"Ahoy there!  There's nothing like a Jolly Roger on the Seven Seas with the Carry On team.  There's the whiff of mutiny in the air as Juliet Mills runs away to seas disguised as a midshipman and ends up on a ship commanded by the wicked Captain Fearless (Kenneth Williams).  Can Able Seaman Poop-Decker (Bernard Cribbins) be trusted? Walk the prank plank in this swashbuckling yarn of high adventure and low comedy as the Carry On gang press gang the sauciest jokes and indulge in plenty of nautical anchor panky."

The Story

Twas the good ship Venus...Captain Fearless, constantly failing to live up to his name, is more concerned with the gout in his leg than his crew. Alber Poop-Decker joins the crew, only to lose his rank to impostor Sally. Chaos ensues as the crew mutiny. Meanwhile, Albert is falling in love with the new First Mate!




A bit of a dud, this one. The general tone of the film is darker than most, a fact which isn't helped by the absence of so many of the Carry On stars we all know and love. Having said that, Hawtrey & Williams make it an enjoyable romp, but I can't help wondering what it would have been like had Sid, Hattie and a few of the others been in it.
