The ultimate disaster movie parody. A nuclear powered bus is going non-stop from New York City, New York to Denver, Colorado, and is plagued by disasters due to the machinations of a mysterious group allied with the oil lobby. When the driver is injured, a washed up, down on his luck, but used to be great type, who as it happens, used to be engaged to the inventor's daughter is brought in to drive the giant bus which includes a one lane swimming pool and a one lane bowling alley.Written by

Stockard Channing claims she nearly drowned for real during the soda fountain overflow scene. See more »
After crashing into the bus, the Chevrolet pickup's front end is damaged beyond recognition from just crashing through a glass window. No metal vehicle would suffer that amount of damage from just crashing through a pane of glass. See more »
Quick, how many decisions have I made today?

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!
