Quotes

George Mainwaring: The boys have been dragging their feet, lately.
Arthur Wilson: Yes, they have been a bit lax.
George Mainwaring: There's no need for Latin, Wilson. If the king's English is good enough for him, it's good enough for you. You're not at Cambridge now, you know.
Arthur Wilson: Oxford actually.

Inaccuracies
8 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

As a die hard fan of Dads Army, I was miffed with the inaccuracies in this film, firstly they said Pike had flat feet which is why he wasn't in the regular army when we know the reason was because he had a rare blood group, also when Jones told Mainwaring he hadn't shot anyone because he was a cook In the Army was also incorrect as it was Frazer who was a cook in the Navy, if you are going to make a film of a well loved TV series at least get it right, also Toby Jones wasn't pompous enough as Mainwaring, you hardly were aware of Jones and Frazer, I loved Godfreys character played by Michael Gambon, you got him spot on, also Wilson was good. Why was the film about Catherine Zeta Jones, its called Dads Army and it should have been about Dads Army, sadly she wasn't needed and she bored me to death cos I wanted to see more of the main characters with their well known phrases, I class myself as a firm fan as I watch the TV series several times a week and never get bored of it. If there is a next time at least get a fan of Dads Army to write the script so as not to disappoint fans
