Goofs

In W.C.Boggs' office, when Charles Coote has just designed a toilet, Sid decides to test it and sits down on it and reads a Racing paper. Charles says, "It was hardly designed as a reading room." In the next shot he can be seen saying the word "room" again but with no sound. See more »

Carry On team go political and ostracise their fans?
17 September 2009 | by SpikeopathSee all my reviews

I like this entry in the series, I really do. Many others however find it a dud and feel that it should be flushed down one of the toilets that feature at W.C. Boggs' factory in the film. Blending the obvious toilet gags with a tale about unionised shop floors, the Carry On team have actually crafted one of the franchise's less mucky pictures. Sid James, so long the bastion of sexually driven lechery in Carry On folklore, has a very restrained role in this one, and this to me somewhat explains to an extent why "Convenience" is often shunned by the series fans.

Elsewhere it's the subplots away from the factory that put the smile on my face. Charles Hawtrey is indulging in strip poker with shop steward, Vic Spanner's, mother!. While James' Sid Plummer is getting horse racing winners from his budgie,! all under the watchful eye of his apparently scatty wife Beattie {a terrific Hattie Jacques}. Sexy eye candy for us blokes comes in the form of Jacki Piper, and the film finale on the Brighton seaside is drunken buffoonery to at least raise a giggle or two. Not the best Carry On by a long shot predicted by Sid's budgie, but certainly not one of the worst either. 6.5/10
