Superb schoolboy toilet humour!
4 January 2002 | by (Hampshire, England.) – See all my reviews



This is my favourite "Carry On" film.

It has a gag per minute. Most of the gags are "telegraphed" and predictable but for me this makes them so much funnier.

The film is about a toilet making factory owned by WC Boggs (note to US readers - a toilet in England is called a "bog"). 90% of the gags are related one way or another to toilets or biological functions.

If you like slapstick and toilet humour then you will love this film.

If you are pretentious and claim only to like "serious" humour then take that corn-cob out of your Khyber and watch this film anyway.

Also recommended: "Carry on Abroad"; "Carry on Matron"; "Holiday on the Buses", and "Mutiny on the Buses".
