5.0 out of 5 stars Even funnier than the previous two! 8 Dec 2007
By FAMOUS NAME VINE VOICE
The last, but ironically and undoubtedly the funniest of the 'On The Buses' trilogy of the block buster movies.

'Holiday On The Buses' - as the title suggests, takes place away from the usual depot. Olive and Arthur's baby has now grown to a small child who wreaks havoc in a rented apartment, and just after they've re-decorated! Stan, Jack and 'Blakey' all get the sack from their old jobs, only to find new ones, but to poor 'Blakey's' horror - end up reunited once again! Stan's mum has a final fling with an Irish over-sexed gent (Wilfred Brambell) which leads to some hilarious scenes on the dance floor! This also stars Queenie Watts and Arthur Mullard. Pat Ashton is noticeably absent.

Look out for Michael Robbins' side-burns here - they're getting longer and sexier!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pratfalls and smut a go go. 5 Feb 2014
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
Come the 1970s we British really began to love our smut, it was a constitutional right to enjoy bawdy humour. Of course the quality was rarely above average, where the "Carry On" franchise would plunge the bawdy depths to try and get its laughs, and the "Confessions Of" series was never really any good to begin with anyway, but as long as they had people like Robin Askwith larking about amongst boobs, buttocks and innuendo unbound, then it was often enough for Brit cinema goers of a certain age.

On the Buses was a hugely popular TV series in the UK that ran for 7 series from 1969 to 1973. As was the case with many British situation comedies in the 70s, big screen outings would follow for the On the Buses crowd, three of them in fact, of which Holiday on the Buses was the last, and for many it was mercifully the death knell for such ventures.

It's a tired looking film when viewed now, the makers straining every sinew to keep the bawdy formula working, with much loved characters thrust into ever stupid situations to try and get laughs. Yet for fans of the series there is still some rewards to be found, but for interested outsiders looking in it's unlikely to generate more than a smile on the comedy scale.

It's hard to believe now that the likes of Stan Harper (Reg Varney) and Jack Harper (Bob Grant) could ever be seen as good looking enough to womanise and get sex on tap! But that's exactly what 1970s audiences were asked to buy into.

Just because there's snow on the roof doesn't mean the fire has gone out down below.

So here Stan the bus driver and Jack the conductor are now working at a Pontins Holiday Camp (how 70s British is that?!) and they basically try and get laid at every opportunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Room for a couple more on top! 3 Jan 2008
By Clegsy
Fab film that's worth a viewing for the 70's fashion alone!
Stan and Jack are given the sack from the bus depot but manage to find jobs working on the buses at a holiday camp, much to Inspector "I'll get you Butler" Blakey's horror as he's also working there as a security guard. Stan invites the family to come and stay on the cheap and that's where the fun begins with one mishap after another amidst Jack and Stan's tom catting about with a variety of very 70's looking women.

Choc full of funny moments including Arthur's reaction to badly coiffed Olive and her undersized bikini "dear God woman you look positively obscene" (always makes me laugh!) the mystery tour open top bus ride that descends into carnage when Stan takes a shortcut - Little Arfur' and the ice cream being a highlight - and their chalet neighbour's reaction when the family arrive "oooohhh they're not like us, they're beedin' common!"

If you fancy a bit of nostalgia for when summer holidays meant a week at Scarborough with a knotted hankie on your head, then this ones for you!
