"This is a Boulting Brothers cast in a "Carry On" movie. It's not as bad as Leonard Maltin thinks, but it just isn't very good. Ian Carmichael, Dennis Price, Sid James, Liz Fraser, Janette Scott and the rest of the first-rate comedy actors do their best with a very lame script that depends upon tight clothes and jiggling from the women and slapstick from the men. The story is about a couple of newlyweds who buy a lame old houseboat, take it to sea, wind up in France, and then best their crooked landlord (he owns the wharf) in a bet to see who gets home first. The DVD, by the way, is first class; the film looks fresh. Now if only it were funny."
