The Carry On team were the cream of British comedy, having made over 30 films and being a consistent success throughout it’s creation they have become a landmark of British culture and cinematic history. Sid James, Barbara Windsor, Joan Sims, Kenneth Connor and Bernard Bresslaw star in this the 24th Carry On film.
When a beauty contest is voted upon in the fictional seaside resort of Fircombe by the parish council, Sidney Fiddler (Sid James) is the chief organiser. When formidable Councillor Prodworthy, head of the local women’s liberation movement, decides to fight the decision The Mayor (Kenneth Connor) and Sidney have a battle on there hands. From one hilarious incident to the next, from the Mayors frequent embarrassing situations to the decision to put a man in the contest for publicity, Carry On Girls contains some great comedic scenes as well as great tongue in cheek humour.
Carry On Girls is a laugh-a-minute film that has me in hysterics every time I see it. Sid James is a great comedy actor and plays the “dirty old man with finances and females on the brain” very well, the performances are all great, it brings a smile to your face and is a very good comedy. If you can look past the simplicity of the film and the plot, and can appreciate the jokes, you can’t go wrong with the Carry On team.
