Jackhall on Whiteboots

Puppet animation movie! Since I'm also watching Robot Chicken at the moment, this was entirely coincidental.

This movie relates the true tale of how Germany invaded England during World War II, and took over London. Churchill is forced to flee to the Land of the Scots, a savage place. Fortunately, the hero of the movie, a man named Chris, manages to unite the peoples against the Nazi menace...

Yeah, slightly satirical. As ever, the humour is a little strained at times to get the satire in, and I probably missed some. Still, everyone gets smacked at, English, Scottish, Indian, German, French and American. The funniest moment was the introduction of Braveheart, but other than that it was mildly amusing.

Voice wise, we tick off Ewan McGregor, Rosamund Pike, Richard E. Grant, Timothy Spall... so some decent names here. The puppetry is good as well, with some decent mouth music considering the most known British puppetry is from Gerry Anderson.

So, funny-ish, but not brilliant.
