Shameless moneyspinner
29 December 2012 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THAT'S CARRY ON is a compilation film consisting of various and extensive clips from most of the CARRY ON flicks, linked together by returning actors Kenneth Williams and Barbara Windsor. The plot - if you can call it such - sees them sharing some time together in a projection booth while they reminisce over the old days and share plenty of saucy laughs.

There's a definite mercenary feel to this production, the impossible-to-ignore realisation that it was purely made just to wring a few more coins out of a by-then jaded movie-going public. The CARRY ON stable had long since been on the wane and the wraparound filler material is extremely feeble compared to the good old days.

I sometimes enjoy watching compilation movies, as they're good for both introducing worthwhile-but-unseen films to the viewer or for nostalgia purposes, sharing memorable moments like old friends. THAT'S CARRY ON doesn't really work in either respect, as at the end of it you just wish you'd watched one of the proper CARRY ONs instead...
