Storyline

In this irreverent parody, the British court and war government consist mainly of idiots and/or traitors. Hitler moves into Buckingham palace and plans to marry into the Windsors. A US Army officer claims the cigar-smoking iconic PM was an actor, Ray Bubbles, impersonating his own father, USMC lieutenant Winston Churchill, a genius spy who stole an enigma code machine and almost single-handedly won a very alternative battle for Britain.

Trivia

'Winston Churchill' receives his first ever "actor" credit in this film, playing the part of Roy Bubbles. However, the role was played unwittingly, as the film uses archive footage of Winston in public to fit the part. See more »

Goofs

In the scene in the "Irish Cockney" pub, there is a quick cut away from Lillybet (without glasses), and back (with glasses). It is doubtful whether she could have put them on so quickly. See more »

Quotes

Winston Churchill: Here we go, Chester. Blood, sweat, 'n toil.
Chester: Good luck, Mr Churchill. Win the war for us, won't you, Sir?
Winston Churchill: You bet. God bless America.
Chester: I wish I was American.

Enjoyable Spoof
4 December 2004 | by (Sheffield, UK) – See all my reviews

Great idea - overplayed in places, but still enjoyable.

If they'd have been a bit more subtle in places they'd have made a better film. Performances of Neve Campbell as Princess Elizabeth and Phil Cornwall as Martin Boreman (with a great east-end accent) really stand out. Pity they didn't have time to develop some of the supporting roles especially the irish cockney of Mackenzie Crook and Miranda Richardson as Eva Braun

One to look back on laugh. Just wish they could do a sequel but in reverse - the British all action hero Churchill saving America from the Communist threat !
