Matt Le Blanc in drag?!?!?!By Spoonman from Bedfordshire , 03 Apr 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Its true. The lovable joey has crossed over...
Set during WW2 LeBlanc is an american spy sent on a mission to retrive an Enigma machine from the germans. Only catch is that to get close to one he has to pose as a female factory worker. LeBlanc and his whole team are sent to drag boot camp run by none other than Eddie Izzard. Great performance from Izzard and a distrubingly serious performce from LeBlanc. Worth seeing for the comedy but don't expect a complex plot.

Sense of humour bypass requiredBy offtherails (8 reviews) from Gloucester , 14 Dec 2011A lowish-budget comedy so painful, so slow-moving, and so utterly hopeless that it might just be beyond redemption.
Matt Le Blanc? Eddie Izzard? This should be very good indeed. But this is the Matt Le Blanc from Joey, not the Matt Le Blanc from Friends. He's given a Bondish, tank-stealing pre-title sequence all of his own, which proved to be the high point.
Edward Fox, cast against type as a stuffy upper-class British officer, then summoned him from a muddy rugby game (I was baffled by this) and teamed him up with his Sergeant (now a temporary Major, for reasons that defy explanation). Eddie Izzard as a cross-dressing former Lieutenant and a horrifically shallow techie whizkid were added to the group, who then learned how to dress as women.
They went to Germany in the least convincing aircraft set ever seen in a film, and a number of unfunny things happened to them, followed by a few boring things and one major plot twist that was presumably supposed to be clever - but missed completely - before the disc went back in the post.
This film is not so-bad-it's-good. It's just bad. Clumsily written, under-acted and apparently directed by a corpse. Avoid.
Not terribly goodBy a customer from Rugby , 21 Jan 2010This had opportunities to be very funny but seemed to miss them. In the end the impression left was that this was just a limp vehicle to give Izzard some big screen experience. Shame really because I think he is a very funny guy.
Very humourousBy nikkiheart73 (30 reviews) from Plymouth , 06 Jun 2009I wasn't sure if this one would be too slapstick or just not funny but it was very good. It was nice to see Matt Le Blanc again. Only really seen him in Friends and Joey so it was good to see him in something else. A very amusing tale set in Nazi germany.
RubbishBy a customer from Bishopton , 29 Jan 2009I forced myself watch 9 minutes and 51 seconds of this drivel.
I could not believe how dreadful it is.
By the time Matt Le Blanc came into the General's office still covered in mud from an Americam Football match and sat down on the leather chair I'd had enough.
Don't waste time or money on this traversty of a movie.
Its war - but not as we know it!By a customer from Worcestershire , 17 Jan 2007hilariously funny - one of the few films I've watch three times. Eddie Izzard was great and so was James Cosmo. The storyline was rather far fetched - but provided some good entertainment for my teenage children
