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

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 »

Just after Lieutenant Baker and Captain Davies have been admitted into the Prime Minister's office, the doors get closed behind them. Next shot, the doors are ajar. Then, in the next shot, the doors are even more open while the camera zooms in. See more »

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 !
