Review

Our Score
"What a load of ballcocks!" Among the weakest of the Carry Ons, this is toilet humour in every sense of the phrase. Plumbing the depths of his imagination, screenwriter Talbot Rothwell throws up a spoof on "everybody out" trade unionism that is hardly flush with originality. To relieve the comic drought, he packs bosses and workers alike into a charabanc for a works outing that has all the appearance of a desperate time-filler. Sid James and Hattie Jacques have the best scenes with their racing-tipster budgie, but the remaining regulars deserve better than being asked to wade knee-deep in mediocrity.

Summary

Production at toilet manufacturers WC Boggs is brought to a halt when an over-eager trade union representative calls a strike. However, worker unrest is quickly quelled by a jolly trip to the seaside. Comedy, starring Sid James, Kenneth Cope, Hattie Jacques, Joan Sims, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey and Bernard Bresslaw.
