Léon Hunt describes the film along with Ford's What's Up Superdoc! as a "return to the Carry On films' favourite setting to explore slap-and-tickle amidst the bedpans."[2] Sarah Street said that Ford's films Commuter Husbands (1972), Keep It Up, Jack (1973), The Sexplorer (1975) and What's Up Nurse (1977) were "films with salacious titles designed to titillate dwindling audiences with their suggestion of breaking taboos."[3] Michael Hawkes awarded the film 3 out of 5 stars.[4]
