The Big Bus Reviews
Eminently quotable. From the top of my head:
"But you're a Doctor" "Yes, and I intend to keep it that way."
"Watch it he's got a broken milk carton."
"Eat one lousy foot and they call you a cannibal. What a world."
"Six Months to live, that's all you have now..."
"I know it looked like I fell but it was all part of my plan."
It has a great cast, hamming it up to the nines. Still makes me giggle.
stars Joseph Bologna, Stockard Channing, John Beck, Rene Auberjonois, Ruth Gordon, Ned Beatty, Bob Dishy Jose Ferrer and Harold Gould.
directed by James Frawley.
TunnelVision and Kentucky Fried Movie started the new funny. This was the opposite.
Occansionally very funny spoof of sinking poseidons, burning skyscrapers, run away trains and other movie topics of the '70s, but here the story evolves around a nuclear-powered bus which is supposed to go straight to Denver from New York without any stops.
Some things are more fun than others. The co-plot with Larry "JR" Hagman as the car parking doctor for example and Burt from SOAP in the living divorce that doesn´t work and the scenes form the bus drivers bar in the beginning. "Look out! He's got a broken milk carton! "
It's much like a movie like Airplane! and such, and it's good looking, It's just a bit short of jokes all around and some speed, eventhogh it is breaking wind at 90!
Great cast, kind of great fun, partually
But when a ready about the movie a was thinking it will be a very good comedy movie.
But it's not.
Just something's are funny in The Big Bus and nothing more then that.
