Many hands make light work but Helping Hands sometimes make things worse., 13 May 2010
Author: tyler-and-jack from Edinburgh.

This is the one with the gang working for the "Helping Hands" agency, a business run by Sid James that matches up it's employees to the various, and highly varied, needs of it's customers.

Everyone is present and correct and giving it their usual patter: Kenneth Williams is indignant, Charles Hawtrey is absurdly effete and ends up being given some very unsuitable assignments, Joan Sims does some wonderful drunk acting, Kenneth Connor gets things muddled up and Sid James rolls his eyes as things get chaotic around him. Hattie Jacques appears to look momentarily affronted, Liz Fraser has a couple of funny moments and Terence Longdon is there for no discernible reason, he does nothing of note and his character may as well not be there at all.

With appearances from Freddie Mills, Fenella Fielding, a young Nicholas Parsons and Stanley Unwin (a man famed for speaking his own particular brand of gibberish, and someone I cannot stand myself), this instalment in the successful franchise moves along nicely. While still a relatively tame outing, there are a few more risqué moments that would blossom into the material that the series became best known for in later years but it's still all rather naive and harmless for the most part.

With Gerald Thomas directing once again, and the gang all comfortable with their established tics, this is a fun watch for fans of the series if nothing particularly memorable.

See this if you like: Carry On Sergeant, Carry On Nurse, Carry On Constable.
