The Press Reviews

  • Gillies MacKinnon’s remake of the classic postwar Ealing comedy is light on laughs and feels out of place in 2016. Full Review

  • While it's a movie not lacking in nationality, it sure doesn't have much personality. No, it doesn't capture the, och aye, spirit of the original. Full Review

  • ...from Izzard's constantly black-affronted army man to Kevin Guthrie's mother hen-pecked schoolteacher and Gregor Fisher's scheming postmaster there's plenty of panto-style characters to stir the emotions. Full Review

  • What makes the film so pleasurable is the humour and lyricism with which it tells its rousing story of whisky-loving small timers coming together together to keep officialdom at bay. Full Review
