Fun if a bit tired
2 September 2018 | by RrrobertSee all my reviews

Fun Carry On with a good story and most of the team represented, and the last one that actually feels like a real Carry On.

The standout performance is actually from recent addition Jack Douglas, now upgraded to a main role. His scenes with Kenneth Williams are the funniest part of the film for me.

It must be said the cast and some of the situations do look a bit tired by now, and some characters and events are repeats from earlier films, but it is still entertaining.
