It’s Benny Hill meets Gomer Pyle in this charming war time comedy!
The true story of two members of England’s Army Dental Corps, Sgt. Peter King, a World War I veteran looking to die fighting, and Private Leslie Cuthbertson, a wet-behind-the-ears trainee, whose dedication to helping the war effort during World War II inspired them to leave their posts and sneak into occupied territory in 1942 (long before D-Day). The two dentists find love, friendship and ultimately a German radar station in this good-hearted comic gem that shows that being a real heroes comes from the heart

This unabashedly nostalgic film, mocks the absurdity of war, but between the chuckles…plucks the heartstrings…

Sunday Express

John Shea, TNMC

Wonderful, Utterly funny.
Simon Rose, BBC

A particular delight with a couple of great visual gags…well worth an evening invasion of the art house.
M.E. Russell, Portland Oregonian

Impressive…refreshingly quiet alternative to the loud, dumbed-down studio films…

A charming little entertainment about two lovable, albeit misguided, patriots.
Film Journal

resolutely old- fashioned comedy… whimsical
SF Chronicle

…Drops a pinch of ‘Catch-22’ into it’s already rich stock of understated British absurdity…endearing.
Denver Post

It’s comedic fun all the way through in this amusing buddy film. Underdogs, unsung heroes, lunatics — call them what you will, they manage to accomplish what they dreamed of doing, for King and Country in a fun and humanistic way!
Andrew Johnston, North American Film Review
