  Some Very Funny Moments.

| | See all Dirtfish's reviews (475)

Dad's Army (1971) is a spin-off movie from the classic TV show. It was filmed half way through the TV show's run and stars all the regulars including Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier, John Laurie, James Beck, Arnold Ridley, Ian Lavender and Clive Dunn.

The movie is actually a prequel to the series revealing how the Home Guard came together and how Captain Mainwaring (Lowe) took charge.

There are some very funny moments in this movie but it does recycle two or three plot ideas from the TV show. All the classic catchphrases are here as well as the superb theme song.

The Dads Army characters are some of the most likeable ever created on TV and they work well in this movie. Its good fun but basically just a longer version of the TV show.

  It's the best of the rest!

The dad's army film is the best of 1970's tv comedy series tie-ins. The only fault is that whilst the material in it is excellent, it is spread a little thinly.

  Expected more, but still great

I'll be honest, I did expect it to be better than it was.

Don't get me wrong - It was a very good film, but I don't think it matches all the other series.
I didn't know it was a prequel to all the series either which came as a pretty big surprise to me.
Still a good choice at a cheap price, but think I prefer the series much more ^^
