Storyline

Jeff and Turkey, two wild and crazy guys adrift on a raft in the Mediterranean, are cast away on a desert shore and hop a convenient camel to an Arabian Nights city where Turkey soon finds himself sold as a slave...to luscious Princess Shalmar of Karameesh. Naturally, Jeff would like to rescue Turkey from this "dire" fate, even if it means taking his place! But they haven't figured on virile desert chieftain Mullay Kassim, who has designs on the princess himself... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Movie great fun, terrific music.
2 September 2000 | by (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

A pleasure to see three old pros in action and to throw in the menacing Anthony Quinn as a foil to the boys is perfect. I love the music in every Road picture and this one is well above par for the course. What a joy to sit down to watch after a long, hard days' work.
