Synopsis

Jim Dale and Sara CroweChristopher Columbus persuades the King and Queen of Spain to put up the money for an expedition to the Far East using a new route that will keep him out of the evil Sultan of Turkey’s way.  The Sultan, having the only known route to the East, has his pick of all the goods and fines anybody who dares to question his rule, so a new route to the East would be beneficial.  When the evil Sultan discovers the expedition he sends Fatima and Achmed to make the mission fail.  But as this is Columbus he doesn’t end up in the East, he ends up in America.  Give us a light

Is this resurrection, 14 years after the last one, any good?  Frankly, no.   It isn’t really a Carry On, for the reason that there are too many missing faces.  Jim Dale plays his part with his usual gusto and you can see that some of the actors were put into their parts for the Carry On regular similarities such as Julian Clary/Kenneth Williams, Sara Crowe/Barbara Windsor.

An opportunity was missed with this film, but perhaps the feel of the originals can never ever be repeated now because the Carry Ons’ were the actors.
