Storyline

A varied assortment of people are on a cross-country bus trip - salesman, school-teacher, runaway, a singer, and several nationalities---and they all have a story, except one. He has a story, also, but isn't talking about it. The wife-killer isn't much fun. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A bit like Grand Hotel...but on a bus!!
27 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Cross Country Cruise" is a very strange but enjoyable film that is a bit like "Grand Hotel" in that it's made up of lots of little stories all brought together by, of all things, a bus instead of a hotel! I think you could call it a lower-class version!

When the film begins, a woman on a double-decker bus accidentally drops something out of her suitcase on the rich guy (Lew Ayres) in his car below. Instantly smitten(??) this idiot then follows the lady as she then transfers to a cross country bus. This is creepy and far- fetched to say the least. On the bus are a variety of characters and rogues...confidence people, bigamists and more. And, during the course of this long journey, one of them becomes a murderer!!

This film entertains but isn't always logical. Apart from the rich guy who jumps onto the bus on a whim, you also have police that are about to arrest the wrong lady for murder (with no real evidence to support this) as well as allowing the rich guy to conduct the cross- examinations because...well...I have no idea why!! But it is fun and I do recommend you watch it...just be sure not to think too much as you see the stories unfold!
