Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Endearing little film."
‑ Vic Vogler, Denver Post
"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."
‑ Jane Sumner, Dallas Morning News
"Winds up as a charming little entertainment about two lovable, albeit misguided, patriots."
‑ Lewis Beale, Film Journal International
"A mish-mashed historical drama sunk by its flattened tone... on the one hand clamorous and eventful but ultimately also quite tedious and tiresome."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"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."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"As straightforward as its title, delivering exactly what you would expect: a pleasant bit of stiff-upper-lip nostalgia with a touch of whimsy."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"Wait for Two Men Went to War to go to the small screen."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"An enjoyable, amusing and unpretentious film about a couple of English eccentrics - dentists whose eccentricity is not evident until their actions gave them away."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"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."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"A curiously feeble wartime be filed under the heading of 'Might Have Beens.'"
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"More often than not, Two Men Went to War resembles a feature-length episode of Hogan's Heroes."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"A very amiable comedy."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"Well worth an evening invasion of the art house."
‑ M.E. Russell, Oregonian
"A simple dose of nostalgia like this goes down easily."
‑ , E! Online
"An understated charmer inspired by true events."
‑ Timothy Knight,
