Movie Info

Bob Hope's first starring vehicle for producer Sam Goldwyn borrows the title of Bob's 1942 autobiography They Got Me Covered and very little else. Co-scripted by Leonard Q. Ross (aka Leo Rosten), Leonard Spigelgass and Harry Kurnitz (among many others!), the film casts Hope as Robert Kittredge, the Moscow correspondent for a major American news service, who is fired when he neglects to file a report about Hitler's invasion of Russia. Hoping to get back in the good graces of his boss Norman Mason

It's just too clear how hard the boys were trying.

It drags in some critical phases, it labors in obvious spots and the climax is too manufactured. But there are side-splitting moments in it.

Without the talent of Bob Hope this picture would be one dull thud.

A tedious romp through familiar Hope territory.

Hope is in his element, and it is impossible not to be swept along by the enthusiasm of his performance.

Audience Reviews for They Got Me Covered

I really should have written about this movie when I saw it, I remember really liking this movie, but now the summary doesn't sound familiar. I really want to see this movie again, I love Bob Hope.
