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!

Contains the best gag in *any* Carry On film...
12 June 2000 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Although this film is not the strongest in the series, it does contain the best gag (in my opinion) of any of the films - a devilish one liner from Councillor Fiddler concerning Fircombe's annual rainfall.

Bresslaw is inspired as the cross dressing Peter/Paula Potter in a time of much lower political sensitivity.

Harmless postcard humour - enjoy it!
