Carry On with dated humour
22 February 1999 | by funzieSee all my reviews

British bawdy Doctors 'n' Nurses film in standard theme plot(?) introduced in the "Carry On" series of comedies. Updated for mid-1970s with introduction of full nudity. Very risque for its day, no doubt. Also very distinctive cheesy theme tune. Probably persuaded as many British adolescent males to become interested in studying for medical profession as more conventional methods.
