5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant, bittersweet and very moving 20 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wonder who classified this as a "comedy" (the original cinema poster said "Comedy sailing to a new high") - it's very bittersweet in places.

Bill Owen - always being teased about being short ("Shorty") is tired of being humiliated by his pub mates in front of his girlfriend and snaps, deciding that he should join the legion to prove to himself he's got what it takes (and other motives too).

A legion of England's (and Wales'! Read more ›
