Audience Reviews for Carry on Cleo (Caligula: Funniest Home Videos)
She had Lotions . . . and Potions . . . and Motions!
A good Carry on film set during the Roman empire.
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.
