Review

When a film encompasses all that is great about the Carry On films, how can it fail to be anything other than spectacular?  That’s Carry On is a fitting tribute to a series which has delighted viewers around the world for decades and the selection of clips chosen includes just about every classic Carry On moment you could ever hope to see. 

However, there is a definite air of finality to the production and that alone makes That’s Carry On something of a disappointment.  Kenneth and Barbara are the perfect hosts.  They tease each other affectionately and in doing so welcome the viewer into their cosy little world to share a few laughs and happy memories.  But the continual references to the Carry Ons in the past tense add a somewhat gloomy air to an otherwise glorious celebration of our most beloved comedy institution.
