POSTER TITLE RATING
Carry On Sergeant

(1958)

 

Plot Summary

Sergeant Grimshaw wants to retire in the flush of success by winning the Star Squad prize with his very last platoon of newly called-up National Servicemen. But what a motley bunch they turn out to be, and it’s up to Grimshaw to put the no-hopers through their paces.

Verdict

The first Carry On film and it shows, lead character is played by Bob Monkhouse and not one of the regular team of which only Kenneth Williams, Charles Hawtrey, Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Connor are present in supporting roles.

It’s fun but lacks the humour and slapstick you expect from the series.
