The Carry On gang get pulses racing yet again.
30 September 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Also known as: the Carry On movie featuring the second-most popular clip to be reused over and over again in any feature looking at the franchise (this time it's Jim Dale zapping himself around and the later sequence of him running into a hospital trolley and lying prone on it while it speeds down a set of stairs).

Gerald Thomas directs again, and Talbot Rothwell writes (I know, I know, it goes without saying but I keep saying anyway), as the Carry On crew return to the hospital setting that has seen them mine some comedy gold before.

Jim Dale is the amusingly named, and accident-prone, Doctor Nookey while Kenneth Williams is the boss who ends up sending him away to a remote island hospital after one escapade too many. While there, the doctor meets Gladstone Screwer (Sid James) and finds a local serum that may just be his ticket home.

Consistently amusing from start to finish (I break into a big grin every single time I see Jim Dale's drunken dance routine), this remains one of the better Carry On movies thanks to it's mix of the risqué with the romantic core (Barbara Windsor may prompt a lot of leering during her first, memorable appearance but Dale does properly fall for her, even if he doesn't realise it for some time).

Most of the familiar faces are here: Peter Butterworth, Charles Hawtrey, Hattie Jacques, Joan Sims, etc and it's always nice to see the beautiful Valerie Leon appearing in a small role.

We also get the usual cross-dressing shenanigans, some great one-liners, the first outing for Patsy Rowlands as one of the group, Sid laughing his laugh and a whole host of other little delights, making it a whole load of fun for fans and, possibly, newcomers too.
