This is the best Carry On ever made, without a doubt. People often give that title to Up the Khyber. I feel that film was too dignified and refined to be a true Carry On. Abroad is Carry On at its very best, smutty, saucy, camp and proud of it. When we're treated to a resort called ElsBels you know youre in for a treat. The script is a gem from start to end, all the regular cast are present and on top form, including the great Charles Hawtrey, who, despite being evidently drunk, is easily the best attraction. Ironically, it was to be his last Carry On, but he is fantastic. From the second he cries, 'Oh, hello!' he provides many belly laughs. He should have had top billing, up until this fim he was the longest serving member of cast, appearing in all but one of the films. The rest of the cast are great as well, and there are some new young faces to keep the sex appeal up. As with all the best Carry Ons, this film has moments of pathos, although brief, to compliment the torrent of innuendo. At the end of the film, everyone finds love, (even Charlie, though with the booze!) THe cast are having the time of their lives, particularly during the end of film lock in, something not true of later films. This is the last great Carry On, and they would soon nosedive. It is to be cherished.
