British humour at its best, 4 November 2006
Author: robertasmith from london, england

This film appeals on a lot of levels and is best enjoyed by people who enjoy British humour without political correctness. The best of the carry on films it has slapstick, one liners and some superb acting. Sid James is truly inspired as is Joan Sims.

Peter Butterworth is all that a cynic might want of a preacher and Kenneth Williams and Bernie Bresslaw make the two most unlikely Asians in Cinema history.

As a pastiche on the Korda films etc it is peerless, and who would guess it was shot in Wales!

If you only watch one Carry On film, this is the one to watch.
