Movie Info

Actor Frankie Howerd reprises his role from the British TV series Up Pompeii, in the tradition of the hugely popular Carry On series. The rest of the cast comes from these two series as well. There is a plot to kill the Emperor Nero (Patrick Cargill), and his loyal slave Lurcio (Howard) unwittingly comes into possession of a scroll which lists the names of the plotters. While he remains in the dark about it, both Nero's men and the original assassins pursue Lurcio, with many zany antics, through the streets (and orgies) of ancient Rome. Much of the humor comes in asides directed to the audience. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Up Pompeii


"Up Pompeii was a pretty disappointing British comedy. It's a film that would make a decent ten minute skit because that's about the degree of original comedy it contains." Full review at: http://www.commonsensemoviereviews.com/2010/10/up-pompeii-1971.html
