This the best carry on ever!
18 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This carry on is a great carry on!. The actors are great. Most of the gang are here except Charles Hawtrey who got the boot after Abroad. Patsy Rowland's is underused which is a great shame as is Bill Maynard they have both got good talent. Sid Jame's is just as good as ever in his final carry on. Barbara Windsor is great as Harriet, as is Hatttie Jacques.Jack Douglas and Kenneth William's are great this film is the last true carry on film behind wasn't the same. This was good clean fun the last 3 England Behind and Emmanuelle resort to nudity to get laughs this had the talent the actors and the script its go the lot. This one and Cleo are the best Historical ones!. After this they where never the same!..
