Python, the top-of-their-tree talents combined here created an outrageously original and sensationally surreal comedy! Crosby and Hope were two of the biggest box-office draws at the time, and they enjoy themselves immensely in "Morocco", with in-jokes aplenty (they even make fun of the Road series itself!) and double-and-triple crosses in abundance, as they try to get themselves out of trouble and into romance, Bing the smooth, crooning charmer and Bob the cowardly (but loveable) wanna-be. Dottie is beautiful as ever, as are the sets and the support cast includes a menacing Anthony Quinn. The Johnny Burke-Jimmy Van Huesen score includes "Road to Morocco" (Bob and Bing on a camel- "Where we're goin', why we're goin', how can we be sure? I'll lay you eight-to-five that we meet Dorothy Lamour!"); "Ho Hum" and "Moonlight Becomes You" (a classic Bing number, which he solos and reprises with Hope and Lamour). They don't make `em like this anymore!

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Best June 15, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    I have seen all of the Road to's and I think this is the best on yet.I can watch it over a million times and still think that they are funny. They are the best team ever.They have many more great songs in this movie like..... "moonlight becomes you"A hole in my shoe" and my personal favorite "Were of on the Road to Morocco"I think the best scene is when Bing and Bob are in the desert, and they see a Dorthy Lamour mirage, and all three of them sing "moonlight becomes you" and they all exchange vocies. It is a utterly slap-happy picture.I advise anyone who like Bing and Bob to buy this movie! not to rent because you can't ever see it enough!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Lighten up, pal. May 13, 2003
    Format:DVD
    Jeez, I don't know if you can see the review I'm looking at, but he gave this two stars. If you look at his history, the "disgruntled Dominican" gave "Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town" five stars. I think that's all you need to know. This is a light, funny entertaining film that holds up well unless you're a disgruntled Dominican buckethead.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Screwy but gentle October 28, 2006
    Format:DVD
    Perhaps offered the breakthrough role for the great Anthony Quinn. Surprising to think this picaresque romp was made in 1942. The picture quality is excellent. If a buddy movie like this were made today it would move a lot faster, contain several nudes, probably a few porn scenes, and every third word would start with F. Also, everything would be dirty. Just before, and during, WWII, everything was clean. The boys were clean, their clothes were clean, the desert was clean, and the girls were sweet and beautiful, and clean. Have we really progressed? Watching this is nostalgic. Many of the lines are witty and funny. We're off on the Road to Morocco is a great song, and memorable. I've always remembered it, anyway. But the whole atmosphere is now a thing of the past.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best Road Movie July 2, 2000
    Format:DVD
    This is Bing and Bob's finest and funniest road picture by a wide margin. Their interplay and chemistry together is shown to its best advantage here. Bing's two songs, "Moonlight Becomes You" and "Just Found a Hole in My Shoe" are catchy and wonderfully sung. Bob Hope is, as always, absolutely hilarious. His comedic timing is seriously under-rated. It's no wonder Woody Allen thinks he's the greatest movie comedian in history.
    There are a number of inside jokes in this movie, and younger viewers will not understand the references to Bob's Pepsodent radio show, Bing's lousy horses and the Kraft Music Hall. But it's fast-paced, genuinely funny and a blast from first to last.
