For some strange reason this film has evinced reviews which either claim that this film is the funniest thing since sliced bread or a dismal broad farce.It in my opinion is neither.It does have some funny moments but is not as consistently funny as some of the Carry Ons nor does it have great actors in every part.After all it has to be said that Ted Ray is no Sid James.Also it must be added that the idea that a 17year old schoolgirl in the early 60s could have the experience or knowledge to write a racy book is extremely unlikely.Furthermore the section where the actors play their alter egos from the book does go on a bit too long ,is a bit repetitive and not that funny.It is a reasonably funny if unmemorable film.
