Critic Reviews for Two Men Went to War
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.
A very amiable comedy.
Audience Reviews for Two Men Went to War
What an unexpected delight is this true-ish wartime tale of two army dentists determined to do something for the war effort. A grizzled WW1 Sergeant and callow private go AWOL, heading for Cornwall and then to France armed with a rucksack of grenades, a couple of pistols and the odd dental tool. Possessing a comic lightness of touch rarely seen in Britain since the halcyon days of the Ealing comedies, this wonderful tale of British eccentricity is hilariously funny mainly because it never goes for the obvious laugh. Realisitic enough that the adventure is frequently nerve-wracking, with a splendid plot that constantly wrongfoots your guesses, the mismatched comic pair of Kenneth Cranham and Leo Bill work brilliantly. Filmed in vibrant colours so rarely seen in a British film, the movie succeeds way beyond its modest ambitions. It's the rare sort of film that banishes the blues and puts you in a good mood that lasts for ages afterwards. What more can you ask from a film than that?
I seem to be on a 'based on true events' roll here. I must have come across this on as a preview on some other rental disc. Can't imagine where else I'd have found it. Regardless, you've got 2 quite likable characters...and what characters they are...who bumble their way to successfully completing their self-assigned mission. You've got to wonder about fate...or just blind luck. They're fortunate they didn't kill themselves or each other. I found the movie to be quite humorous...and just all around entertaining. Some beautiful scenery surely didn't hurt either. No major budget, no high profile sex symbol stars, no extreme violence or nudity. Just your general well told tale. I have a dentist's appointment in a few weeks. I'll be looking at him in a completely different way now. 'It's all rather hush hush like almost everything else that's common knowledge around here." "An Army That Can't Bite, Can't Fight"
i didnt think i'd like it its about two dentists who want to help with hte war. its funnier than a lot of the british movies and its funny becaues its not obvious. its way better than i thought it would be.
