Ultimate "Belly Laughs" from yesteryear
15 June 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

An excellent, "clean" film depiticing the best of British humour. Only saw it once (30 years ago) but it lives on. Would recommend it to all. How a simple "weekend away" can result in so much mayhem (unintentional of course) and result in absolute enjoyment for the viewer. No wonder so many "Carry On" movies followed.
