Because of two shots of nudity this was first released in England as a "AA" certificate (Suitable for those aged 14 and older) uncut on 29th June, 1976, to keep up with the then "Confessions..." films. The "AA" certificate proved "difficult to accommodate at the Box Office" as this "AA" award, and its nudity, was out of character with previous Carry On films and thus resubmitted to the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) in December 1976 with cuts. On 11th January, 1977 it was re-classified, and re-released, as an "A" certificate (Those aged 5 and older admitted, but parents advised that they may not wish children under 14 to watch the film).

Rubbish. Along with Carry on Emmanuelle this is the worst of the series. I've got a lot of time for these films, but this was inexcusable. By this time (1976) the joke was no longer funny and the juice had run dry, as Sid James might have put it.
Only two of the Carry On regulars are in this and even they look bored. The jokes are staid and formulaic, delivered with the speed and panache of a postman. The budget for the film appeared to be £2.50.
Even Windsor Davies' Sergeant's bellowing couldn't save this.
