Womanizing Brit Charlie Cartwright is about to conduct Worldwind Tour #225, a nine country, eighteen day bus trip from London to Rome. He uses these tours in large part to catch up with his vast stable of casual girlfriends located in each of the visited cities. Within the group of disparate Americans on this tour, most who have never been to Europe, and the reason for them taking this trip are: parents who want to get their hormone driven teen-aged daughter away from her boyfriend despite the fact that the father doesn't want to leave the familiarity of home; a not-so woman's man who wants to prove to his friends that he had a beautiful woman in every country; an ethnic non-Italian speaking Italian who wants to catch up with the relatives he's never met; a WWII veteran who wants to re-experience the best times he's ever had; and a man who solely wants "free" souvenirs.

A delightful film which I have seen so many times. Having lived in Belgium I especially liked the comment about The Grand Place in Brussels, 'What's so grand about this place, take off the gilt and what have you got? Tenements.'
The trip through London passing Woolworths etc and the comment 'It's just like home.'
Packing all those toilet rolls.
The comment by the Luxembourg waiter when asked for something the locals eat, 'the locals don't eat here, we only cater for our tourist friends.'
The collapse of the suitcase of the man who stole things from his hotels.
All in all a nice, funny, comfy film.
Ian McShane and Suzanne Pleshette's performances are just right.
