Jimmy Perry based the character of Private Frank Pike on his own background and his experiences during the war. He originally wrote the part of Private Walker, the spiv, for himself to play in the original Dad's Army (1968) television series, but David Croft vetoed this on the grounds that other cast members would think Perry had taken the best part for himself.

The closing credits sequence begins with a caption "You have been watching", followed by scenes of the various characters marching, with captions that show the actors' names but not their characters' names. This is exactly the same style as was used in the original TV series. See more »
Being a fan of the original television series I'd thought it would be a good idea watching the movie they made out of it. I have to admit the characters were very resembling the original characters. But for someone who never saw the series before, this movie might be a bit boring because you just can't relive the original characters in your imagination. But even to me, I am not sure they had to make a movie out of it. The series were way funnier. I think the early format of short episodes work way better then a long movie. All in all the movie is watchable, but certainly not as funny as I expected to be. Maybe in the future a movie based on the series Allo Allo? Making fun of the Germans is always funny.
