The Carry On team throw caution to the wind and present a glorious wallow in good clean lavatorial humour! Kenneth Williams plays W.C. Boggs, the troubled owner of a small company trying to manufacture fine toiletware. Bolshy unionist Vic Spanner (Kenneth Cope) soon has the workforce out on strike and its down to Boggs, his son Lewis (Richard OCallaghan), works foreman Sid Plummer (Sid James) and floral-shirted designer Charles Coote (Charles Hawtrey) to rally the troops. But they soon discover that nothing sends you further round the bend than women scorned!
In 1971 when Carry On at Your Convenience hit our screens, the series had long since become part of the fabric of British popular entertainment. Never mind the situation, the characters were essentially the same, film after film. The jokes were all as old as the hills, but nobody cared, they were still funny. But it's just too easy to treat them as a job lot of postcard humour and music hall innuendo. This tale of revolt at a sanitary ware factory--Boggs and Son, what else?--certainly chimed in with the state of the nation in the early 1970s when strikes were called at the drop of a hat. Here, tea urns, demarcation and the company's decision to branch out into bidets all wreak havoc. Kenneth Williams as the company's besieged managing director, Sidney James and Joan Sims give their all as usual, but it's the lesser roles that really add some lustre. Hattie Jacques as Sid's budgerigar-obsessed, sluggish put-upon wife and Renee Houston as a superbly domineering battleaxe with a penchant for strip poker remind us that in the hands of fine actors, even the laziest of caricatures become real human beings. --Piers Ford

However, as far as the film goes, it is an absolute scream, IMHO the best every Carry On film catches the essence of the 70's unions (down wiv em!) and the trip to Brighton with a very drunk Mr Boggs (Kenneth Williams) and what's his name that Charles Hawtrey played never fails to make me laugh. Worth a watch, wrong to make us pay if you're on Prime!
Sadly nothing remotely like this now. From an era when the audience was taken into account and not the image/ego of actors.
