When the bus is being pulled out of the garage, the top of the front section just fits under the top of the door opening, but the back section of the bus includes an observation dome that is taller then the front of the bus. It could've never been pulled out of the garage. See more »

It's sad, but I've seen this film over 100 times! Favourite scenes: The fight in the bus garage: "Watch it, he's got a broken milk carton"! The bar, where the pianist sings "Six Months To Live" to the terminally ill passenger! The Bi-Centennial dinner scene, where Dan denies eating 180 passengers, but admits to eating a foot: "Eat one lousy foot and they call you a cannibal"! The cliff-hanger ending: "I know it looked like I fell, but it was all part of my plan"! All in all brilliant.
