It Carried On!
I have just watched my first two "Carry On" films: this one and Carry on Cleo. I am a big fan of Round the Horne, so I was overjoyed to find out that Kenneth Williams (whom I have never seen in real life- on film or TV, etc.) would be the star. However, I was disapponted with Carry on Jack; either it is because Williams doesn't have a very big part as he did in C.O. Cleo, or there was two much action and a very unfunny side plot (the first-mates or whoever plotting against the captain). As well, Albert Poopdecker wasn't as funny as I had hoped, as he was pretty much the main character. It was "Yeah, I see the humour." but wasn't laugh-out-loud stuck-with-you humour.
Overall, Carry On Cleo was by far the funniest so far; Carry On Jack can just, well, carry on and keep going!
