Hot deal for someone but they haven't stood the test of time very well.

Well that's down to opinion. Like 'On The Buses', these films represent a period in time which we have now passed - one that is not politically correct! Humour was not caught up in the concept of trying to be uber cool - just to be funny! If you feel these films have'not stood the 'test of time' you probably have missed the point.

Yeah... Didn't really find them that funny the first time around, not really my cup of tea.

However, definitely a good price if it's your thing.

Great price bought mine for £60 last year and thought that was a bargain. Quidco should knock a couple of pound of the deal as well

Top deal for a slice of Carry on history...:thumbsup:

Yeah :whistling:

I'm a big fan of Hancock, Bilko, Steptoe & Son, Dad's Army and the like, They were made many years ago and have certainly stood the test of time. The carry on films were vulgar, crude and at that time it was funny for some.

I don't find them well written, I find the jokes obvious and the acting, well there isn't any really. They did have some comedy giants in them and that's about their saving grace.

I can stomach Sergeant and Nurse from the lot but they were early films made many many years before I was born.

I don't think I've missed the point, you obviously like them a lot and that tells me more about you than anything else.

Carry on Up the Khyber is the pick of the series, especially the dinner-party-whilst-under-siege scene.

Excuse me, just off for some tiffin'....

'Fakir off'

Brilliant

Quit moaning & accept that

1. this is a great deal for a boxed set
2. humour will always be at someones els's expense if you don't like it don't buy it.
3. But don't knock it

The shed loads of money spent on presnt humourless sit coms v cheap and cheerful
take ur pick I think these will still be around for another 30 years.

So when' was the last really funny british film you saw (that didn't copy the Americans)????

Couldn't agree more.

I'm not a fan per se, and hell some of the humour hasn't dated too well, but I know a deal when I see one:thumbsup:

1.I think I already said that
2. Duh!
3. Defending my initial post.

I voted hot as well ;-)

This is a terrific collection, it's just a shame that Convenience and Doctor are not in their original 16:9 anamorphic theatrical picture format (but, alas, cropped 4:3).

Massive fan of the series, but have 99% of them as singles.

I'm still waiting for Columbus to be included in a 'definitive' set (not that I particularly rate it - but it's still worth a look if your a fan) but apparently it's caught up in a legal ownership dispute (or something?), so until this is settled, unlikely to ever be released along side its counterparts... Afaik, its not even available on it's own atm in the UK?

Hopefully Carry on London will never see the light of day! The last I heard it had been pulled, again ;-)
