Carry On Loving
19 March 2003 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

"Carry On Loving" was repeated on television on the most appropriate day - St. Valentine's Day. I had never seen this addition to the series before and was looking forward to seeing it as it was on very late on a Friday night. It was standard "Carry On" fare, but a little disappointing.

A group of "lonely hearts" try their luck at the Wedded Bliss Computer Dating Agency - run by the ever-enterprising Sid James and his battleaxe wife Hattie Jacques. The film suffers from loss of the usual humour and the stalwarts lose their importance due to the woefully inadequate screen time spent on the "happy couples" - Terry Scott and Imogen Hassall and Richard O' Callaghan and Jacki Piper.

There are fine performances from everyone including Charles Hawtrey as an inept private detective with very limited importance, Joan Sims as Sid's bit-on-the-side, Kenneth Williams as an UNMARRIED marriage guidance councillor and Bernard Bresslaw as the manic pro-wrestler Gripper Burke, not forgetting some delightful cameos from Peter Butterworth, Patsy Rowlands, Bill Maynard, Julian Holloway, Joan Hickson and Bill Pertwee.

Overall, a good "Carry On" film, but not a great one. If you have never seen a "Carry On" film before, try watching something earlier such as "Carry On Cowboy" or "Carry On Up the Khyber" etc, then watch this, but be warned, Charles Hawtrey, Bernard Bresslaw and Peter Butterworth are sadly under-used.

7 out of 10.
