Description by

A wonderful spoof of disaster films, The Big Bus is about the world's first nuclear-powered bus - a 75-ton monster on 32 enormous wheels - and its maiden journey from New York to Denver. Jockeying the world's greatest bus, of course, is the world's greatest bus driver. His co-pilot is given to sudden blackouts and has a penchant for driving on the shoulder of the road. A pair of evil-doers vow to destroy the bus at the outset, thus providing lots of hilarious suspense. All-star cast includes Joseph Bologna, Stockard Channing, Ned Beatty, Ruth Gordon, Larry Hagman, and more.

Product Description:

A star-studded cast headlines this outlandish spoof on disaster films in which a gigantic nuclear powered bus--containing a swimming pool, a bowling alley, and a piano bar--and goes out of control and nearly crashes while making a coast-to-coast journey. With a cannibalistic driver (Joseph Bologna) and an oil company man who is working overtime to sabotage the bus, the passengers (Stockard Channing, Richard Mulligan, Ruth Gordon, Rene Auberjonois, and more) assured a bumpy ride. Director James Frawley's (TV's The Monkees) is an obvious influence on 1980's AIRPLANE!.

Plot Synopsis:

There's a new bus on the road -- it's nuclear powered and the highest of high-tech. Only problem is, one of the drivers of this supermodern vehicle has a slight tendency to lose consciousness from time to time...
A star-filled spoof of disaster flicks.
