Trivia

The "children" in the movie are meant to be the equivalent of 6-8 graders, but actually they are played by young adults. This was no mistake - the producers wanted to avoid having to ask the children's mothers for a fee for their appearance as required under Britain's child labour laws. See more »

My brief review of the film
8 June 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

The third Carry On film and arguably the best of the first three, this one is amusing from start and always full of laughs. The jokes are funnier than in the two previous entries, and Leslie Phillips is in particularly good form this time. It is still very silly, and in terms of the plot it is not all that much better than 'Carry On Sergeant' and 'Carry On Nurse', with the practical jokes becoming a bit tiresome towards the end and a story that is very simplistic. Still, the film comes highly recommended from me, as everything seems to fit together rather well, including appropriately used music. It is not a perfect film, but definitely a bit of a delight to watch.
