Probably more accurately described as a film version of Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads? this further proves that not all sitcoms which set the action on holiday come unstuck. Crucially – and like Holiday On The Buses, below – the holiday is in Britain, caravanning in Northumbria to be precise. Bob and Terry are taken away by Thelma and Terry’s new girlfriend, Finnish Christina with hilarious results! But of course, we know that the real comedy comes from the interaction of the Lads themselves and their nostalgic/chauvinistic/pathetic musings on their lives and life. The two B’s, Bolam and Bewes, are just great and the Clement and La Frenais script is predictably brilliant. Sod your Forrest Gump, how’s this for confectionary based philosophy; “In the chocolate box of life the top layer has already gone…and someone’s nicked the orange cream from the bottom!” Class.
