I wouldn't have thought Teacher was a bad film, maybe not everyones biscuit though. But Henry? are you mad? :D :D :D

Though Girls and Don't Lose Your Head are deserving of their place.

I suppose Henry is better than a lot of the others, it's certainly better than Jack.

Worst - too many, but the pits is probably Carry On Emmanuelle - notable only for the fact that you get to see Kenneth William's bare arse.

I think the worst is England by far, Emmannuelle was good compared to that.

Screaming

Worst:

England

I can't vouch for other "bad" ones, not having seen them. I started watching "Emmanuelle" - it was so bad I had to turn it off, but it would have to be spectacularly bad to be worse than "England".

It's funny how the vast majority of the worst Carry Ons by you folks are some of my favourites.

I love both Emmanuelle and England.

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Of its own accord, Carry On Emmanuelle is a weak but tolerable film. When contrasted to the rest of the series, it's barely worth acknowledging. Only the combined performance of Davies and Connor, as someone else noted, make it worthwhile.

Kenneth Williams's bare arse was on display years earlier in Carry On Constable. Along with the bare posteriors of Kenneth Connor, Leslie Phillips and Charles Hawtrey.

While many learned professors have abandoned hope of ever discovering the truth behind Kenneth Williams's bare arse, I for one feel that it is still a worthy cause for examination. I find myself constantly drawn to the subject of Kenneth Williams's bare arse. Crossing many cultural barriers, it still draws remarks such as 'I wouldn't touch it with a disinfected, condom-covered, barge pole' and 'i'd rather have Bigfella sit naked on my face', Kenneth Williams's bare arse clearly plays a significant role amongst developing comedy writers and is legendary. The World and Stephen Hawking rely, more than ever before, on Kenneth Williams's bare arse. Society says that every man and woman must find their own truth - which could well be found - yes - within Kenneth Williams's bare arse.
