holiday on the buses is a classic British movie, with plenty of jokes and comic references, this truly is up there with the carry on movies and not forgetting the confession movies. quality 10/10. not too be missed!!!! on the buses, mutiny on the buses and holiday on the buses completes the hat-trick, these films are a must for any fan of the 60's , 70's British movie era. all movies are just over an hour and twenty minutes long, I've been a fan since i was a boy. the story: fired from the bus depot jack and stan go beside the seaside on a holiday camp in wales to run the resorts transport, but when their former inspector blakey turns up as chief security inspector all hell is gonna break loose for stan and jack.
