Not the best, but still fun
27 February 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I do like the Carry on movies, and I have to say I did enjoy Carry on Up the Jungle. It is not their best, but it is far from their worst either. One or two of the story lines are disjointed and the film is too short I think. But a lot compensates, especially the very funny and snappy one liners, and also the splendid sets, quirky music, skilled direction and fun performances. When it comes to the performances, the regulars are great and are always amusing especially Sid James, Charles Hawtrey and Joan Sims(Sims getting a snake up her dress is one of the film's highlights). But for me, Frankie Howerd steals the show in a fussy, campy but very enjoyable performance. The mating ritual was wonderful as well. All in all, not the best Carry on but a fun one. 8/10 Bethany Cox
