Description by OLDIES.com:
This adventure comedy, starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby is the sixth entry in their madcap Road series. Hope & Crosby play American vaudevillians, George Cochran and Harold Gridley, stranded in Australia and desperate to avoid a dual shotgun wedding. To escape, they sign on as deep-sea divers for an evil South Sea Island prince, and then the fun begins in earnest. They hunt for treasure, wrestle an octopus, fall in love with the same princess, befriend a gorilla, and encounter an active volcano. Road to Bali is packed with slapstick, "insider" jokes, witty gags, and an exciting array of guest appearances, including Bing's brother Bob Crosby, Jane Russell and Humphrey Bogart.
The only color road picture Bob Hope and Bing Crosby ever made, the inimitable comedy duo set out to rescue a native princess, the lovely Dorothy Lamour, from a plethora of jungle dangers. Guest appearances by Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, and Jane Russell.
George and Harold are two vaudevillians forced to hightail it out of Australia by a young woman's overprotective father. The wisecracking duo end up on the island of Bali, where they soon go to work for Prince Arok -- and become smitten with the princess, Lalah. But when George and Harold discover that Arok intends to steal a treasure belonging to Lalah, they try to foil his greedy plans. Will they win the princess' heart if they succeed'

On the Road Again

Hope, Crosby and Lamour; a terrific trio that delivers solid entertainment from start to finish. The ROAD movies are just plain fun; the wisecracks come fast and furious. The stars don't take themselves seriously and they seem to enjoy what they're up to in each movie. ROAD TO BALI is no exception, filled with in-jokes, sight gags, forgettable songs and general silliness guaranteed to keep you laughing. If Alpha Video would only get their hands on more of these comic gems...
Classic Bob Hope & Bing Crosby picture.

This is a great comedy for any classic collection. It's good to see a comedy that dosen't have to be insultive or with foul language. This is a movie that you can also watch with your young ones and not have to worry about the content.
The thing about these "Road" movies is that Hope & Crosby also involves the viewer with inside jokes, like when Hope says about Crosby,"He's going to sing, now you can go get the popcorn!" Now, all six "Road to" pictures need to be brought out on DVD. How about making a Road to box collection?
The movie is crisp & clear with decent sound. There are no extras, but with this price, DVDs never have any.
