brilliant......By williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 28 Oct 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Carry On Cleo is one of the best of the Carry On films.
the cast are all on top form with Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar and Sid James as Mark Anthony. Also included in the cast are Amanda Barrie as Cleo, Joan Sims, Jim Dale, Kenneth Connor as well as guest appearances from Sheila Hancock and Warren Mitchell. the best one liner in Carry On Cleo is 'infamy, infamy, they've all got it in for me' which Kenneth Williams cries in his role as Julius Caesar as he is about to be killed. a fabulous film to watch on a sunday afternoon.

funny as can be expectedBy cheesekake (1501 reviews) from uk , 29 Sep 2012you often wonder how they got away with these films, when they were made in an age where propriety in films was important, but get away with it they did, and like no one else could.
defo a classic to watch
Infamy, Infamy ...By Tillyflop (100 reviews) from England , 07 Mar 2010This is one of the classic Carry On films before they became too vulgar and not at all funny.
Completely daft but very funny Carry On Cleo is a must see - absolutely nothing to do with real history but who cares - just sit back and enjoy the film. Forget Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton ... Amanda Barrie and Sid James are much funnier!
Great British Humour !By a customer from Feltham , 20 Aug 2009What can you say about this film,it's british humour at it's best.
Made as a spoof of the original film 'Cleopatra' with Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton in it.
The sets were allegedly re-used from the Cleopatra film.When Sidney James looked inside his costume it had Richard Burton's name in it.
If you've never seen this film before, rent it out.
