Professors Vooshka and Crump decide to visit an archaeological site to study the artifacts there. Lo and behold, it's right next to a caravan site where all manner of people are staying. With a randy Major owning the site, a snobbish mother, and the two professors' constant innuendos, the film ends with a sinking caravan site and a striptease performance as a replacement for the cabaret night.Written by

As with many Carry On films the BBFC required cuts for an 'A' (PG certificate). One of these was to shots of topless nudity during the film wrongly shown by Professor Crump in the opening lecture scene. The producers successfully appealed to censor Stephen Murphy and the cuts were rescinded, though a cut was made to brief shots of Linda Upmore's jiggling breasts when Crump notices her through a caravan window. Later releases feature the same print. See more »
This is my first "Carry On"-film and I really and unexpectedly enjoyed this. I mostly started watching this for completism, to have at least seen one movie from the famous franchise. And then I really enjoyed it and watched it to the end. Why? The plot is crap, basically it's a bunch of diverse characters getting together on an English campground in march, which looks about as jolly as an toxic waste site in winter, and then getting up to some horribly contrived antics.
Still, like wine, old jokes can still be good. What makes this movie so enjoyable are the many excellent actors with their impeccable delivery. And the movie always stays slightly naughty and mischievous without ever becoming sleazy.
