CARRY ON SERGEANTBy Steve007 (26 reviews) from Powys , 31 Jan 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]The very first Carry on in the series, and it still has me in stitches even now. Im a big fan of the Carry on films, and this has to be among my favorites with the usual team of Kenneth Williams and co, plus appearances from Bill Owen (Last Of The Summer Wine), William Hartnell (the first Doctor Who) and Bob Monkhouse in an early role. Classic gags and it still has me laughing even now since the first time I saw it!! In my opinion, still an enjoyable film
Very datedBy a customer from Sheffield, England , 11 Feb 2011I loved the Carry On films when I was young. But this is so dated, the gags are no longer funny and it is just embarassing. Or maybe I'm just getting old
Carry On SergeantBy Miriam from Ealing, London , 27 Jun 2009Very funny and entertaining. I howled with laughter at the antics of the rookie recruits.
The assault course and bayonet practice in particular, were hilarious!
The start of an epic seriesBy a customer from Warrington , 23 Dec 2008
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide... and very different to the later Carry On films. A good example of the more gentle British humour of the late 50s with a plot concerning a group of freshly callled up national servicemen who bumble their way through initial training only to come good at the very end to ensure the eponymous sergeant takes the honours on his final day in the army. A little far-fetched at the end but it is a comedy after all. Plenty of good performances in a film which has the odd laugh out loud moment but contains more to smile about. On its own, not a great film I suppose but in context - with a feeling of nostalgia - a sort of landmark in British cinema to be enjoyed. Nice to see some great British actors most of whom are no longer with us.
funny as alwaysBy a customer from London,UK , 21 May 2007still great even now
