We have just seen it this week and loved it. Cinema nearly full at just after mid day as well. A difficult act to follow but they made a good effort we thought. Looking forward to Grimsby next.
The audience were of that certain age so all well behaved.

If you were an avid fan,as I was,you will be disappointed,you could tell some of the cast weren't happy by their performances,some people in the auditorium walked out. !!!

We watched the original movie on Sunday, an absolute classic, how can you follow those personalities. Also we visit the village quite regularly where the film was made, the butcher's shop and green grocers is still there, the bank is now a Costa coffee :-(, gorgeous part of the country, Del.

Mark, I saw the Beeb.dramatisation. John Sessions' Arthur Lowe was incredibly good. It seems odd now but the whole concept of Dad's Army was seen as very controversial in 1968.It came close to not getting made as BBC hierarchy worried it was trivialising the war.

I enjoyed it. The cast tried hard to emulate the characters of the TV series with varying amount of success. I never saw an earlier film version so cannot compare it. It was extremely well attended at all the screenings at the Kavanagh, Herne Bay and appeared to be quite popular with the audience. However, I do not think any remake can beat the original TV series. I think they continued a bit too long and became too predictable and repetitive. ken Finch.
