Sid Boggle (Sid James) and his bumbling mate, Bernie Lugg (Bernard Bresslaw) hit on the idea of a nudist camp holiday to spice things up with their girlfriends. But for Sid the fun really starts when Dr. Soaper (Kenneth Williams), Headmaster of the Chayste Place Finishing School and his Matron, Miss Haggard (Hattie Jacques), arrive with a gaggle of nubile girls. Under the crooked eye of Joshua Fiddler (Peter Butterworth) the money-grabbing site proprietor, chaos follows confusion. There are goings-on after lights out, collapsing tents, a mix-up with a mad bull, panic in the washrooms and a rude awakening from a bunch of hippies. Prepare for an onslaught of robust breezy humour when the Carry On team take to the great outdoors.
Made in 1969, Carry On Camping belongs to the Golden Years before the loveable double-entendres had been replaced by an almost nasty sleaziness. Pretty much everybody is present and correct, if not politically. Sid James is a likely-ish, if slightly elderly lad, persuading Joan Sims to join him at what he secretly expects to be a nudist colony. Terry Scott is a put-upon suburban, coerced into outdoor vacations by his ghastly, horsey-laughed wife, while Charles Hawtrey is the campest of campers who befriends them. Kenneth Williams, who alone makes this worth watching, is gloriously ridiculous as head of a girl's school, Chayste Place, with Hattie Jacques as Matron and Barbara Windsor as one of the 30-year-old fifth formers in their charge. Technically it's terrible stuff, with Barbara Windsor's flying bra, laboured puns galore, peeping tomfoolery, punchlines visible two miles off, "comedy" incidental music and a reactionary denouement in which they chase off a bunch of hippies. Yet if you don't chuckle at least half a dozen times during this, however many times you've seen it, there's probably something wrong with you. --David StubbsSee all Product description

Plenty of innuendo and the best cast.
With characters like Josh Fiddler, Mrs Fussey and Sid Boggle to Babs and Fanny.
About time it was transferred to bluray!
If own only one classic carry on movie, make it this one.
Not one of my favourites and I watch it more for the characters and the stars left who comment on them.
