Arriving in the USA, sailors & carefree globetrotters Bob Hope & Bing Crosby find themselves down on their luck: While Hope is supposed to play the groom in a shotgun wedding, Crosby has to take up a 9-5 office job at his father's (Charles Coburn) steamship line to become a responsible citizen & good hubby to wife-to-be Judith Barrett. No wonder the 2 are on the next ship, off to Singapore, & soon set up camp at the island paradise in the South Pacific, Kaigoon. There, they swear to each other no more women, but the oath is hardly spoken do they save dancing girl Dorothy Lamour from her sadistic boyfriend Anthony Quinn & offer her accommodations in their hut. She soon becomes the housewife they never had (& never wanted to have, either), & soon they decide to throw her out again, but instead of accomplishing that of course both fall in love with her. After lots of fighting over the girl & some desperate attempts to get money &/or food, Crosby is found out by his father & fiancee. After he escapes them, again in the last moment, he proposes to Lamour but gets declined, for she chooses Bob Hope over him. Reluctantly, he gives in to his fate, travelling back to the US with father & fiancee, but meanwhile Hope finds out he was only chosen over Crosby because Lamour did not want to stay in the way of Crosby's luck, so when the trio next meets, it's a happy ending for Bing Crosby after all.

 

First in the successful series of Road-movies produced from 1940 to 1962, all starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby & Dorothy Lamour - the others are Road to Zanzibar (1941), Road to Morocco (1942), Road to Utopia (1946), Road to Rio (1947), Road to Bali (1952) & Road to Hongkong (1962 - in this one Lamour only had a cameo, though). This movie is a charming old-fashioned comedy not so much working on behalf of the jokes or the story - let alone the songs - but because of the great instant chemistry of the 3 lead actors who compliment each other rather perfectly in every scene (& there are not all that many comedy-teams you can say that about).
