Would that the Nazis had been comical
11 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

I am deleting after 49 minutes out of 77. You should stop earlier or not watch at all. The song, Yesterday's Dream is sweet, but everything else about this movie is preposterous and not funny. I guess it cheered up some kind of Brit, but it deserves the 1 star I saw it receive. Not a woman in sight, and these guys are all over each other in the broadest hammiest slapstick that doesn't work given the gravity of the subject matter. And it is really low budget, with the air scenes silly in an almost fascinating way. So if you have an interest in British low-comedy, this is the show for you. Otherwise, hit the delete button much sooner than 49 minutes - shame on me for thinking this movie could not be as bad as that 1-star indicated. Sometimes the mainstream critics are right.
