A decent attempt. Shame it's not a funny one.

Lets face it, everyone involved in this was on a hiding to nothing from the start. If this film had too many nods to the original (and beloved) TV series, it would be criticised. If it tried to be its own beast, it would be criticised.

In the end it fails as a film because a) it tries to be a bit of both, and b) it just simply isn't funny.

There are some talented people involved, all doing very respectful takes on the original characters, but they are working with a weak (and often historically inaccurate) script that means they are lumbered doing imitations, rather than putting their own spin on the roles.

It's a shame this isn't good, but I can't say I'm surprised.

Why, oh why?

I'm sorry, but with the best will in the world I wanted to like this movie. I've probably watched all the original series when they were first televised and thought that they were so, so funny. I watched the DVD's of the series several years ago and still found them highly amusing, not as funny as when I originally saw them but that, to a certain extent, is understandable. However, this remake!! It is so not funny! The dialogue and interaction between the characters is woefully weak. If I were to see that sort of interaction in a school play rehearsal I would seriously consider canceling the show! Why do producers think it is good value to remake classics without the original actors? Could you imagine a remake of Steptoe and Son without Wilfred Brambell and Harry H Corbett? Perish the thought! Sorry, but this movie is a no-no for me and I would advise anyone who has a 'soft spot' for the original 'Army' to stick to your good memories of that show and not to spoil those memories with this poor attempt at an alternative version.

Pretty adorable

Dad's Army is one of those adorable, "old guys still got it" movies that comes out every once in a while, sprinkled in among the "let's make fun of old people" movies that are never any good. Starring Bill Nighy, Toby Jones, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay, and Bill Paterson, a group of over-the-hill volunteers is in charge of protecting their town during WWII. No one really takes them seriously, and when Catherine Zeta-Jones shows up and starts charming everyone in the regiment, that doesn't make them any more credible.

This is a very cute movie and has plenty of classic British gags, if you like that type of humor. If you usually groan and try to avoid British humor-and if you prefer your leading men to be under fifty-you probably won't like this one. I thought it was adorable, and I always find Bill Nighy dashing, no matter what age he is. Plus, when you least expect it, you get to watch a very exciting and suspenseful battle scene!
