Overview

The producers of the popular British "Carry On" series aren't going to fix something if it is not broken. This workable, slapstick comedy returns to a hospital setting and benefits from the same gags that made Carry On, Nurse a top draw in Britain. Instead of Dr. Kildare, this emergency unit has Dr. Kilmore Jim Dale, the usual curmudgeon supervisor Kenneth Williams and a bedpan full of quirky quacks and petulant patients. The hospital staff is plagued by bathroom humor, romance, medical mistakes and beautiful nurses who distract the doctors and patients alike. Sight gags and comedy ensues, and this film is just what the doctor ordered for those in need of some laughs.

    typical tongue-in-cheek English Humour

    My husband and I saw this movie as well as all the other Carry On series when we dated 49 years ago. We love seeing all these English comedies all over again. The funniest part of this movie is when the patient complains about being there several days and not receiving medical attention, but as he says, that is your "National Healthcare" for you. Sounds like a familiar topic these days, but proof it doesn't work like people think it does. Very funny dry-English humour.
