This Bing Crosby-Bob Hope road film lacks spontaneity and the humor seems forced.
One of the best Hope-Crosby romps highlighted by Bob wrestling a match flame-blowing gorilla.
Not one of the best "road" flicks and racist by today's sensibilities, but fun nonetheless.
Best of the 'Road' pictures scores as a great satire of all 'Darkest Africa' movies
The second "road" movie seems to meander around Africa somewhere, I don't know about you but I've never heard of Zanzibar, weather or not it's Zanzibar, we don't know. They use all the obvious jungle jokes, it has it's moments, but it's mostly a routine comedy.
Hope and Crosby continue their travels across the dark continent as a pair of con men who meet their match in the form of hustlers Dorothy Lamour and Joan Marsh. Zanzibar was the second Road movie and this is where the formula was set with far more of the duo's fast talking bickering and less of the musical interludes. Bob Hope is now the willing victim of Crosby's hair brained money making schemes and the pair have become the immoral, back stabbing cowards we know and love! Lamour is far feistier as a rival con artist rather than the doe-eyed innocent of the first film and Joan Marsh is a welcome addition to the team. The script is little more than a string of excuses for various skits and slapstick set pieces but the laughs flow much more freely than in Singapore. Dated (especially the painfully politically incorrect opening titles), but still funny.
One of the weaker Road movies, but still plenty of fun.
