Audience Reviews for The Lemon Drop Kid

  • Feb 24, 2020
    Who's Damon Runyon? Another hack is all, especially compared to the giant of cinema that is Bob Hope, who takes this popular Runyon tale and steals it to make it his own (not that any writer fared differently in Hope's hands). Fans of Guys and Dolls will hear little of the witty destruction of the English language that so endeared Runyon fans, replaced with more of the same standard Hope patter instead. It's not a terrible picture for that "requisition", but it's nothing special either ultimately, light entertainment at best description, which is considerably less than what it could of been.

    Hope does his same old routine but thanks to a sweet backstory and the wonderful holiday tune Silver Bells running through the film, including a charming production number of it, this is one of his better films.

    Nice Bob Hope humor.

    This is the film that "Silver Bells" was written for! Cute story and of course Bob Hope is a smash!
