"Entertaining the Troops scores not only as vividly told history, but also as entertainment unto itself…as technically proficient as a good feature film.  Saving the best for last, Mugge presents in the last half hour a recent informal reunion of Bob Hope, Frances Langford, dancer Patty Thomas and musician Tony Romano, who (with Colonna) formed the core of Hope's legendary touring troupe…  It's a stirring look at Hope in his heyday, and a reminder that he is the consummate entertainer.  The men in the trenches in World War II knew that, and this tape will help ensure that the rest of us will never forget."
- Andy Wickstrom, The Philadelphia Inquirer
