Movie Info

Eight On The Lam is a good example of a fine cast that can do nothing to help a weak script. Bank teller Henry Dimsdale (Bob Hope) takes off with his housekeeper Golda (Phyllis Diller) and his seven children after being accused of embezzlement. Jasper Lynch (Jonathan Winters) is called in to track down Dimsdale and the missing money. Austin Willis plays Henry's scheming boss Mr. Pomeroy. Five different screenwriters are responsible for this mess that is the worst of the hopelessly unfunny Hope comedies of the 1960s.

Critic Reviews for Eight on the Lam

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Bob Hope has given the screen some of its most amusing moments, but Eight on the Lam, unfortunately, contains none of them.

June 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

With family comedies so few and far between, it's a pity this one couldn't have been better.
