Thirty stuntmen portrayed the drunken bus drivers on a spree. See more »
When the bus is hanging over the cliff, it would not rock. The weight of the pool water and nuclear engine would keep the rear section firmly on the ground. The articulated section would break, sending the forward section down the ravine. See more »
A disaster-movie spoof before Airplane! and just as funny!
This film is a disaster movie spoof that pre-dates Airplane! It's about a giant nuclear-powered bus complete with a bowling alley and pool. Very very funny, okay, not as funny as Airplane!, but better than Airplane 2. The scene in the milk bar where two bus drivers fight with broken milk cartons is great, lots of goofy characters, great cast. Ruth Gordon! Stockard Channing! Richard Mulligan! Lots of 70's fun!
