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>

Trivia

The Rank Organisation were concerned over the film's potential budget. Naturally, with the fields and orchards in and around Pinewood Studios utilised for most of the location work, it was not a patch on the budget for the costume romp Carry On... Up the Khyber (1968). However, Peter Rogers had to justify the escalating production cost since Carry on Doctor (1968) the previous year. A week longer on the shooting schedule and the need for more artistes were amongst his reasons in a letter dated 30th September 1968. Moreover he maintained that Rank "have five pictures...for a good deal less than one million pounds." See more »

My brief review of the film
25 June 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

One of the most popular films in series, it is broad and amusing, and accompanied by quite a good score this time, yet it is only intermittently very funny. The sexual humour is at times rather amusing, and Kenneth Williams sparkles in his role, but arguably it is sillier than the par of Carry On films, with the last ten minutes or so of the film being really utter nonsense. In addition, having too many main characters means that they do not get a chance to be developed very well. But overall, it is quite an enjoyable experience nonetheless, with a number of very entertaining, even if not hilarious, scenes.
