Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
The fact that the audience accepts a camel talking to them is proof that Road to Morocco achieves the same degree of priceless and inexplicable lunacy that can only be found in the best Warner Bros. cartoons. The third of the "Road" movies, Morocco is unarguably the highlight of this daffy, delightful series; the rapid-fire wisecracks, ridiculous situations, comic buffoonery of the stars, get-out-of-the-way-and-just-shoot direction of David Butler, and general air of zaniness come together in a way that makes Road to Morocco something very special. Although none of the individual participants have the innate, inspired zaniness that one associates with the Marx Brothers, somehow their talents coalesce in this picture into something very close to the organized chaos of which the brothers were masters. Even the songs are good (not always the case in the "Road" shows), with the title song featuring some felicitous lyrics, and the big ballad, "Moonlight Becomes You," is genuinely romantic. Bob Hope and Bing Crosby are their usual selves, only deliriously more so, and Dorothy Lamour plays off of them with effortless skill. If there are weak links in the supporting cast (such as Anthony Quinn's one-note villain), it doesn't really matter. Road to Morocco is so "right" that its flaws don't matter.

    Oh, the joy!

    My wife, I and two kids love this movie. It is standard equipment we take (in VHS format) with us on long car trips to watch in the car. That has been going on now for about 8 years, and has become a ''family tradition''. We love it each time we play it: from the catchy tunes, to the sight gags, and the non-stop one-liners by Bob and Bing (their comedic genius is in high gear). By far, this is the best of the ''Roady'' movies the duo did with Dorothy Lamour. This movie is just a joy to watch, and watch again. If you are looking for a fun and goofy movie without a single curse word, vulgarity or nude, where you will belly laugh time and time again, this is it.
