[after Mullay Kasim rides through town with his men yelling and firing their rifles in the air]
Say fuzzy, who is that headstrong impetuous boy?
He is Mullay Kasim, the Desert Sheik.
What'd he come to town for, a manicure?
Oh, he loves the Princess Shalmar of Karameesh. He has come here to ask her to marry him.
I'd hate to be around when he comes for a divorce!

Easily the best Hope and Crosby film, "Road to Morocco" provides more laughs than most films I have seen. Most of the comedy in this film comes, naturally, from Bob Hope's superb comic delivery and amazing sense of humor. Bing Crosby also proves to be more than just a great singer. He can be a great actor and comedian as well. The material may be too over-the-top for some, such as Hope, Crosby, and Dorothy Lamour all singing synchronized to each others' voices. The film is just full of humor and does not greatly lack any fun or hilarious moments. In just about every scene there is something very funny to laugh at, from Crosby's dream seeing Hope dressed as his aunt to the talking camel, it's all just hysterical. Few comedies ever made, especially those from more recent years, can measure up to the greatness and hilarious nature of "Road to Morocco." Perhaps not absolutely perfect, as far as film-making goes, but very enjoyable and very, very funny.
