Time Out

A notable voice cast, including Ewan McGregor and Timothy Spall, makes very little mark at all. Profoundly silly, it should be. Pointless, it shouldn't.

Alistair Harkness

A thoroughly mirthless, baby-brained attempt to apply the gross-out humour of Team America to an alternate history of the Second World War via an unfunny script and risible voice acting from a cast that should know better.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

Sadly plumps for lowest-common-denominator idiocy of the let's-put-Hitler-in-a-frilly-dress variety.

Brian Orndorf

A refreshing offering of comedic insanity. The movie tuckers out quickly, but when its mix of chaos and slapstick comes together, it makes for a highly enjoyable curiosity.

The film?s real undoing is the weak script. Dominated by tired racial stereotypes, it?s as if the McHenry brothers have watched too many old episodes of ?Allo ?Allo.

Radio Times

It tries to both celebrate and lampoon British culture and spirit at the same time, only the end result is surprisingly flat.

Daily Express (UK)

For sheer oddity value this creation of filmmaking brothers Edward and Rory McHenry must rank as some kind of collector's item.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror (UK)

It's all deeply silly, but agreeably so with some smart one-liners, tongue-incheek humour and nobody taking themselves too seriously.

Kim Newman
Empire Magazine

The Dad's Army premise is undermined by a limp script and soggy Braveheart pastiche, although the strong voice cast prevent disaster.

Nazis invade London by tunneling under the English Channel in this alternate history comedy acted out with action figures. It's an appealingly baked… More

It's hard to believe Jackboots on Whitehall isn't amazing, but, it's true. In fact I fell asleep.

In this reality, England was unable to evacuate its troops from Dunkirk in 1940, leaving it almost totally defenseless with the exception of the Home Guard… More
