The third in the popular Paramount series, starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, is considered by some to be the most entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Road to Morocco

Two goof-balls get lost in the white part of Morocco.
Let me get the serious stuff out of the way. Morocco is portrayed as radically other. All of the attractive characters are white actors playing "brown-face," and all of the unsavory characters have accents and are excessively tribal and violent. This portrayal continues the traditions that Edward Said writes about in Orientalism in which he claims that films like this contribute to a racist cultural attitude vis-a-vis the "East."
That said, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope were hilarious, and in spite of the film's problems from an academic standpoint, the film is nevertheless marvelously entertaining. Of all the Golden Age singing stars, I think Crosby is my favorite. His voice is so free and easy; it looks like anyone could sing like him, but of course no one can.
The self-referential jokes are great, and Crosby and Hope have an excellent chemistry.
Overall, the film gets a one-star penalty for racism, but it's still remarkably entertaining.

Crosby gets Hope to pretend he's retarded so that he might beg for some food, but wouldn't you know it, the first guy they try it out on has a speech impediment and thinks they're making fun of the way he talks. So then, in order to pay for a meal, Crosby sells Hope into slavery. But when your new owner is Dorothy Lamour... ooh la la, who minds getting sold? It's a very cheesy film, even by 1940s standards, but at least Hope and Crosby are letting the audience know that they know that we know, by breaking down the 4th wall and giving us the inside jokes, gags and puns. It probably pays to be in a certain mood when watching this movie, and I don't think I was in it.

Not a great movie, but it is pretty funny. If you love Crosby and Hope, you'll enjoy this movie.
