3.0 out of 5 stars "If Omar Sharif lived in Gateshead I doubt if he'd be Omar Sharif", 8 Jan 2008
By 
This review is from: The Likely Lads [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
Unlike many of the TV series that produced a spin off film this one is actually funny and well worth viewing more than once.

Bob is having a mid life crisis so wife Thelma suggests that they go away for a caravanning weekend to Northumberland - caravans being a well known cure for most of life's troubles apparently - together with Terry and his current Finnish girlfriend Chris.

Needless to say it's a catalogue of mishaps. Bob's marriage is in trouble resulting in him moving in with Terry who has been dumped and is back to his usual "sensitive" self. As with all 70's films the fashions are well worth a chuckle - Thelma sports a particularly fetching purple "fondu party" type dress which is borderline offensive.

There are some fantastic lines including one of my all time film favourites:
Terry to Bob who has just poured out his heart about feeling his life is falling apart - "do you want some coffee, I'd offer you a beer but I've only got 6"

You can't beat a bit of North Eastern humour!
