    "I`d offer you a can but I`ve only got six"
    Certificate: PG
    Running Time: 86 mins
    Retail Price: £12.99
    Release Date:

    Terry Collier (James Bolam) and Bob Ferris (Rodney Bewes) have been friends since they were small children. Bob is the sensible one, doing his best to get on with his job and better himself whilst Terry is the irresponsible one, intent on living life to the full. He`s forever getting himself (and Bob) into trouble of one kind or another.

    An hilarious black comedy created on the back of the success of the hit 1960`s sitcom, The Likely Lads is set several years on from the original series and sees Terry now living with a girl called Christina who seems to have an amazing effect on him. He no longer wishes to go down the pub with Bob as he used to and even seems to be acting very responsibly - much to the astonishment of Bob and Thelma.

    Based on the TV Show. This Movie isnt a patch on the Show to be Honest.the plot is Wafer Thin.though The leads are excellent.there are some snappy lines.but its only a average movie.Picture is pretty good.The trailer is funny in a very outdated way.
