Young couple Timothy (Leslie Phillips) and Deirdre (Shirley Eaton) plan a romantic weekend on the coast in pal Fred’s (Bob Monkhouse) ice cream van and towed caravan, affectionately called “Lulu.” When Deidre’s mother (Irene Handl) insists on coming along as her daughter's chaperone, Timothy’s plans are somewhat compromised. A ferry boat mix-up further complicates things, and lands the holidaymakers in France where they encounter a variety of irate Frenchmen.

    Britmovie called it a "Breezy farce spiced with Gallic wisecracks...Bob Monkhouse, Leslie Phillips and Alfred Marks play off each other energetically, whilst Irene Handl is wonderful as the interfering busybody." and TV Guide gave it two out of four stars, calling it "An enjoyable comedy."
