Movie Info

The first "Road" picture in three years (the last was The Road to Morocco), Road to Utopia is set during the Alaskan gold rush. Bob Hope and Bing Crosby play a pair of third-rate San Francisco entertainers, Chester Hooton and Duke Johnson, who are obliged to skip town in a hurry. They book passage on a ship to Alaska, where they run afoul of escaped murderers Sperry (Robert H. Barrat) and McGurk (Nestor Paiva). Through a fluke, Chester and Duke overpower the killers, then get off the ship in

My choice as the funniest of Hope and Crosby's Road pictures. It is definitely the zaniest.

Bing and Bob off on another road, in the fourth -- and many say funniest -- of their famous 'Road' series. If nothing else, it may be their wildest.

Audience Reviews for Road to Utopia

This is my absolute favourite of the Road series, it was the second I saw (I've seen them all now.), and it's the funniest if you ask me.

My first Hope and Crosby Road picture. Robert Benchley was funny as the narrator. Crosby and Hope were both charming as expected. They are vaudeville showmen who come across an Alaskan gold rush map and head off to make a fortune with thugs on their heels. They compete for the affections of Dorothy Lamour who may be working for a gangster who is after the gold. Some good laughs. Not as many musical numbers as I expected (or as catchy). It was interesting the way Bob Hope broke the forth wall to comment to the audience, sometimes even admitting that the jokes weren't that great.

One of the best of the Crosby/Hope road movies. Very funny.

The only "Road to..." movie I've seen due to a glowing recommendation from the classic book Cult Pics and Trash Flicks, this is an amazingly funny film filled with a surprising amount of black humour. Highly recommended.
