A suited and booted chap with a flyaway mop of copper hair can be seen walking down the street when Bernie first pulls up outside the Spanners' house. Soon after, the same man can be seen across the road from the parked motorbike. A few seconds later, there he is again, back walking down the street behind Vic. See more »

brilliantly funny
11 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love all the carry on films except maybe the last few (England was dire) but this along with 'Screaming' is my favourite. I could and have watched it dozens of times and it still makes me laugh. All the cast are clearly having a laugh and it's nice to see Kenneth Cope not playing Marty Hopkirk (Randall And Hopkirk Deceased - my all time favourite TV show). Sid James is ,well, Sid James but what's wrong with that?, Bernard Bresslaw hilarious and Jacki Piper... well.. forget Barbara Windsor, she was never a looker, Jacki Piper and Angela Douglas (not in this one) were always better looking. The whole concept of making a film in a toilet factory is inspired, has there been another??? The situations at the factory, at Brighton and especially at Sids house with the budgie (ta daddy!, ta daddy!, TA!!!)are all laugh out loud funny. No matter what mood you're in, bung this on and have a bloody good laugh. Brilliant film.
