Frequently Bought Together
Adapted from the long running play, this farcical caper revolves around the mistaken delivery of a saucy parcel to an innocent bank employee. Lots of 'trousers falling down' type slapstick ensues.

The idea of a load of stuffy bankers accidentally taking possession of a load of smut means that the film is so primed with potential farcical japes that it would almost be impossible not to have any. With that in mind it could quite easily have appeared to be a dated film trying to do something which had become tired a decade before this was released. Not so. Ronnie Corbett runs away with the show and is highly funny throughout. The script is very slick indeed and never relents in its desire to make you laugh. The humour is very much the slapstick and visual kind, with only a very few actual 'jokes', and most of those are plays on amusing Blue Film titles, but that never leaves you short changed at all. All the cast (but especially Ronnie C) are on fine form and scamper across the scenes with boundless energy.
There are also a few enjoyable cameos. Not only do we see Carry On honeybunnies Margaret Nolan and Valerie Leon. who didn't look like she had aged from the last time I had seen her semi-naked, (sadly in Carry On Girls, and not at the foot of my bed armed with a bottle of Hai Karate and a ready made decree nici from my wife). also Brian Wilde, Robin Askwith and Michael Robbins to name but a few.
If the kind of daft farce with lots of silly innuendo is not for you then avoid this like a Tesco Burger; but if you like to be made to chuckle and don't mind seeing Valerie Leon in her undies, then buy this right away!
Sadly, it appears to have some scenes missing on DVD and there are no extra features. Still, at least it's on DVD and at a very reasonable price.
Great little farcical comedy this one, with loads of the usual suspects from British TV and film from around that time. The comedy turns are really good and some of the slapstick is well done too, with a few witty lines thrown in for good measure. Not quite Carry On, but not far off and to be fair to it, it is probably better than a lot of the Carry Ons being made around 1973 and certainly most of the ones made after.
If your anything like me, this is worth watching purely for the location filming in and around the streets of Windsor, not that I grew up there but this era of film making evokes in me much nostalgia of better days gone by.
Ultimately (and I know how ignorant this will make me sound) if you like Carry Ons and/or any of that whole gamut of bawdy English double entendre/farce comedy from the 60's or 70's, then you will like this. If however you feel that any film made before 1985 is old and therefore rubbish then you probably wont!!
The DVD as mentioned by other reviewers is a decent enough print but cut, which is really annoying, and it is also bare bones. Come on 'Network' (I know you guys probably don't have the rights yet but...) a good uncut print would be nice?!
I find it simply hilarious, I dare anyone to try and NOT laugh at the chilli scene, it cracks me up every time!
I find it interesting that many of the characters, many of whom work in a bank, are all meant to be rather straight laced, the bank manager (Arthur Lowe), the deputy manager (Ian Ogilvy) and the accountant type (Ronnie Corbett) but each manage to bring a new level of comedy to the film as they bounce lines off each other.
As the name suggests the humour is a very British type of humour, all the more reason I love it so much.
