5.0 out of 5 stars Really Complete, 8 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Road To... Complete Collection (Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Amazon are using the wrong product description for this set which does in fact contain all 7 Road movies. If not for Bing Crosby's death in 1977 there would have been an 8th.
The success of these films is in the chemistry between Hope and Crosby and the ad libbing between them which made the films so fresh. Hope was the supreme comic actor but Crosby known more for his voice holds his own remarkably well.
The first five films from the forties are all great.The Road to Hong Kong is the last and weakest of the series but the pair are in fair shape for their age and this entry is also worthwhile for the cameo appearances of amongst others Peter Sellers reprising his role from "The Millionairess " .
"Road to Bali" is apparently in the Public Domain in America so it is available from many sources not always of the best quality, the version here is superb but like "Hong Kong" has no extras.
Its hard to pick a favourite "Road" as each has it's classic scenes and the variations on the "patty cake" routine are always welcome.
One of the odd things about the series is that while the characters played by Hope and Crosby remain the same throughout and they often refer to events from one film in another their character names changed in each film.

If you like Bob, Bing and Dottie you'll love these films. Great to watch any time and fantastic to watch a great double act in action. Ok, some of the songs may be a little dated, but let's face it, you're buying into some 5 star nostalgia here!! Well worth the money to have all these great films in one place.

Fabulous, what more can I say.
These are great family viewing when you all sit down to watch something innocent and extremely funny.
Most of the films are a bit dated now, but who cares when presented with this wealth of talent.
