    Default "I Was Wondering Who'd Be The First To Spot That..." - Dad's Army Film Remake In The Offing.

    It looks like a feature length remake of the classic 1960's-70's sitcom "Dad's Army" is shortly to begin production.

    Here's hoping that it turns out better than a lot of the new wartime films that have been mentioned here lately that have turned out to be absolute crap. A little light comedy may be a refreshing change, although whether the subject matter travels well over to the colonies is a moot point.

    Generally not a fan of re- makes (btw what happened to the Dambusters?), although I think the casting of Bill Nighy as Sgt. Wilson could be quite good. I wonder if the comedy of the 60s/70s will carry over well today, or whether it will have to be made more shocking.

    I can't see this one being a success I'm afraid. In our politically correct society we can't recreate the comedic values from the original series.

    Are we allowed to say the "fuzzy wuzzies don't like it up 'em"?

    Can we call someone a "stupid boy" without being accused of bullying and harassment?

    Will the producers get away with an all white cast and stereotyping the Scots and Welsh like in the original?

    Unfortunately it will be a tame effort at recreating a unique and irreplaceable series and will never touch the original and shouldn't be associated with it. If they want to dabble in this area, it should be a stand alone film made for today's society.
