Frankie Howerd, Shirley Eaton, and David Tomlinson star in this madcap Royal Navy comedy in which a crew of indulgent ne'er-do-wells who will do anything for a buck are assigned to look after an inadequate and obsolete frigate until the Navy can sell it off. As is their nature, the mischievous crew sells tickets for a cruise on the ship under the pretense that it's an ocean liner!
Crikey! The Royal Navy has finally entered the nuclear age and is selling off its obsolete old frigates to the Arabs! First to go is HMS Aristotle - the secret shame of the Fleet! Under the temporary command of Bosun Dibble (FRANKIE HOWERD), the ship is a hive of vice with its crew willing to do anything to make a few quid. When they hear they will be sailing for the Mediterranean nation of Algerrocco, they see one last chance to make a few bob - by pretending their frigate is really a luxury cruise liner and selling tickets! Of course, new Captain Humphrey Fairweather RN (DAVID TOMLINSON) knows nothing of the crews schemes, but with a wild bunch of passengers including THORA HIRD chasing the Bosun and SHIRLEY EATON threatening to strip off and sunbathe, how long can he be kept in the dark' The sequel to the Hammer Films smash hit UP THE CREEK, FURTHER UP THE CREEK serves up nautical naughtiness aplenty!
