Storyline

Having to leave Melbourne in a hurry to avoid various marriage proposals, two song-and-dance men sign on for work as divers. This takes them to an idyllic island on the way to Bali where they vie with each other for the favours of Princess Lala. The hazardous dive produces a chest of priceless jewels which arouses the less romantic interest of some shady locals. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Goofs

When they are on the island, Lala has no flower in her hair, then flowers at the back of her ponytail and then a big flower on the side of her head - it keeps changing. Also, her skirt is quite long up until the time the crocodile is after Bob Hope in the pond. But in the next scene, her skirt is about thigh-high. See more »

Quotes

Harold Gridley: [whistles, indicating Lala's headdress with a golden spire] This kid's got her own antenna.

Delightful
24 March 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie introduced me to the entire "Road to" series. This movie shows how movie chemistry never dies. In their sixth film together, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, and Dorothy Lamour show the fun and happiness of making films could be. They were friends and the audience can surely see that. Being the only movie in color makes the elaborate scenery come to life. The jokes are similar to the earlier films, but they are still funny. Do yourself a favor and buy this movie, it's worth it.
