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

...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.

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.

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.
