Lieutenant Goodbody has absolutely no idea how to lead his British regiment in the North African battlefield of WWII. But what he lacks in experience, he makes up for in enthusiasm. And when he's ordered to build a cricket playing field 100 miles behind enemy lines, he's determined to succeed even if this means most of his men are killed in the process.

The next thing you realise is that you only ever half an idea what's going on! This is a prime example of 1960's experimental cinema and as you watch it you appreciate the artistic merit but scrabble around trying to find a discernible plot or message amongst the action on screen.
I was a massive fan of the Beatles during my teenage years and I idolised John Lennon, therefore this is a film I always intended on watching but I never found it available on VHS, it was a long wait before I finally watched it and it was good seeing my former hero in a more 'grown up' film than the likes of 'Help!' or 'The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night'. Lennon doesn't have a huge part but the lines he delivers are along the same vein as can be found in his books 'In His Own Write & A Spaniard in the Works' - and fit in perfectly with the abstract feel of the film.
This film is sometimes quite dark, and there are some funny moments. A lot of the humour comes from wordplay, for example; Crawford as officer Goodbody reports to his senior as he stands next to a toilet and announces - "I'm here at your convenience".Read more ›
both the arty farty anti war movies of the time and the big Hollywood john wayne style war movies that glorifies war. It is both surreal in its comedic
moments and brutal in its depiction of the horrors of war (an example of which is the insertion of stock footage of german troops stepping over the bodies of allied troops on a beachhead).It of course features some of britains greatest talent of stage and screen of the time: Michael Crawford, Roy Kinnear (father of Rory Kinnear), Lee Montague, Robert Hardy, Michael Hordern, Jack McGowran and of course not forgetting John Lennon,( who wrote the Beatles classic strawberry fields forever whilst making this film on location in spain). So if you're looking for something a little offbeat but has something to say then look no further than this classic Richard Lester movie........
I highly recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of The Beatles or Lennon or just classic filmmaking.
