Critic Reviews for Dad's Army
For fans of the original TV series, this reboot will feel like a disappointment. For everybody else, a pointless and easily avoidable misfire.
It's a time-honored style of comedy, accessible to a broad audience, and it works on its own terms, without too many ill-advised attempts at modernization.
Even granddad has moved on from teatime comedy gags about jam roly-poly.
It's not the Dad's Army we know -- it never could be -- but it's an affectionate and well-crafted homage that builds to a climax that is as funny as it is strangely stirring.
"Dad's Army," while perfectly pleasant, isn't very funny, fighting to find something grand to do with its WWII setting and cast of quirky characters. Parker isn't asleep here, but he isn't inventive either.
Audience Reviews for Dad's Army
Faithful to the original in terms of casting but the plot is overly simplistic and guessable. Saying that though it's just an enjoyable film that doesn't try to do anything it knows it isn't supposed to.
Wonderful...nothing more can be said about this classic. Basically an extended verion of the tv series but just lovely.
Loved watching repeats of Dad's army as a child. Film is pretty funny aswell.
