4.0 out of 5 stars Look, it's not really that bad...
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Comedy!
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!

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...

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.

This review is from: Confessions (Confessions of a Window Cleaner / Confessions of a Driving Instructor / Confessions from a Holiday Camp / Confessions of a Pop Performer) [DVD] (DVD)
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

This review is from: Confessions (Confessions of a Window Cleaner / Confessions of a Driving Instructor / Confessions from a Holiday Camp / Confessions of a Pop Performer) [DVD] (DVD)
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.

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

Well packaged and swift receipt. Didn't realize how dated humour can become.
Nice to see the old cars and how our streets used to be. The supplier of the goods gave a first class service.

5.0 out of 5 stars confessions of / review, 31 Mar 2009
This review is from: Confessions (Confessions of a Window Cleaner / Confessions of a Driving Instructor / Confessions from a Holiday Camp / Confessions of a Pop Performer) [DVD] (DVD)
I was delighted to get the four Confessions Of films in one box set. Besides that the price was really good too. The set came with complimentary postcards, similar to the saucy seaside type, of each films promo. The delivery was also fast. All in all I was very pleased with my purchase and would highly commend the seller. The product itself is suitable for anyone who enjoyed the saucy fun of 70,s humour. The cheeky cherabim face of a young Robin Askwith, is also a plus!
