Two Men Went to War, 2002 5/10, 32nd best of 2002, 220th best of the 2000's, 671st all time
A war comedy from England, Two Men Went to War is based on the true story of two British dentists who invaded Germany with pistols and grenades months before the invasion of Normandy, and actually lived to tell about it. The movie was alright, and actually had some pretty funny moments. However, the movie certainly had its faults. The actor playing the young soldier played him a little two goofey and stupid, the older soldier was played quite a bit better. Overall this movie was just okay. If it sounds like something you'd like, you'll probably think its all right, if it sounds like you wouldn't like it, you probably won't.
