Quotes

Gladstone Screwer: You don't have to move out, you know. It's a big bed.
Matron: Well as I told you earlier today, I'm not your sort of woman.
Gladstone Screwer: I don't mean anything nasty. I'll marry you first.
Matron: Marry me? Are you mad? Marry me in the middle of the night?
Gladstone Screwer: Where I come from it's a very simple ceremony.
[He produced a knife. Matron screams]
Gladstone Screwer: It's all right, nothing to worry about. We just make a quick cut in each other's left hand, put them together, say "We are one" and it's all legal.
Matron: Oh... I see... sort of instant wedlock?
Gladstone Screwer: ...

Third time, not so lucky.
20 July 2013 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

With the Carry On gang returning to the medical arena for a third time, it was almost inevitable that the laughs would feel more strained. The script is certainly weaker, with more obvious gags and an over-reliance on puerile slapstick and pratfalls, but the real problem here as far as I am concerned is with the casting, the performers seemingly far less comfortable in their roles this time around.

Jim Dale, who played such a likable physician in Carry On Doctor, struggles as a womanising doctor who takes advantage of others for profit; Charles Hawtrey, so believable as a highly strung patient, is unconvincing as senior house surgeon Doctor Ernest Stoppidge; Babs Windsor is there simply to flash some flesh; and Sid James is wasted as tropical island doctor Gladstone Screwer, a role that feels like an extended cameo.

Meanwhile, Wilfrid Brambell appears in a pointless scene where he gropes a nurse, 70s sexpot Valerie Leon briefly flaunts her cleavage, and Peter Butterworth is demoted to the part of 'Shuffling Patient'. Worst of all, there's no Frankie Howerd or Bernard Bresslaw!

6/10, which is a poor rating from such an avid Carry On fan.
