User Reviews

Quality comedy.
9 January 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The Resistance burst into Cafe Rene and kidnap The Colonel and The Captain, The Gestapo step in and lay down an ultimatum for the return of the duo. The Resistance interrupted The Colonel's birthday celebrations, where a cake was made for him.

So utterly funny, lots of moments, I think my favourite being the interrogation of the cafe members by Herr Flick, the look of horror on his face as Madame Edith begins to sing.

The scenes of Silvera dressed up in that frock, singing badly are comedy gold, she was an outstanding performer.
