    Tandems in Movies

    In the past week I saw two movies that showed a couple riding a tandem. The first was the old John Wayne & Maureen O'Hara movie The Quiet Man. The other was the more recent film Adult World. In both movies, the tandem figured in an impromptu chase on a stolen bike. In the former, the tandem couple was escaping a chaperone. In the latter, they were pursuing the main character's idol. Are there any other movies that incorporate tandem riding in the plot?

    I hope you are aware of Little Britain, a television show from Over There in which two of the characters use an ancient tandem bicycle as their sole means of transportation.

    Of course, being British TV they make too much of the fact that they are young men dresses as ladies who refer to themselves as we ladies and the love to go to lady places and do lady things because, after all, they are ladies.......

    There's a program called Little Britain available from my cable provider, but it must be different. It's definitely American and when fast-forwarding through a couple episodes, I never saw a tandem.

    Little Britain was a British series that played three seasons in Britain before an American version was made.

    I'm not sure of the relevance of "Of course, being British TV," but, it's British humour, innit, so it might be a bit over the top for some on this side of the pond
