Movie Info

A group of American executives making a film about World War II decide that since their lead is rather unglamorous, they will draft in an American G.I. to play the part of Winston Churchill. Their take on the war depicts a handsome Churchill falling in love with Princess Elizabeth, who is herself involved in the war as an undercover agent. Together the glamorous couple uncover a secret plot within the royal palace itself and battle to save the world from the evil clutches of Hitler.

  • The humour is largely underpant-based and of the all-mincing, all-flouncing gay stereotype variety, which looks like a barefaced insult to the audience

  • Occasionally familiar, but always funny - it's a work of comedy genius that you'd be desperately sad to miss.

Audience Reviews for Churchill: The Hollywood Years

  • Feb 21, 2012
    I may have not reviewed them all the ones I've watched but I'm on a slow journey to own and watch every single film with Christian Slater in, not only does this require busting out the old VCR but it also runs the risk of watching some potentially awful films, one of which I thought would be 'Churchill: The Hollywood years', suffice to say I was pleasantly pleased.Okay, son the narrative is a bit jolted, the film had about four endings and the whole set up featured in modern times wasn't the greatest idea, but this is a comedy and it's certainly not meant to be taken seriously, especially since Slater plays Churchill if he was an American G.I that marries queen Elizabeth, rediculous. But fun.This was one of the Slater films I was most worried about and I'm happy it turned out reasonably well. Even if it is pasted with annoying moments it still gets some good laughs and is an enjoyable 80 minutes.

    The jokes in this film are like waiting for a train. You hear them coming, know that they are coming and them watch them shuffle into the station, ashamed.

    slater plays churchill, a hollywood version of wartime british prime minister, but herehes a american one man army, taking on all comers, in the name of america and freedom, yes hollywood remaking history, it always happens but here actually co financed by a british company, a bit of a laugh is trying to be made, funny in parts, sometimes hits the mark, but also doesnt, quite brief also which helps, many british comedy, and tv stars turn out, in a interesting story, one ctual highlight being neve cambell playing a gun ho queen elizebeth in her youth, and ready for action, slater, is charming as churchill
