"The Carry On team take a package holiday which starts disastrously and rapidly goes downhill.

The paradise island of Elsbels is not all it's cracked up to be. The hotel isn't finished, the staff are a bit thin on the ground (in fact Pepe is the staff) and Pearl Harbour would have been more restful!

A catalogue of disasters beset the gang that will keep you in fits of laughter.

Enjoy this holiday of a laughtime!"
 

The Story

The Spanish resort of Elsbels seems idyllic from the brochures. It isn't until a group of holiday makers, led by guide Stuart Farquhar, alight on the hotel, that they realise the place is no more than a building site. The staff of the half-built hotel decide to hold a party to placate the tourists, after all, things can't get any worse...can they?

   

 

Comments

The last time all the regular cast were in the same film together, this is a fitting tribute to a great team. Plenty to keep both die hard fans and casual viewers amused, Carry On Abroad manages to be a highly enjoyable romp. Savour it, because things were never quite the same after this one.
