Alternate Versions

Despite the stronger subject matter the UK cinema version suffered only mild BBFC cuts with the removal of the dialogue lines "You can't do much with your little finger" (from an exchange between Sid and Terry) and "You know, putting it in, the meat" (which lost the last two words) from Jenny's description of her job as a sausage packer to Sally. Video and DVD versions feature the same print and the cuts may no longer survive. See more »

Lowbrow, but fun
28 June 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

CARRY ON LOVING is a surprisingly enjoyable Carry On movie given that the entire script is given over to sexual innuendos and the lowbrow. Sure, there are a few slapstick moments dotted here and there through the film, but this is noticeably more sexualised than all of the other Carry Ons made previously.

The film has a contemporary setting, with Sid James and Hattie Jacques the owners of a wedding agency who aim to set up various hopefuls in wedded bliss. There are shades of CARRY ON REGARDLESS here with the agency setting, but this is very much a film of its era and the 1970s look and feel is priceless. Cast-wise, James and Jacques are solid and enjoyable, but it's the minor players who really shine in this one.

I'm not usually a fan of Terry Scott but his set piece scene in Joan Hickson's house is the highlight here. Imogen Hassall's transformation from prim and proper to alluring sex-pot is highly memorable too - what an incredible-looking actress! Charles Hawtrey bags the second funniest moment with his incident in the gents. Peter Butterworth is limited to a one-scene cameo but makes the very best of it, while Bernard Bresslaw has a wonderful larger-than-life role as a wrestler. It's just a shame that Kenneth Williams had little to do and that Richard O'Callaghan is such a poor replacement for Jim Dale; but then you can't win 'em all.
