This fifth instalment of the Carry On... series was more of a series of sketches. Now that the series was a top box office money-spinner for producer Peter Rogers, director Gerald Thomas and screenwriter Norman Hudis, they were inundated with ideas from the public. The answer was to take the best of these ideas and turn them into incidents featuring members of a "Helping Hands" agency. Manager of the agency was Sidney James and his team included Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Kenneth Connor, Bill Owen, Terence Longdon (his last Carry On...), Liz Fraser and Joan Sims. The best of the sketches include Sims getting drunk at a wine tasting and Hawtrey ending up in a boxing match. Some sketches work better than others. The whole team at the "Ideal House Exhibition" works, the whole team cleaning one of their landlord's properties at the end doesn't. But the joy as always is to watch a team of comic geniuses at work.

Essentially a series of comic scenes loosely strung together around the 'Helping Hands' Employment Agency' managed by Sid James and his able assistant Esme Cannon the gentle nature of late 50s comedy films is evident in this fifth entry in the series. I particularly like Stanley Unwin as the incomprehensible landlord and Charles Hawtrey's character whom amusing engages in a mismatched boxing match. For its 2007 DVD release we find Carry On historian Robert Ross joined on the commentary by Liz Fraser and Terence Longdon, the former taking great delight in gently mocking Robert's encyclopaedic knowledge of the franchise. No trailer on offer this time out but at least we've got a four minute stills gallery as a welcome addition to the main feature

Unfortunately, this is not the "ultimate" collection as it's still missing a lot of other films which production rights are owned by a different company. Still, it's still 1 of the 2 boxsets you need for the complete collection, so on the whole a good buy. I don't think I need to go into the films, you either like Carry On films and are buying this for that reason, or if you really don't know what these films are about, then try catch one on tv and check it out first! Hopefully you'll catch one of their very funny ones and catch the bug.....

The criticisms of this film are fair enough,it isn't a great film,although I prefer this early 60s effort to the later smuttier 1970's Carry On films which were desperately trying to keep up with the soft porn Confessions type comedies(and failing miserably). It is episodic and clunky but if you're a fan of the lovely,buxom Liz Fraser then this is a must buy. Liz has many scenes including the famous one of Liz in bra and panties,even better than the one in THE AMOROUS PRAWN which came out at a similar time to Carry On Regardless. Recommended for Liz fans.

By Ian Phillips on 22 May 2006
Format: DVD
Following hot on the trail of Carry On Constable (1959), Peter Rogers and Gerald Thomas came up with a slightly less ambitious comedy with Carry On Regardless. There is really no strong backbone of a plot in this one with it centering around The Helping Hands Agency. The Agency takes on six unemployed men and women and one of the clerks at the labour exchange who decides to join them in a quest for a new, more exciting job. They each find themselves plunged into a very odd, diverse range of assigments, which range from taking a chimp out for the day, trying to stay sober at a wine tasting and demonstrating new pieces of equipment at the Ideal home Exhibition. Of course being a Carry on film, everything they put their hands to turns horribly wrong! As there is just basically a series of sketches, the film overly feels disjointed and there is a feeling of something missing that you can't quite put your finger on. This is, however, nothing to do with the cast who are all on top form and are all clearly having a ball. The cast of regulars include Sid James, Joan Sims, Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Hattie Jaques (yet again in the role of Matron) and the bumbling ecccentric, Kenneth Connor. Certainly some laughs to be had and some sequences are consistently amusing but the film is patchy and at times shows signs of not quite knowing where its going. If you're a big carry on fan then its still worth a look.

I love the film because my father is in it but the credits on the cover are all for the 'Carry On' stars and not like the video cover so I don't rate it as highly as that one.

Partway through watching the Carry Ons for the first time in many years and this one has not aged as well as others. It is still enjoyable to watch but it has a dated look that has has nothing to do with being in black & white - Sergeant and Spying are pretty old now but both still feel quite fresh. The most common criticism (if that's the right word) leveled at Regardless is that it is a series of standalone sequences held together loosely by the characters being dispatched to jobs by the Helping Hands agency - but that doesn't bother me as some of those sequences are really funny - I won't spoil them by running through them. I do remember lapping up the slapstick in this film as a kid and perhaps my tickle-bone has moved sideways since then but it's not one to keep going back to. It will stay in the collection as the Carry Ons add up to more than individual films.
