REG AND BOB TAKE A BREAK DURING FILMING

With all the 'birds' in the holiday mood Stan and Jack think they have it made, that is until they find Blakey has been appointed Cheif Security Officer. Even when Stan strikes lucky with a girl and gets a date he still has the girls mother to contend with and where ever the girl goes so does her mother.

With the offer of a cheap holiday, Mum Arthur Olive and little Arthur (Adam Rhodes) are soon on the way to the holiday centre in the trusted old motorbike and sidecar. All is well until the luggage flies of the motorbike and ends up in a river.

Stan decides the only way to be alone with Mavis  (Maureen Sweeney) is to go out to sea on a boat trip. With a reserved cabin what could go wrong, well rough seas for one.

There is even romance for Blakey "Cor Blimey" with the holiday centre nurse (Kate Williams). But with Jack on the prowl will the romance last.

Even Mum is having a fling with Bert one of the holiday makers (Wilfred Brambell)  Can Blakey and the Centre Manager (Henry McGee) keep things under control?

Stan and Jack have a few tricks up their sleeve but disaster leads to more disaster in this enjoyable film that sees all the regulars enjoying Sun, Sand Sea and er other things.
