Super film
30 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film is extremely good. Very funny, especially because of George Cole's playing, revolutionary and unique. I believe it must have been a very annoying film in its age, since it actually presents the English as bad as the Soviets. I can't believe that it's so unknown. It's really very good, very satirical and very revolutionary:(Scientist to Minister: I made a mistake, our bomb will not cost 23.000.000 pounds, it will cost 230.000.000 pounds. Minister: Oh never mind, it's such a slight difference.(Right after that, the scene changes, with a supervisor speaking to a plumber)Supervisor: 23 pounds for the plumbing of a sports center is too much! You got to reduce the cost.)(This wasn't exactly the words but the difference is in the details. I don't think referring this is a spoiler.) I recommend it to everyone this film to everyone, and I personally estimate that this is a G-rated film, PG at worse. Great fun, originality, quality.
