Bland Comedy Of Historical Interest Only
8 June 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The short comedy "Going Spanish" (or "Bob's Busy Day"), is quite interesting as one of the very earliest film appearances by Bob Hope, but in itself it is a rather bland feature, and the movie has only a couple of really good laughs.

The story has Bob, his fiancée, and her mother traveling in South America. They visit a town in which, on a certain day, you can do or say anything to anyone, as long as you sing a song to them afterwards. That's a rather limited premise even for a short comedy, and although the movie tries to squeeze as much out of it as possible, there are really only a couple of decent laughs (the funniest of which involve physical comedy of the Three Stooges type).

For the most part, this is really only of historical interest, but then again, anything with Bob Hope is at least worth watching.
