All Critics (4)

Above average Hope vehicle from the era where he was just starting to slide.

August 24, 2003 | Rating: 4/5

Carismtico como sempre, Bob Hope no perde uma piada sequer - seja atravs de inteligentes trocadilhos ('Canal N5'), humor fsico ('Tenho muitos seguidores em Veneza') ou comdia de situao ('Fomos todos enganados por Emo').

Audience Reviews for Casanova's Big Night


Hope is as always rather broad but the movie overall is a funny one and the production design is amazingly beautiful.

Another fun and hilarious comedy with Hope, I really enjoyed it. It has a great supporting cast too, full of stars. My favourite was Vincent Price, who has a great part in the beginning of the movie. The story was good, not as predictable as you'd expect from this kind of movie. Also the ending was really different. If you like Hope, you should see this movie.
