Storyline

Sid and Bernie keep having their amorous intentions snubbed by their girlfriends Joan and Anthea. The boys suggest a camping holiday, secretly intending to take them to a nudist camp. Of course they end up in the wrong place, and meet up with the weirdest bunch of campers you can imagine! Coach loads of sex-starved schoolgirls and bands of hippies all add to the laughs. Written by Simon N. McIntosh-Smith <Simon.N.Smith@cs.cf.ac.uk>

Alternate Versions

As with many Carry On films the BBFC required cuts for an 'A' (PG) certificate. Although the double entendres during the tent scene were eventually allowed the word 'erection' was removed, as was an entire scene where Peter leaves the girl's tent. Later releases feature the same edited print. See more »

Makes you proud to be British!
12 June 1999 | by Jonno-BSee all my reviews

This film definitely has to be a strong contender for the title of best "Carry On" film ever. The whole film says "Carry On" from the characters and location to the plays on words (ie the finishing school for girls entitled "Chayste Place") and the inevitable double entendres. The fact that the film was shot on the back lot of Pinewood Studios, and not in a campsite in Devon, is really not important, as the atmosphere is captured marvellously. This is also another example of how it would be nearly impossible in real life to have such a collection of people in one place at one time. Including an old lecher, a hen-pecked husband, a camp camper and a party of girls from a finishing school. I would recommend this film to anyone who has an interest in comedy, British Cinema, or if you just feel like a good laugh.
