Yes, this is the one in which Babs (Barbara Windsor) bursts out all over. The 17th outing is one of the liveliest Carry Ons, with the cast making light of the fact that they were shooting in freezing temperatures in fields that were so muddy they were sprayed green to give the impression of high summer. Yet again, the big slapstick finale is something of a disappointment after all the wonderful double entendre incidents, but there is the compensation of Sid James as an unlikely hippy, while Peter Butterworth has his finest hour as the miserly site owner.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring Sidney James, Kenneth Williams and Joan Sims. When Sid Boggle and Bernie Lugg decide to take their girlfriends on a holiday to Paradise Camp, they think they're off to a nudist colony - but they couldn't be more wrong.
