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.

This comedy uses as a running joke the Hitler one testicle gag from a version of "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball" lyrics sung to the Colonel Bogey March. It's even seen performed at a London concert much to Hitler's chagrin. The lyrics for the version performed here are: "Hitler has only got one ball, Göring has two but very small, Himmler is somewhat sim'lar, But poor old Goebbel's got no balls at all." Hitler's high-ranking off-siders Goebbels and Göring appear in the film. See more »

If you've seen one Hollywood action blockbuster too many, then you need to see Churchill on top of it. 'Churchill: the Hollywood Years' mercilessly pokes fun at American action movies, war adaptations, Nazis, and of course the British themselves, with the whole premise being to have fun with Royal Family and the iconic British leader Winston Churchill. Suffice it to say, it hits the mark spot on. It's absurd, crazy comedy at its best, meticulously going through the motions of generic action movie plot lines and showing how ridiculous they and their predetermined plot arches are. Amid all the rapid-fire comedic jabs and gags we see great parody performances, especially Harry Enfield's King George VI. If you're not laughing out loud by the big climax, you could be British, or worse, German!
