A forest ranger is haunted by the disappearance of his four-year-old daughter, and the subsequent breakup of his marriage. He discovers his ex-wife Ana is pregnant to the policeman in charge of his missing daughter's case.
Professors Vrooshka and Crump decide to visit an archaeological site to study the artifacts there. Lo and behold, it's right next to a caravan site where all manner of people are staying. With a randy Major owning the site, a snobbish mother, and the two professors' constant innuendos, the film ends with a sinking caravan site and a striptease performance as a replacement for the cabaret night.

I love this film. Although I love most of the Carry-ons, this one, although 'Sid-less', has one of the best written scripts, and some of the best jokes of any of them. This is definitely one of my favourites.
Elke Sommer is fantastic in her major role, as has a fantastic scene with Bernard Bresslaw. She tells him 'I'm keeping a dirty caravan... I have birds in my caravan - you want to come see?". Bernard replies "Erm..not just now thanks". She replies "I'm going around camp looking for scrubbers." Classic stuff.
There are many little sub-plots throughout, which more than makes up for perhaps, a lack of major storyline.
Joan Sim's escaping 'swearing' Minah bird, the "dirty caravan" scene, the Joan Sims/Peter Butterworth man and wife scene, Windsor Davis/Jack Douglas chatting up the girls, and finally, the stripper scene at the end leading to everyone losing the seat of their clothes.
A really great and enjoyable film. Not taxing, or intelligent in any way, but full of laughs, a bit saucy, and a film you can watch over and over again.
