Did You Know?


The setting in the movie where the Dad's Army home guard platoon was located was "Walmington-on-Sea". See more »


Walmington-on-Sea is shown to be approximately half way between Brighton and Eastbourne. A Home Guard platoon from that location would not be chosen to patrol a base near Dover, over 75 miles away. Home Guard units did not venture out of their own districts. See more »


[last lines]
George Mainwaring: Touch and go, old friend. But we got there in the end.
Arthur Wilson: Friend, sir?
George Mainwaring: Eyes front, shoulders back. You're a sergeant of the home guard, not a sack of potatoes.
Arthur Wilson: Thank you, sir. You really are most awfully kind.

Just watch the series instead
20 August 2016 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Being a fan of the original television series I'd thought it would be a good idea watching the movie they made out of it. I have to admit the characters were very resembling the original characters. But for someone who never saw the series before, this movie might be a bit boring because you just can't relive the original characters in your imagination. But even to me, I am not sure they had to make a movie out of it. The series were way funnier. I think the early format of short episodes work way better then a long movie. All in all the movie is watchable, but certainly not as funny as I expected to be. Maybe in the future a movie based on the series Allo Allo? Making fun of the Germans is always funny.
