Be quiet, Gaylord! You just take us back to Folkestone
It's you that's common! You take us back to Folkestone else I'll write to British Railways. It's coming to something... first they take you to where you don't want to go, then they keep putting the fares up!
You've got to come with me, Madame

Nothing funnier than four Brits (two blokes, a bird, and a matron) heading off for a weekend in the English countryside and mistakenly ending up in France, a country which they manage to turn on its head during the Tour de France. The ad executive and his fiancé hoped for a quiet weekend at the seashore in Lulu the caravan (that's a camper for the American reader), towed by his unscrupulous friend driving an ice cream truck (he has 200 wt of ice cream he hopes to sell down at the shore for some side money). Of course, the future mum-in-law invites herself along and her stodginess provides some of the best comedic moments.
Very well crafted film and still funny after all these years. Great cast including Sid James in a small role. Many other faces you'll recognize from the Carry On films, as well.
Shown on TCM on American cable television.
