Trivia

The first "Carry On" film to lose money at the box-office and only broke even in 1976 after television deals and distribution rights and had been sold. Its failure at the box- office was largely down to the fact it was clearly an anti - union film. This was a curious miscalculation by the makers as they knew most of their audience were working class people who would have largely been union supporters/members. See more »

Quotes

Chloe Moore: Fred do you really think I would I'd want to play around with anyone else about when I got a smashing bloke like you to play around with?
Fred Moore: I know women, when there's no prime beef handy they'll do with any old scrag end.
Chloe Moore: Well then you want to make sure there's plenty of prime beef when they need it, don't you?

Alternate Versions

The original cinema version was cut by the BBFC to remove cruder dialogue lines including "All the time it's prick, prick, prick" (followed by "so the girls say"), "I hope the other arm is doing as well", and "Something important has come up"(followed by "Won't it keep"). The latter line has been restored to video/DVD releases though other cuts may no longer survive. See more »

brilliantly funny
11 January 2006 | by pbbuffyhugsSee all my reviews

I love all the carry on films except maybe the last few (England was dire) but this along with 'Screaming' is my favourite. I could and have watched it dozens of times and it still makes me laugh. All the cast are clearly having a laugh and it's nice to see Kenneth Cope not playing Marty Hopkirk (Randall And Hopkirk Deceased - my all time favourite TV show). Sid James is ,well, Sid James but what's wrong with that?, Bernard Bresslaw hilarious and Jacki Piper... well.. forget Barbara Windsor, she was never a looker, Jacki Piper and Angela Douglas (not in this one) were always better looking. The whole concept of making a film in a toilet factory is inspired, has there been another??? The situations at the factory, at Brighton and especially at Sids house with the budgie (ta daddy!, ta daddy!, TA!!!)are all laugh out loud funny. No matter what mood you're in, bung this on and have a bloody good laugh. Brilliant film.
