      Audience Member One phrase: Never again Just watch the previous, better, entries in the franchise. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review bill t The series is never ending, this doesnt quite have a plot until the very end (!!). just a lot of hooligans in a coed army camp and their nincapoop officer. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Now, I love the Carry On films, but this is, by far, my least favourite. The whole film feels really awkward as there's lots of painfully drawn out dialogue with no punchlines, and equally painfully drawn out scenes that just feel like time-fillers. The film doesn't really go anywhere and the younger performers seem a little static and unable to mould into the traditional Carry On spirit, despite their best efforts. Kenneth Connor and Windsor Davis do their best but poor Joan Sims is completely wasted with only a handful of lines. The performances from the likes of Judy Geeson and some of the other younger performers feel uncomfortably forced. Just didn't make me laugh and didn't feel like a true Carry On. Very flat throughout and just pathetic. A terrible waste and made me long for the classic era of the Carry On's. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Without most of the regular 'Carry On' cast, one would expect this offering to be a total turkey. Whilst this isn't the best in the series, it certainly isn't the worst, with a number of amusing moments and some pleasing performances. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member And so it came to this, the 28th Carry On film, and with Sid James dead, writer Talbot Rothwell ill and Kenneth Williams either busy/not interested. Producer Peter Rogers and director Gerald Thomas decided to, pardon the pun, carry on and get some new faces and fresh blood into the series to perk things up a bit, it didn't work and it shows in this half-baked effort, which goes for wordplay and repeated gags rather than out and out smut. Set in an experimental RAF camp which mixes both sexes together, it has Captain S Melly (Kenneth Connor) taking over from Captain Bull (David Lodge) in running this ramshackle base, where there's alot of randy antics between both men and women troops in the base, which is attended to by Sergeant Major "Tiger" Bloomer (Windsor Davies). Melly is introduced to Bombadier Ready (Jack Douglas), Sergeant Tilly Willing (Judy Geeson) and Sergeant Len Able (Patrick Mower), as well as Private Jennifer Ffoukes-Sharp (Joan Sims) and Gunner Shorthouse (Melvyn Hayes). They are hopeless, but Melly and Bloomer are determined to show that this troop are ready for action when the enemy strikes, by any means necessary. It should have been a good film, but it's let down by a half-hearted script, clumsy comedy routines and a plodding story. Something like this screams to be set on a battlefield or in the skies. A wasted opportunity all round. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member It was an ok film but not the best carry on film, it doesn't star my two favourite carry on stars Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtrey, it starred Patrick Mower (Emmerdale's Rodney), Joan Sims, Peter Jones and Kenneth Connor Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews
