The Helping Hands agency employs some very strange people to perform some very strange jobs! Even the simplest of tasks get bungled by the incompetent but lovable staff, as they get given jobs ranging from taking animals for walks (no ordinary animals you understand) to demonstrating new products at a large and prestigious exhibition...

Sam Twist: Well if I do, Miss Cooling, I shall behave myself as an ex Corporal of the Pioneer Corps should. Name, rank, number and keep your hand off my shovel, and that's your lot.
Miss Cooling: Don't go! Think of brainwashing.

Carry On Regardless - another classic
22 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film centred around The Helping Hands business is full of laughs.Favourite sketch is Sam Twist (Kenneth Connor) in the club as steward and is told not to make a sound.You can't help but laugh as he gradually loses the plot when he sees an old man's fly undone on his trousers,an old man falling asleep reading a book and an old man sleeping as his wig slips down over his face.Top notch.A film (like all Carry On films)that I never get sick of watching with all the early Carry On regulars present.Typlical Carry On gags and double-entendre with the campness of Charles Hawtrey and Kenneth Williams always guaranteed to make me laugh.
