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.

The Adolf Hitler character is mistaken for Charles Chaplin on more than one occasion in this movie. Once by a cab driver and once by the King, Hitler is the subject of mistaken identity joke for Chaplin's the Tramp character from the classic silent comedy The Gold Rush (1925) where he is remembered for eating his shoe. Interestingly, it is of note that Chaplin spoofed and parodied Adolf Hitler in his later movie, The Great Dictator (1940), See more »
Thrice, we see Lieutenant Baker and Captain Davies in the PM's office; once towards the beginning of the film, once towards the end, and once just into the credits. In the first instance, there appears to be some sort of card propped upright as part of the decor on the mantelpiece, behind the PM, to the (viewers') left. This card disappears partway through the second instance in the PM's office, and stays gone from there on in. 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!
