All the Queen's Men

Movie Summary

Director:
Stefan Ruzowitzky
Released:
2001
Rating:
PG-13

All the Queen's Men is a comedy from 2001 directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky and is loosely based on a true story. During World War II, a secret decoding device called the Enigma transmits all the important missions of the Germans to its forces. The device is hidden inside a Nazi factory that employs only women workers. American spies, O'Rouke (Matt Leblanc), Archie (James Cosmo), Johnno (David Berkin) and the rest of the team have to impersonate women to infiltrate the factory and steal the Enigma device. The team is thoroughly trained and coached to look and act like women by Tony (Eddie Izzard), who is a cross-dressing entertainer with a great eye for detail. German spy, Romi (Nicolette Krebitz) is the team's contact who helps them gain entrance into the factory so they can attempt to smuggle the code breaking machine out of German and put an end to the Nazi regime for good.

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Rarely has a movie worked so hard to be so inconsequential.

    Los Angeles Times Gene Seymour

    Let's hope -- shall we? -- that the "true story" that allegedly "inspired" All the Queen's Men was a lot funnier and more deftly enacted than what's been cobbled together here.

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    Not bad enough to qualify as a memorable dud, multinational production nonetheless misses mark on every level.
