Goofs

After the British police decide to fly to Dunkerque Alan Holiday hears the tug-boat horn and looks out of one of the windows of the train. He gets a clear view of the back of the tug (the "Gaillard") which would not be possible from his vantage point inside the train which is itself inside the ship. The shot is obviously taken from a jetty - the mooring lines of the ferry are clearly visible. See more »

9 November 2018 | by charlesadamekSee all my reviews

It is so hard to take Leslie Nielsen seriously in this role. Every so often, you expect him to break into his Inspector Drebbin routine, and the movie might have been watchable if he had. Without giving any spoilers, just two sample observations:

You need a disguise, Of course you do. So you don a Grouch Marx pair of glasses complete with nose and mustache.

You want a clever subterfuge? Dress up one of the characters in a bear costume. This serves the approximate purpose of the gorilla suit in an Abbott & Costello comedy. I wonder who is in that suit now....

Life is too short to waste 90 minutes of it on this flick.
