User Reviews

 
Very funny.
11 February 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Several attempts are made to rescue Rene and co from the POW camp, an audacious plot between Helga and Gruber is the most ingenious, the one hatched by Monsieur Alfonse, Monsieur Leclerc and Madame Fanny is less successful.

It's very funny, and very poignant, great how they managed to make something funny out of what was in reality a harrowing situation.

Singer is very funny as the Nun, one of the funniest scenes is when Herr Flick puts his periscope up.

Very funny, very memorable. 8/10
