In the opening musical sequence, title cards for the previous "Road" movies appear, but all are incorrect in that they prepend "The" to the title. Only this movie actually has "The" at the beginning of the title. See more »
The Road to Hong Kong was the last and least of the Hope-Crosby Road pictures but that still made this a funny movie.Hope and Crosby are con men who get involved accidentally with international spies. Some of the humor could be considered "politically incorrect" in this era but the rest is typical Road picture. Joan Collins takes over the Dorothy Lamour role and doesn't quite have the talent for it especially when compared to Ms. Lamour who makes a cameo in the movie. Peter Sellers is not to be missed,however.His cameo as the Indian neurologist is one of the funniest scenes in any movie.
I can't strongly recommend this movie,but if you like the other Road pictures or are a Peter Sellers fan you will want to check this out.
