Kenneth Williams is W.C. Boggs, the troubled owner of a small company trying to manufacture fine toiletware. Incompetent management and a bolshy union are just about the least of Bogg's problems as you'll soon discover in this hysterical comedy that tells you everything you always wanted to know about your home's most vital convenience...

Carry On At Your Convenience was the first of the Carry On movies to fail to recoup its money back from UK cinema sales. While it eventually made money when it moved into International waters, it was a disappointment nevertheless.

One of the reasons that has always been given for its failure at the UK box office was its right wing story line. With a union rep who is a pain in the arse and will do anything to go on strike it didn't really attract many fans - especially when you consider that strikes were common place during this period.

The movies conclusion sees the bosses winning and the union rep made to look foolish - now you see why the general public stayed away in droves.

Extras include an interesting audio commentary with Richard O'Callaghan and Jacki Piper; Photo gallery with captions; Theatrical trailer; Carry On Laughing: The Case of the Screaming Wrinkles; and film trivia notes.

Despite its faults, this is still an enjoyable movie which also sees the Carry On team on location as the they head to Brighton for the summer company outing.
