Trivia

Owing to the stronger subject matter this was the only Carry On to receive a 'AA' (now '15') cinema certificate, preventing audiences of under 14 from seeing the film. All other Carry On films have been certificated as suitable for all ages, although the 'A' certificate did require children to be accompanied by an adult. See more »

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 »

RIP Carry On films 1958 - 1978
8 September 2002 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

One would expect this, the last in the long line of Carry On films, to be a load of old rubbish. And while it is perhaps not Carry On heaven it is still worth a look.

It is ironic being the last in the series, that after the utterly appalling Carry on England, Emmannuelle is actually a slightly better film. Kenneth Williams is in fine nostril-flaring form, Kenneth Connor is a delight as the sleazy chauffeur and stunning Suzanne Danielle a joy to behold in her body hugging outfits. Even the snazzy 70s theme song, "Love Crazy" is quite catchy!

However, we are now at the end of the line for this series of comedy favourites and it is sad to see a now bloated Joan Sims doing not very much, an ancient Peter Butterworth doing not very much and underused Jack Douglas not falling over and making silly noises.

Also long, long gone is the series' subtle use of innuendo and double entendre. As with Carry on England, we are now subjected to nude bottoms and breasts to raise a titter among the audience. And the nose cone gag on the Concorde has to be seen to be believed!

Better than its predecessor and worth an occasional viewing but by no means one of the best. A very, very different film to Sergeant which launched the series a staggering 20 years before.
