Cheeky chappy ice cream man Fred Scrutton (Bob Monkhouse) chauffeurs his friend Tim (Leslie Phillips) and his sexy fiancée Deirdre (Shirley Eaton) on a caravan holiday to the seaside (Lulu is the name of the caravan).
Unfortunately for the love-struck couple, Deirdre’s Mum Flo (Irene Handl) invites herself and her pet dog, Gaylord, along for the ride.
Through a series of misfortunes, they end up in France where Ted Lloyd’s screenplay has a field day poking fun at the French, who are personified by a randy count (Alfred Marks) and buffoonish policemen.
They end up having to dodge the police, stealing to get petrol and interrupting the Tour de France.
A great Carry On style comedy from Hammer, usually more renowned for their horror films.
