Storyline

Sid and Bernie keep having their amorous intentions snubbed by their girlfriends Joan and Anthea. The boys suggest a camping holiday, secretly intending to take them to a nudist camp. Of course they end up in the wrong place, and meet up with the weirdest bunch of campers you can imagine! Coach loads of sex-starved schoolgirls and bands of hippies all add to the laughs. Written by Simon N. McIntosh-Smith <Simon.N.Smith@cs.cf.ac.uk>

The best of British comedies!
28 April 2005 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This film is as British as fish and chips and beer. It is also one of my personal favourites. A real treat from beginning to end. This film should be viewed at least once by everyone, even if only for the legendary sequence of Barbara Windsor doing exercises! Sid James is the randy bloke who, along with his gormless mate Bernard Bresslaw, hit on the idea of taking repressed girlfriends Joan Sims and Dilys Laye to a nudist colony to loosen them up, but end up at an normal family campsite.

Kenneth Williams is the snooty headmaster of a girls' boarding school who, with matron Hattie Jacques, hits on the idea of getting their oversexed pupils, including a particularly oversexed Barbara Windsor, back to nature.

The loner of the group is Charles Hawtrey, first discovered in compromising position in a tent with an attractive salesgirl. He finds refuge in the company of henpecked Terry Scott and his spirited wife Betty Marsden but ends up with the St Trinian's like schoolgirls!

A real treat and a must for Carry On fans!
