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
I will not come with you. You'll have to learn control, you French. You won't catch me putting my nose outside this ...

Basically a story about Tim (Leslie Phillips), who wants to spend quality time with his girl Dierdre (the very pretty Shirley Eaton). He rents "Lulu", which is a trailer hitched to an ice cream truck driven by Fred (Bob Monkhouse). Tim's plans are hampered when Dierdre's mom Florence (Irene Handl) comes along for the ride, her being stuffy and wary of Tim. They head to the seashore but take a wrong turn and end up on a freight train, where they are soon in France. What follows is a screwball comedy about how they are looking to get home. They end up having to dodge the police, stealing to get petrol and being in the middle of situations (including interrupting the Tour de France!). This is a fun, non-offensive comedy with good acting from these comedy legends, especially Irene Handl. While not essential, it puts a smile on your face and keeps your interest. If you like vintage British comedy, this will be definitely worth your time.
