5.0 out of 5 stars The best Carry On film, 3 Aug 2008
This review is from: Carry On Abroad [DVD] [1972] (DVD)
This is definately my favourite of all of the Carry On Films. It is laughter from the moment it starts.
Kenneth Williams as Stuart Farquhar is fantastic especially when Peter Butterworth as the Spanish Hotel owner says 'Stupid What? when he first introduces his name.
Joan Sims and Sid James as husband and wife are hysterical and the scene where Sid smashes through the patio window when he thinks it hasnt got any glass in it, is superb........Joan Sims laughter really makes that scene and its so contageous.
The whole supporting cast are brilliant and there really is not just one star of this film they are all great. (Lovely Bernard Breslaw as Brother Bernard and the beautiful Carol Hawkins as the girl he takes a shine to....so many others to mention, of course Barbara Windsor being chased by Sid James, how could you have a Carry On without that!!).
Hattie Jacques has a smaller part as Floella the spanish wife of Pepe but the amount of time she is on screen had me in stitches.
June Whitfield is fab as the snooty Mrs Blunt and the scene at the dinner table with her, Sid, Joan and Kenneth Connor (who plays her husband) is one of the funniest where he offers her a cigarette and she says 'I tried it once and didnt like it'...then offers her wine 'I tried it once and didnt like it'...Sid says its strange and she says 'Not at all my daughter is just the same'....Sid then says 'Your only child I take it!!!'....fantastic!!
If you havent seen this film you must watch it, you really will laugh all the way through it.
