I have always liked/loved the Carry on movies, and this is no exception. I do agree that the story is thin, it is, but the humour and cast elevate it. The humour is very bawdy but it never ceases to be hilarious, whether in the script or the innuendos. The film looks pretty good too, the music is quirky, the direction is solid and the film goes along at a good pace. The cast are great as per usual, it was wonderful to see all of those I love. Sidney James, who was genuinely bedridden for much of the film is good still, while Kenneth Williams is very funny as the sneering consultant. Jim Dale is funny and charming as the clumsy Dr Kilmore and Frankie Howerd makes for an impressive series debut. But Charles Hawtrey steals the show as he experiences the pangs of a "sympathetic" pregnancy. Overall, a fun entry in the series. 8/10 Bethany Cox
