PG Certificate


Our Score
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.


Two men lure their unsuspecting girlfriends to a nudist camp, with hopes of having a wild old time - but the joke is on the men when it turns out they have ended up at a traditional family campsite. Bawdy comedy, starring Sid James, Bernard Bresslaw, Kenneth Williams, Joan Sims and Barbara Windsor.
