A Weekend with Lulu is a 1961 British comedy film directed by John Paddy Carstairs and starring Bob Monkhouse, Leslie Phillips, Alfred Marks, Shirley Eaton and Irene Handl.[1][2]


Young couple Timothy (Leslie Phillips) and Deirdre (Shirley Eaton) plan a romantic weekend on the coast in a caravan, called "Lulu", owned by the brother of their pal Fred (Bob Monkhouse) and which Fred will tow with his ice cream van, as he will be working selling ice cream over the weekend. When Deirdre's mother (Irene Handl) insists on going along as her daughter's chaperone, Timothy's plans are somewhat compromised. Then a train ferry mix-up lands the holidaymakers deep in France without passports or money. As they try to get back to England, they encounter a variety of problems, and end up being pursued across country by the French police.

They end at the Chateau de Chant Claire where the Comte (Alfred Marks) shows his wine cellars.

They discover they can fly out from Trouville for £25 but need to raise the cash. Fred takes bets in a local bar (run by Sid James) on the local leg of the Tour de France). Fred steals the stake money and they run off pursued by locals.

However a French motorcycle cop mistakes the ice cream van and escorts them to the airport and they escape.


Critical reception

Britmovie called the film 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."[3] TV Guide gave it two out of four stars, calling it "An enjoyable comedy."[4]
