Fantastic
8 April 2004 | by (england) – See all my reviews

Carry on Matron is one of the funniest carry on movies i have ever seen in my life. This movie was made in 1972, starring Sid James, Hattie Jacques, Terry Scott, Kenneth Williams, Barbara Windsor. Those actors/actresses are fantastic ones. Thye are very funny and i think they have chosen the perfect roles for the carry on movies they have starred in. Sadly though, now these days, there is only Barbara Windsor still alive that i have mentioned earlier. Sid James, Terry Scott, Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Willams sadly died years ago. Carry on Doctor, Carry on Again Doctor, and Carry on Nurse are another example that is simalar ot Carry on Matron. I give this movie 10 out of 10.
