If you're not already a Bob Hope enthusiast you won't likely be converted by this, his latest King Lear slapstick.

Audience Reviews for My Favorite Spy


A fun comedy with Hope, it's mostly funny, but there are some lulls. Overall, it's a very enjoyable comedy, and I liked it, but it could have been better, like maybe a little less predictable.
