Bob (Rodney Bewes) and Terry (James Bolam) find their lifelong friendship beginning to change as Terry becomes involved with a new woman and the lads' weekly drinks sessions stop. Bob is dismayed, but his wife sees the opportunity to get Terry married off and put a wedge between the friends. Of course, this being a spin-off from the popular BBC sitcom, nothing runs smoothly as they all embark on a caravan touring holiday!

What a great film this is, based on the fantastic BBC television series of the same name. It's all good clean fun that can be enjoyed by everyone. (no swearing or smut)
Bob's wife Thelma, talks Terry and his girlfriend into a caravan tour of the north of england. A great way to bring everyone together, but all ends in disaster.
My favourite part is when Bob and Terry cannot find their caravan, after a little trip to the pub without the girls.
This is a great companion to the complete BBC box set, or a great way to introduce someone to the series....

Whilst growing up I remember watching almost every feature film based on classic comedy shows, but to be honest this movie version of The Likely Lads is the only one that stands head and shoulders above all the rest.

A rather unusual pre-credits sequence shows us how Bob and Terry were conceived (both during war time) and following a great theme tune, we then get into the movie proper. Bob is having a mid life crisis as things around him change and Terry has moved with his parents to a high rise flat (you don't see his parents in the movie though) and found a rather beautiful girlfried called Chris (played by the lovely Mary Tamm). After a caravanning weekend consisting of Bob, Terry, Thelma and Chris things go from bad to worse for Bob and it does seem for a while that his marriage to Thelma is over, but eventually things do work out but what happens to Bob in the closing moments of the film is anyone's guess.

There are some real magic moments in the film, like Bob being rescued from the roof of a derelict building by firemen, to Bob falling through the floorboards of his old house as it is being knocked down.

Classic lines include Bob going to see Terry while he is fishing and Terry says "Do you want a coffee, I'd offer you a beer but I've only got six cans", or the hilarious moment when after playing bridge in the caravan Terry goes outside to relieve himself. As you can hear him tiddling Chris says how embarrased she is to which Thelma replies "Oh don't worry, it's the first time all night I've known what he's got in his hand". Priceless comedy and sadly a partnership that will never happen again as Rodney Bewes and James Bolam fell out years ago and have never spoken since.

Normally movies taken from television series tend to be less than brilliant, this movie bucks that trend and is a continuatation of the very popular series...The general theme is as usual the difference between terry and bobs life, one ordered and the norm the other well as anyone who has seen the series terry continues his usual slant on life and loveing...I wont go into the story it has been covered and dont want to ruin the movie for those who havent seen it...but if you liked the likely lads series then you,ll love the movie...a couple of favourite sayings from terry...i,d offer you a beer but i,ve only got 6 cans and i hate goodbyes so let yourself out i,m off to the pub...buy it you wont be disapointed...get yourself a couple of beers put the cat out bribe the kids and gag the wife and enjoy
