Product Description

Four films from the popular 1970s 'Confessions...' sex comedy series, following the saucy antics of the hapless Timothy Lea (Robin Askwith). In 'Confessions of a Window Cleaner' (1974) accident-prone Tim finds himself very much in demand with his female customers when he begins work as a window cleaner. In 'Confessions of a Driving Instructor' (1976) Tim finds himself working for a driving instruction company, although he soon begins to demonstrate more interest in the female customers than in teaching them to drive. In 'Confessions from a Holiday Camp' (1977) Tim takes on a job as an entertainment officer at a holiday camp, and soon finds himself organising a beauty pageant for the female holidaymakers. Finally, in 'Confessions of a Pop Performer' (1975) the lure of groupies convinces Tim to start managing a hopeless rock band, and before he knows it the band are playing at the Royal Variety show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look, it's not really that bad... 21 Jan 2006
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER

If you were a teenage boy in the UK during the early 70's - as I was myself - then this box set will bring back memories of a type of girl now extinct both on TV and in the movies. Of course it lacks the wit and sophistication of Benny Hill but then you cannot have everything.
cannot be faulted on price. The transfers to DVD are clear, sharp and detailed. There are no extra's but then if there was I feel it would detract from the tackiness of the movies.
No, file this under 'Happy Days' and look kindly on the follies of your youth...

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the box. 4 July 2006
By I. R. Kerr TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Let's be honest these were a product of their times.
Robin Askwith WAS Timmy Lea, a cheeky chap with an eye for the birds, it has to be seen in the light of the 1970's when sex was seen as a bit of a larf.
The movies are self explanatory, Timmy starts a new job with his brother-in-law Sid Noggett, chaos ensues and women start to lose their clothing as Timmy gets another notch on his bedpost. It is harmless knockabout stuff full of knock-knock style jokes that have long past their time.
They are the cinema equivalent of naughty sea-side postcards.
Watch Jill Gascoine, Linda Bellingham, and many others who did not quite reach household fame disrobe in a series of nudge-nudge,wink-wink episodes.
It's not PC these days to like these movies. I saw them when they were first released and appreciate them better for that.
They deserve a new audience as both a historic movie novelty and as good fun.
Warning - not to be watched by anyone who thinks My Family is risque.

5.0 out of 5 stars They donot make them like this anymore 13 May 2006
By Mr. P. J. R. LEWIS TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is classic comedy at its very best with Robin Asquith and Anthony Booth(Tony Blairs uncle)in all kinds of adult Carry On humour.

Prabably the best is Window cleaner but Driving Instructor is really entertaining aswell.

With political correctness gone mad we shall never see the likes of this again,it was a very seventies thing with other series such as Love Thy Neighbour which were huge hits but wouldnot be allowed today.

For those who were too young to remember these films they follow the exploits of Asquith with his bawdy conquests of all the glamourous housewifes in the neighbourhood.Think of an adult version of the Carry on series an you will have the basic idea.

At just under five pounds a disc this is superb value and for some lite entertainment you cannot beat a bit of TIMOTHY LEA.

To think that these films when they first appeard in the cinema were bigger than James Bond in popularity shows how good they were and still are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Phwooarr..nice bit of social history 7 Nov 2008
By A. Miles VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
In their time these movies were huge at the UK box office. Cheaply made, astonishingly unerotic and almost painfully unfunny, It really shows up how grim the early 70s must have been if people flocked to the cinemas to seek light relief in this dreck.

Anyway, you know the drill. Personable simpleton Timothy Lea, sporting a tasty selection of crushed velvet loon pants and enormously-collared slimfit nylon shirts, gets a new job with his brother in law Sid which inevitably leads to some hilarious swanee-whistle style slapstick and emcounters with sexy young ladies, usually at the same time.

From a modern viewpoint, the films work on several levels. One can revel in their sheer awfulness, of course, but they also serve as invaluable social documents of their time: Timmy and Sid live in a grim, non-swinging London still studded with bombsites and with hardly a car on the roads, returning at night to tiny, overcrowded homes full of pre-war furniture. This was a time when consumerism, foreign travel and ideas about sophistication and taste had yet to reach the mass of normal Britons, and their lives seem very poor and dowdy from todays perspective. For instance, imagine a time when being a driving instructor was considered a glamourous, enviable job..

Anyway, either as retro ironic treat or piece of film/social history, you can't go wrong at 12 quid for 6 hours of saucy 70s fun. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated viewing 8 May 2013

Titilating and nostalgic from a bygone time in British movies. One step further from the Carry On series but a giggle all the same.

Its the combination of different Professions with what else but Sex, most certainly a sure recipe for a Fun evening indoors with lots of laughs! Old school but guaranteed a laugh, worth owning a copy as you will end up watching it more than once! Good Luck and Enjoy!
