It has been a quarter-century since I saw this movie, which was making a far-east tour of military bases in the early 70's (1974?), and I thought then (and still think so now) that it was one of the funniest movies I had ever had the pleasure of seeing. Although it was probably not as well made as some movies, it made up for that in hilarious content. I can still remember how much I laughed and enjoyed myself. Don't know if you can (or will) use these comments, but I've been looking for this picture ever since I first saw it, and just wish I could find it again. On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the best), I would rate this film a 9 or 9.5.
A bit too risqué to be a Carry On film, despite the presence of the great Joan Sims and Barbara Windsor, this is a farce starring Leslie Phillips as Bodley, who is buying a fur coat for his mistress Janie (the electric blue eyed Julie Ege). Janie is married and her husband comes to the furrier and there begins this true comic farce of double entendres, clothes thrown out the window and hiding in the store room. This film is fast paced, and everyone here has a flair for comedy, including Ray Cooney, who also co-wrote and co-directed this film. Its truly a film of its time, a sex comedy that never reaches porn. Its just fun to watch. Also included is the always welcome Moira Lister as Bodley's wife. A bit improbable as to the story itself, but who cares? If you like sex comedies, this is a good choice. If you want your Carry On film to take one more step forward, here it is. Its fun.
When it comes to stripping beautiful young women down to their underwear for the most gratuitous of reasons, no one can outdo the English. The plot, such as it is, revolves around Leslie Phillips conniving attempts to get Janie McMichael into bed. His plans inevitably go astray, leading to half-naked girls hiding in the closet, jealous husbands raging through the office, and at three of the female cast least losing their clothes in this unmistakably British comedy of errors. Probably the best of Leslie Phillips' seventies bedroom farces, which included "Spanish Fly," "Don't Just lie there, Say Something," "Doctor in Trouble", and the infamous "Not Now Comrade".
