Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once again hit the Road to comedy, and this time they're really in hot water - guests of honor at a cannibal feast in the darkest heart of Africa. Hope and Crosby play Fearless and Chuck, American side-show performers stranded in the jungle. After their human cannonball act starts a fire that burns down the circus, they become entangled with a larcenous pair of entertainers from Brooklyn (Dorothy Lamour and Una Merkel) anxious to separate them from their bankroll. Duped into accompanying the ladies on a safari, Chuck and Fearless soon find themselves in the clutches of savage tribesmen who pit Fearless against a gorilla in a wild wrestling match! A blend of jokes, zany adventure and songs, Road to Zanzibar became one of the big box office hits of 1941.

This Bing Crosby-Bob Hope road film lacks spontaneity and the humor seems forced.

One of the best Hope-Crosby romps highlighted by Bob wrestling a match flame-blowing gorilla.

Not one of the best "road" flicks and racist by today's sensibilities, but fun nonetheless.
