Sidney (Sid James) and Sophie Bliss (Hattie Jacques), the proprietors of Wedded Bliss computer dating agency seem like the perfect married couple, but Sid uses the female clients as his personal knocking-shop. When they do match couples together they seem to be as mismatched as you could imagine.
The initial match of Bertie Muffett (Richard O’Callaghan), a tin-foil aeroplane collector, and Sally Martin (Jacki Piper), a model, seems another failure on Sid’s part, but they are perhaps the only couple that do seem to hit it off.
Carry On Loving, an enormous box office success due to its sexy subject matter and touching on the free-love ethic of the sixties, was really a reworking of Carry On Regardless. There is no strong plot but just a collection of sketches bound together by the Wedded Bliss agency. Talbot Rothwell, the writer, seems to get lost at the end and to cover this up, pulls an old solution out of the hat a pie fight. This is certainly towards the bottom of the list and was a taste of worse things to come.
