Fifth Road movie loses a bit of steam but is still fun.

Bing and Bob are in fine form in the fourth "Road" film; Dorothy Lamour is along for the trip, of course, and Crosby sings two good songs: "But Beautiful" and "You Don't Have to Know the Language"(with the Andrews Sisters).

Hope, Crosby and Lamour take their act to Brazil, one liners and in jokes littered behind them like a ticker tape parade. The best part of the Road series: the forays through the fourth wall, the way the films embraced the reality that nothing in the film was real but that we are watching it and that they are doing it. In this one look for The Andrew Sisters and Jerry Cologna in highlighted cameos. All in all, more of the usual fun.

Quite dated but some good moments.

This Road film follows two fugitive musicians played by Crosby and Hope as they end up in Rio. It has some bizarre moments but the "You're in the groove Jackson" scene is hilarious and it was especially memorable for some reason. This is another solid film in the series.

I love these old films. Great partnership, classic old jokes. Pity about the singing.

Another very loved movie in the "Road to" series. Also the first of the series to be produced by Crosby and Hope.

Rio was a great choice for a road to movie. I love Crosby's serious attitude with basically the whole thing HA!

I saw all of these "Road to..." movies with Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. They're delightful for the elderly and fun to watch if you're feeling nostalgic or just like old,old-school vaudeville-type movies. Same plot, same idea. Music, dancing and silly jokes that most people would find boring.

still the same general brand of comedy from the earlier films, but a lot less hammy and a lot more toned-down overall. while Bob Hope maintains much of the same deadpan charm that makes him so enjoyable in previous efforts, Crosby appears a bit off the mark and isn't nearly up to his usual game. Gale Sondergaard makes a great appearance as the villain, though. the music was pretty good as well. laugh-out-loud moments and classic style aside, this is probably one of the weakest films in the series.

Yet another great Bob Hope and Big Crosby "Road" movie. This one takes them on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with a hypnotized Dorothy Lamour. Plenty of laughs and very entertaining.

The three guys who don't speak English steal the show...even from Bob Hope.
