Is 'The Watch' just a movie version of 'Dad's Army'?

Once you've scraped away all the sex jokes and clanging Costco product placement, you're basically left with Dad's Army.

Stuart Heritage, The Guardian, 16th August 2012

Not very substantial, but it's warm-hearted. It's for small boys to take Dad to.

The Daily Express, 15th March 1971
