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.

Goofs

The second time US Churchill and Denzil Eisenhower are dockside; as Eisenhower drives the jeep towards camera, what he mouths to US Churchill, and what comes through on audio - doesn't match initially - although as they near the camera, mid-sentence, the audio works its way back in synch.

Great Cast, Great Humour, Great Movie
5 December 2004 | by (North West, England) – See all my reviews

On entering the cinema to see this film today, I had very low expectations for this film. Leaving the cinema, I felt entertained, amused and not robbed of my £5.30.

I expected this film to be a gung-ho version of how the Americans saw the war. That is what I got, but the film really poked fun at the state of mega-budget American Historcal dramas. The whole idea of the film was excellent, the story, although very thin was laced with excellent set jokes and well placed one liners.

This is clearly a British Film. The whole look of the film was British. A large proportion of the cast were British. If you are British, have a basic knowledge of WW2 and a British sense of humour, you will love it.

You only have to look at the cast, see what sort of film you are getting. From the British comedy front Steve Pemberton and Mackenzie Crook shone.

Overall, this is by no means the greatest or funniest film of the year, but if you want a typically British movie go and see it!
