Quotes

Connie Philpotts: Hello, Mrs. Dukes, I thought you were going to the cinema.
Mrs. Dukes: I did, but I had to leave. A young man sat next to me and started to make improper suggestions.
Connie Philpotts: Again? Really, you should complain to the manager.
Mrs. Dukes: I can't - he's after me too, you see!
Connie Philpotts: Well, Mrs. Dukes, perhaps you shouldn't make yourself look quite so attractive.
Mrs. Dukes: Oh it's not that, I can't help it. I give out waves, you know.
Connie Philpotts: Really?
Mrs. Dukes: Yes, my late husband used to call it OOMPH!

Uneven, but has its moments
28 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Carry On series does have worse entries such as England, Emanuelle and Columbus, but with Screaming, Cleo and Up the Khyber the series has better too. Carry on Girls doesn't fit in either best or worst categories, instead it is content with a spot in the low-ish middle category. While the costumes and sets are good, the editing isn't particularly, some scenes look as though they have been edited on a bacon slicer. The story is also rather unfocused with an attempt to combine gentle social satire and smut and sauciness, and it keeps jumping to and fro with uneven results. Also I did miss Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtrey. However, the direction isn't too bad, neither is the music, while Talbot Rothwell's script is fluid and has some good moments that make up for the uneven focus in story. And the cast do give it their all, Sid James and June Witfield are a lively pair of adversaries and Kenneth Connor, Joan Sims and Patsy Rowlands are splendid as well. Overall, a very uneven film but not one without its moments. 6/10 Bethany Cox
