Bob Hope and Phyllis Diller
30 May 2002 | by (Memphis, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I own this movie and I really did not think that it would be all that great. But I was pleasantly surprised. It's GREAT and Bob Hope and Phyllis Diller work great together. I highly recommend it. I love the two of them together. I have to say that I consider Bob Hope to be in the top 10 of funniest comedians.
