A pair of dentists deal their own unique blow against the Third Reich in this low-key British comedy, which is actually based on a true story. In 1942, war rages all through Europe as Nazi Germany has taken France, attacked London, and defeated British forces at Dunkirk. In the midst of this chaos, Sgt. Peter King (Kenneth Cranham) and Pvt. Leslie Cuthbertson (Leo Bill) are serving in the village of Aldershot as part of the Royal Army Dental Corps, whose motto is "An Army Who Can't Bite, Can't

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
As straightforward as its title, delivering exactly what you would expect: a pleasant bit of stiff-upper-lip nostalgia with a touch of whimsy.
More often than not, Two Men Went to War resembles a feature-length episode of Hogan's Heroes.
The mission, which the soldiers codenamed Operation Mad Dog, would have been delicious as a documentary, but director John Henderson goes for an antic Two Stooges Abroad approach.
Wait for Two Men Went to War to go to the small screen.
Winds up as a charming little entertainment about two lovable, albeit misguided, patriots.
An enjoyable, amusing and unpretentious film about a couple of English eccentrics - dentists whose eccentricity is not evident until their actions gave them away.
A mish-mashed historical drama sunk by its flattened tone... on the one hand clamorous and eventful but ultimately also quite tedious and tiresome.
Henderson's warm and toasty little gem of a film, slight though it may be, reminds you that the Greatest Generation, full of vim, vigor, and -- most important -- an indefatigable sense of purpose, grew up on both sides of the Big Pond.
Here's something you wouldn't have thought possible after the gory realism of "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Thin Red Line": a sweet, whimsical little World War II film.
A curiously feeble wartime comedy...to be filed under the heading of 'Might Have Beens.'
An understated charmer inspired by true events.
A delightful little comedy told with a great deal of warmth and charm. It's a unique kind of war story that may not win the war, but has no trouble winning over the audience.
Far from an anti-war film, Two Men is more in line with In Which We Serve (1942) than Oh! What a Lovely War (1969).
