Movie Info

The multi-million dollar film extravaganza Cleopatra was too convenient a target for Britain's "Carry On" funsters to ignore. The plot of Carry On Cleo, if one can discern a plot amidst the sight gags and outrageous puns, involves the attempts by a bungling slave (Kenneth Connor) to rescue Julius Caesar (Kenneth Williams) from assassination. Instigators of the plot are Cleopatra (Amanda Barrie) and Mark Anthony (Sidney James), who comport themselves like a couple of Liverpool pub owners. The best bit involves Mark Anthony's "beheading" of the legendary asp. Filmed on a tight 160,000 pound budget and utilizing leftover sets from the Taylor/Burton epic, Carry On Cleo's reputation rests chiefly on a legal brouhaha involving its advertising artwork, which was deliberately patterned after the ads for the "real" Cleopatra. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Carry on Cleo (Caligula: Funniest Home Videos)

She had Lotions . . . and Potions . . . and Motions!

Super Reviewer

A good Carry on film set during the Roman empire.

Dean King

Super Reviewer

Probably the best of the Carry On's, this sends up swords and sandal/biblical epics with aplomb, complete with the usual "ooh, no missus" innuendo and daft slapstick. Good clean fun.
