Gotta have H.O.P.E !

I absolutely adore Bob Hope..! His joke's and his timing were top shelf..! Add in Phyllis Diller ..OMG and Johnathan Winters ..a barrel of laughs.. ! I the 1960's he appeared in a bunch of movies...for a younger generation who weren't familiar with his projects that he shared with Bing Crosby back in the 1930's... This movie has really good timing ..laughs wise. The opening sequence of the dog at the "Car-wash" had me in stitches and the barbs traded between him and Ms.Diller before he found the 10k bills. Yes at one time banks would give you 1k dollar bills ..and bigger bills existed ..Then around 1995..they removed them from circulation.. I tried my to obtain one..for souvenir purposes..but I missed it by a month.. Now really who would ever report losing 10k in a parking lot and especially one on a money clip..? OMG..I have found 100,50,20's,10's,5's and singles over the years.. Even tons of coin change.. Anyway the sexy girl friend was played by Bristish "eye-candy" actress Shirley Eaton ..She is 83 years of age..She is known for the James Bond movie "Gold Finger " in 1964 and "Ten Little Indians" . The story line was pretty good and it is suitable for the family.. Jill St John also starred in a James Bond film " Diamonds are Forever"..so Mr.Hope had the honor of having these two lovely ladies in his film.. His production company "Hope Enterprises"..backed this little endeavor.....

Very cute movie

It's funny to see a decent family involved in "crime", when you usually only see the bad guy running around trying not to get caught!

Classic Family Entertainment
Verified purchase
Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, and Jonathan Winters equal lots of laughs, throw in 7 kids and the antics add up to clean family classic fun. Cute story line where Bob Hope gets himself into trouble without even trying and creates a mess for himself, his girl and his 7 children to try to stay one step ahead of the cops as he tries to clear his good name. Love his devoted, nutty babysitter, Physllis Diller who works hard to thwart her new cop boyfriend Jonathan Winters from making the arrest of his career. All in all, its a clean funny family film that's well worth the watch.

Amusing Bob Hope vehicle
Verified purchase
Jonathan Winters, Bob Hope, Jill St. John, Phyllis Diller, and Shirley Eaton, not to mention a couple of brief appearances by well known character actors of the Sixties, all rolled into one amusing romp! This may not be the funniest movie Bob Hope ever made, but if you love the above actors as I do, you will still enjoy it. Having never seen or heard of this one, I took a chance on the MGM "DVD-R" and found the quality better than I expected. The aspect ratio seems correct (I had just finished watching two Blu ray movies which were definitely correct ratio, and this appeared correct without excess stretching or compression), the colors are fairly vivid, and resolution is good. There are no extras, and sadly no subtitles, but I would recommend this title anyway, because the actors' expressions are nearly good enough to see without language! Given the lack of extras or subtitles I think the price should be under $15. If you can find it near this price I would recommend a purchase, otherwise I would recommend a rental.

Another Bob Hope and Phyllis DillerClassic
Verified purchase
You will not be disappointed in this farce ! What a classic movie to own ! Watch for a mistake in the chase scene. Here is the set-up: Jonathan Winters are in a blue car chasing Bob Hope. Phyllis Diller sticks her head out the window to attempt shooting tires out on the car that Hope is driving. Instead, a freak thing happens and the bullet ricochets; and blows out the tire of the blue car which they are driving instead. After they pull over, watch the people walking on the sidewalk in the background. The are walking by, and turn to walk around the side of the building. A few seconds later, they walk around it again. The continuity person goofed up ! These old comedys will lift your spirit do a time when things were a little less stressful in life !

Bob Hope silliness
Verified purchase
A classic comedy starring Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, and Johathan Winters. This movie runs 1hr 47 mins and originally came out in 1967. This videocassette was released in 1997 by MGM/UA. The story is about a single-dad bank teller who happens to find $10,000 in a supermarket parking lot. He then gets accused of embezzling $50,000 from his bank.

All manner of zaniness erupts as this dad goes on the lam with his 7 kids. I really enjoyed seeing real scenes of areas around Los Angeles and various neighborhoods in the late 60's. The bright colors, clothing style, furnitures, cars, etc, really capture a flavor of the times. Some of the humor is mildly suggestive, which I like. Overall the movie is very silly in a late 60's kinda way but charming at the same time.
