Goofs

When the Doctor talks to Emmanuelle about the Pill, he mentions it only has a 99.99% success rate (i.e., to prevent pregnancy), but she is the unlucky 0.001%. This does not add up to 100%, only to 99.991%. He should have said 0.01%. See more »

Standing up for Emmannuelle
11 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Granted its obvious defects, this porn parody is a far funnier Carry On than many give it credit for.

The Carry On regulars are all in fine form, with Jack Douglas having his finest hour in the series as suave, randy 'Loins' the butler and there's a treasurable farewell performance from dear old Peter Butterworth, which is vintage Carry On. Kenneth Connor is brilliant, as usual, as lecherous chauffeur Leyland, Joan Sims returns to form as the Dickensian sounding Mrs Dangle and Kenneth Williams is as funny as ever as Prevert. Suzanne Danielle is quite superb as Emmannuelle and her sexy, knowing performance is all the more remarkable considering her limited acting experience at the time.

If you can put aside any preconceptions and accept it as a bawdy romp of Britain in the post-pill pre-AIDS era when PC stood only for police constable, Emmannuelle provides plenty of laughs.
