anthony p Appalling cheap rip off of the worst Carry On film from the 1970s. The Confessions series were the adventures of a character called Timothy Lea played by Robin Askwith. Askwith can be seen on TV screens at the moment still in various TV series. The film also stars the late Tony Booth later to be the father in law of a certain Tony Blair. I did wonder if the crapness of this film inspired some of New Labour's policies in the UK! Lea gets into several soft porn frolics at a holiday camp in Southern England. The camp recently been taken over. Thats about it plot wise! This was the last of four films in the Confessions of Timothy Lea series. Interestingly they were penned on screen by Christopher Wood who wrote the screenplays for James Bond films The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. The poor box office of this film signalled the end of the series! Thank goodness. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The last film in the Confessions series, after just 4 films, the plug was unceremoniously pulled, even though the films were very popular financially, even if the critics couldn't stand them. In this one, the makers switched the suburbian settings that had frequented the first 3 films with something completely different, it has varying results, and the same old sexual shenanigans as before. Timmy Lea (Robin Askwith) and his brother in law Sidney Noggett (Anthony Booth) now have jobs as entertainment officers at Funfrall, a typical British holiday camp, where it's raining all the time, and the staff including homosexual compere Lionel (Lance Percival) and Northern emcee Roughage (Colin Crompton) are hanging around all the time with nothing to do. However, all that changes when a new boss comes to the camp in the form of ex-prison officer Mr. Whitemonk (John Junkin), who wants to turn the camp's fortunes around, and get the holidaymakers in, even though Timmy and Sidney come up with the idea of holding a beauty contest, which they hope will prevent them from getting the sack, but Timmy ends up in more sexual situations yet again from lusty young women. The joke has worn thin by now, probabily just as well. More films were planned, but Columbia Pictures had a change of guard and they scaled back their UK operations, and so the Confessions films went. Shame, they were fun while they lasted, it's a shame this wasn't as good as the first 3 before. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Was supposed to be a raunchier version of Carry On, an entertaining movie anyhow, even if it is a little camp Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
