The play - and screenplay - by Peter Nichols is primarily based on hisown experiences of his life in an army entertainment troupe (CombinedServices Entertainment) in Singapore and on the characters in thetroupe with him.(In this troupe were also British Comedy legends-tobe,Stanley Baxter and Kenneth...
After reading a bunch of negative reviews of this film I thought Ishould post my own. This is a comedy-drama, based on a theatrical play/It is funny, sad, and serious, sometimes all at once. It has made upit's mind what type of film it's trying to be. It's about a theatricalunit doing a touring vari...
The nightmare of war is made blazingly sharp and absurd by the notion ofthis film: place a (largely gay) contingent of army personnel in themiddleof jungle on a covert mission (of which they know nothing). This is whatbefalls the hapless members of SADUSEA -- Song And Dance Unit: SouthEastAsia -- ...
I enjoyed this comedy of wits and one liners. The play was recentlyresurrected here in the U.S. but I didn't get a chance to see it. So I ranacross this movie/video not because of John Cleese of Monty Python famebutNicola Pagett who I had seen in PBS's Upstairs Downstairs. Cleese and theother cast m...
This is a tiny little gem that shines brighter with each viewing. Like thefilm THE DRESSER, it deals with the little world of the theatre during theSecond World War. In this case, on one of the Malaysian islands. Most ofthe men that entertained the troops there were drag queens and overall, allof...
Like "M*A*S*H" and "Good Morning, Vietnam", "Privates on Parade" showssoldiers making the best of their wartime service. In this case, a gayBritish platoon in 1940s Malaya messes with the rules while underorders to fight Communist insurgents. John Cleese plays their veryheterosexual, very militarist...
The main problem with this movie is the over-dominating personality ofJohn Cleese, doing his authoritarian idiot stuff as he did in FawltyTowers and earlier in Monty Python. Trouble is, in the context of a1940s Army entertainment unit, this characterisation is just not right.A similar scenario could...
I have seen this film about 4 or 5 times now and it gets better eachtime I see it. The acting is better than superb, and the plot line iswell told. The colour and just the good fun of the film is a joy. Whenyou think of the difficultly of what these "boys" had to do you mustwonder in orr at how good...
Really, the film is as confused as some would argue the cross-dressingmilitary units are. I'm not a fan of John Cleese. That's hardly asecret. I tolerate him on Monty Python, and I will grant that he canentertain, but as a general rule, I don't exactly make it a point toseek out his work(though I do...
A bad film. It can't seem to decide whether it wants to be a goofy comedyabout flamboyantly gay showtune performers or a tragic and realistic warmovie. Any attempts on its part to be both at the same time areunsuccessful, in my opinion.Big fans of John Cleese might be tempted to watch this movie t...
This film might have proved funnier if the plot hadn't been ripped from "ItAin't Half Hot, Mum", which is about a gay song a dance troup in Malaya andtheir straight RSM. Trouble, It Ain't Half Hot was genuinely funny whereasPOP can't decide whether it's British High Camp or a war film. (Of course,be...
