Such wedded bliss
3 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Carry On Loving has both Sidney James and Hattie Jacques running a marital matchmaking agency which is a total fraud, but don't say they're not committed to their clients. In fact James personally 'vets' each one of the female clients himself to Hattie's dismay. In fact they're not really married, but she'd like to be married to someone.

Hard to describe the plot of this film, but it's a series of gags around the prospective couples some of whom change partners before the film is over. Even Jacques starts eying client Kenneth Williams who's actually been ordered by his employer to get married. Why you have to see the film for.

Best of course is Sidney James trying to elude private detective Charles Hawtrey who Jacques has hired to follow James on his 'vetting' missions. He completely bamboozles Hawtrey who is his usual officious self.

In the end the whole cast essentially gets together and the finale is right out of Mack Sennett. Funny funny film from the Carry On crew.
