I remember this as being quite good and a lot of fun
18 February 2003 | by wmattifoSee all my reviews

I was in my teens when this first aired and my family thoroughly enjoyed this special. Bob cracked the usual political jokes and the guest stars were at top form. Bob and Sammy did a soft shoe routine that was lots of fun. This was Bob Hope at his best in one of his later specials. No one will ever be able to take Bob's place and I'm just glad that I was able to see Bob on TV. The kids today don't know what they're missing.
