Could have been better!!!.

Thats Carry on is not bad. But some scenes are poor. The clips are a good tribute. But the clips with Babs and Kenny are rude unfunny sad and embarrassing. The bit at the beginning where they are in the dark is crude. Its not funny you can guess straight away what they are saying means. " Push the knob in,it wont work unless you push the knob in". The whole script is poor. The end is pathetic with Kenny being locked inside the room when he is bursting for the toilet.Overall a poor Carry on.The carry ons where meant to be harmless fun. By 1976 onwards they had become a laughing stock. England was diabolical , Behind wasn't bad, Emmnanuelle was the lowest of all lows and definitely was the end. Colombus wasn't bad but sad. Thats carry on 5/10

Shameless moneyspinner

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...

THAT'S CARRY ON (Gerald Thomas, 1977) **

This is rather a lackluster "Best Of" compilation overall; it takes a more-or-less chronological look at the series but then omits entirely the most recent effort up to that time i.e. CARRY ON ENGLAND (1976)! Linking material features stalwarts Kenneth Williams and Barbara Windsor mugging and witlessly chatting; however, no real discussion is made on how the series evolved to begin with…or, for that matter, any background given on individual performers.

Some of the series highlights are seen, to be sure – and Williams does single out his role in CARRY ON...UP THE KHYBER (1968; scenes from which open and close this film) as being his personal favorite – but, watched out of context, they just don't have the desired effect (even if several of them came from entries I viewed only recently)!
