Movie Reviews

I Love This Movie, But...
J. Ewaniuk | los angeles, ca United States | 06/29/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The seven "Road" pictures, starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour, are among the funniest films I think this country ever produced, and ROAD TO BALI is one of the best in the series. The first four titles in this series (SINGAPORE, ZANZIBAR, MOROCCO and UTOPIA) have previously been avaulable from MCA/Universal and are of siperior quality. ROAD TO RIO was owned by Hope himself and that and several other Hope starrers were put out by RCA/Columbia about a decade ago.Unfortuneately this title has been in the public domain for so long and there have been many cheap-o video releases of it through the years. I was really looking forward to the DVD release, especially when I learned the trrailers for 6 of the 7 films were included. The price is cheap - but then so is the quality. Some of the trailers are grossly incomplete, and the film itself on this DVD ends abruptly. This is also the only color entry in the sries, but the color on this DVD is so washed out, as to be almost nonexistant. I think the film is still funny, but I can't recommend this version either - and the many topical references and Hollywood in-jokes may prove elusive for today's youth market. We'll see, however, if 50 years down the road the comedy of current stars Adam Sandler and Pauly Shore holds up as well."
Road To Bali Madacy Edition
jasperg55 | SALEM, OR United States | 03/06/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Don't get me wrong-I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I just think this particular Madacy Entertainment 2001 Edition is crummy and thats why I rate it a 3!! The extra features are great and the sound is OK, but the print is bad-mine is blurry and it is not my player. I question the other reviewers here, what with this particular road flick available in so many different offerings on Amazon, they may very well be referring to another one and not realize it. You get what you pay for on this cheaply priced one. I recommend one of the other editions. Check them (their reviews)out first before purchasing this one."
A better version
J. Ewaniuk | los angeles, ca United States | 01/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My previous review of this title was for a different edition of the same film (see below) I was in no way doubting the film itself - just that particular inadequate DVD release (this new, superior version does NOT include On The Road Tp Hollywood).
But this version, released through Brentwood Entertainment, is part of the "Bob Hope Collection" (although a disclaimer says Bob Hope himself has nothing to do with the release of these films). Unlike the previous version(s) this release has a good picture and beautiful color. It can be purchased separarely or in a collection with other Hope films (some better than others).
I still love the Road pictures and this is a particular favorite - so if you want the only color Road picture in your collection, the Brentwood release is the one to get."
The Boys Are Back
Jim O'Brien | Franklin, PA | 01/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This road picture is filled with a lot of laughs, and the boys are back in good form. The previous road picture, "The Road To Rio" was terrible (for some reason), but this one sees Bing and Bob having fun again.

The boys are older here (about 51) and it is more obvious with Bing. And, for the first time, Bob seems to have the upper hand (in that competition of theirs) as he throws some pretty good zingers at Bing.

The pace of this road picture is pretty good ... and things really get rolling once they (Bob, Bing, and Dottie) are on the boat, ready to send Bob down into the water. The funny lines come one after another (and the quality is pretty high), and it doesn't stop ... until they are captured by the natives ... and then it gets pretty dull, but that is near the end anyway.

My rating list of all seven road pictures goes like this:

1. Utopia
2. Zanzibar
3. Bali
4. Singapore
5. Morocco
6. Hong Kong
7. Rio

But there is a lot of fun to be had watching the first five. I'm glad we have them.
