Trivia

The precise location of the fictional town of Walmington-on-Sea is revealed in the "Dad's Army - Official Trailer 2" by a red square marker, when a map is briefly shown pinpointing the location to be on the south coast of England, almost exactly equidistant for Brighton and Hastings or the red square markers of Portsmouth and Dover.

Goofs

In the 'camouflage' scene, the troops are standing in a field containing a cereal crop sown with a modern seed drill, complete with 'tramlines', not achievable until the early 1980s. See more »

George Mainwaring: You did nothing of the sort, not dressed like that. You're Disqualified!
Arthur Wilson: I thought I was being resourceful
George Mainwaring: You were being devious and underhand. It's no way for a spy to behave!

Crazy Credits

The closing credits sequence begins with a caption "You have been watching", followed by scenes of the various characters marching, with captions that show the actors' names but not their characters' names. This is exactly the same style as was used in the original TV series. See more »

Just watch the series instead
20 August 2016 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Being a fan of the original television series I'd thought it would be a good idea watching the movie they made out of it. I have to admit the characters were very resembling the original characters. But for someone who never saw the series before, this movie might be a bit boring because you just can't relive the original characters in your imagination. But even to me, I am not sure they had to make a movie out of it. The series were way funnier. I think the early format of short episodes work way better then a long movie. All in all the movie is watchable, but certainly not as funny as I expected to be. Maybe in the future a movie based on the series Allo Allo? Making fun of the Germans is always funny.
