Goofs

Mr. Docherty wears the uniform of the Civil Defence Corps. This unit was formed in 1949, long after the WW2 setting for this film. With his white "W" helmet, he should have worn an ARP uniform. See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Docherty: You seem to have forgotten the way she works. When you need her but do not want her, then she must stay. When you want her, but no longer need her, then she has to go. I know from personal experience.

Stellar Cast - Pity they forgot a script!
29 March 2010 | by boobicSee all my reviews

OK, first things first. The audience I saw this movie with was made up of very young kids and they loved it. So, if you want your children to see a film that is completely harmless with a bit of a moral then this is the movie for you.

If you're looking for an adult friendly film to see along with your rugrats, then think again.

The plot is moronic. The script equally so with Emma Thompson mugging her way through the story as a female Roger Moore, that is, she thinks she can portray all kinds of feelings and emotions by raising an eyebrow. Trust me, she can't! What annoyed me most about this mishmash was the whole 1950's Enid Blyton view of England. That is except this is set in 1940's England during World War II and no-one except for maybe Maggie Gyllenhall has a 1940's haircut! Maybe that's a small thing but if they are going to set a movie someplace in time then maybe they should at least adhere to the small facts? Maggie Gyllenhall's English accent is superb, in fact I spent a good part of the first half of the movie trying to work out where I'd seen her before she was that good.

Ralph Fiennes, wasted. Sam Kelly, doing an English version of his 'Tler character from 'Allo 'Allo. Ewen McGregor coming on at the end to snog Maggie.

Sorry, superb cast. Totally wasted!
