Everybody's favourite British regiment is back in the new version of Dad's Army. Director Oliver Parker has recruited the much loved classic British TV Show with the help of some of the UK's best known actors. Like the TV show, the movie is set in 1944 and World War II is almost at its peak. The Home Guard is patrolling the streets of Walmington-on-Sea and their spirits are rather dampened by the thought of the imminent invasion. Their only light relief comes from a visit from a beautiful journalist going by the name of Rose Winters. Rose soon has all the men on their best behaviour and all the ladies of the town attempting to up their game. However it's soon 'back to work' for the men when they find out there's a spy living amidst the residents in their small seaside town.

And they're back! The hilarious band of men that put their lives on the line for their country return in an all new adventure on the big screen. World War II is at its very peak during the 1940s and the Home Guard at Walmington-on-Sea are about to have an unusually eventful episode. Hours of patrolling the army base at Dover - trying to keep spirits up on the eve of the soldiers' impending journey to France to take on the Germans - are over for now, because UK intelligence have just uncovered a mysterious secret signal over the radio - apparently someone has been sending messages from Walmington to Berlin, and now nobody can be trusted. The Home Guard aid the mission to uncover the spy - though nobody dares put too much faith in this bumbling lot.

There's basically just one joke in this scruffy British comedy, and it's dragged out painfully for the better part of an hour before the script finally clicks into gear. Likeable actors help hold our interest until then, giving realistic performances even if everything about the movie is deeply implausible. And at least the final act has some genuine wit in it.
It starts three months before the wedding of Kyle and Lydia (Philip McGinley and Emily Atack), as Kyle's best man Jarvis (Mark Stobbart) takes him on a series of stag-night activities including naked paint-balling and a visit to a brothel. When Kyle discovers that he has a sexually transmitted disease, he decides not to tell Lydia. But how can he avoid sex until the final all-clear test in 90 days time? Jarvis offers several elaborate excuses, while Kyle chooses a more subtle approach. But even without knowing what's up, Lydia begins to doubt whether they should get married.
First of all, who plans a stag night three full months before the wedding? This is the kind of boneheaded logic that infuses the entire film and leaves us unable to believe anything that happens. Obviously, the real problem in this relationship isn't that Kyle has contracted an STD, but that he's unable to be honest with the woman he plans to marry. Writer-director Ben Cookson never even touches on this, instead barrelling on with the goofy antics.

Atack, who plays Charlotte Hinchcliffe in the popular E4 comedy, went to police after twitter user @jeffjon56599388 used the social networking site to send over a barrage of worrying messages to the young star. Currently suspended when you search for the user's name on twitter, The Daily Mail has records of the horrible posts. "Emily its time 4 u to leave this world, ur last hours wnt be pleasant, it will acheive the objective" said one. Another said: 'u sound happy!? im glad!!! visit yr family now...tell them goodbye! it'll be yr last chance to do so!!!!!!' Atack hit back, saying "Everyone report @jeffjon56599388 ^https://twitter.com/jeffjon56599388@ never read/seen anything so vicious towards me in my whole life." She added: 'Please everyone show these tweets to @bedspolice ! Can't be having that. Next level." Given the history of abusive tweets being dealt with swiftly, and the fact that the locations of users can be determined based on ip addresses, it would appear tremendously unwise to use twitter for such purposes; unwise and unkind.
Atack replied to her abuser, confirming the inclusion of the police in the matter, saying, "Prison for you", telling sympathetic fans that her abuser had "lost the plot" and writing: "Hi all, thanks for your nice tweets! Police are on the case. X" A Bedfordshire Police spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that we received a complaint reporting malicious communications and our investigations are ongoing." We'll have more as it breaks.
Emily Atack who appeared in The Inbetweeners as Charlotte Hinchcliff, the love interest of 'Will', Simon Bird's character from the popular Channel 4 comedy, has been receiving death threats from one of her followers on Twitter, reports the Daily Mail.
The abusive tweeter sent tweets including:
"Emily its time 4 u to leave this world, ur last hours wnt be pleasant, it will acheive the objective."

An internet troll who threatened to kill The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack is being hunted by police. The actress - who played Charlotte Hinchcliffe in the Channel 4 comedy - reported a Twitter user who claimed they would slice her to bits and make her "bleed to death."
The user 'jeffjon56599388' has since been named as Jeff Jones, who told Atack in one of his many tweets, "Emily its time 4 u to leave this world, ur last hours wnt be pleasant, but it will achieve the objective." Remaining pretty calm about the whole thing, the actress reported the issue to police before telling Jones "Prison for you." Somewhat unnervingly, he tweeted back, "Prison for me...death and heaven for you." Afterwards, the actress urged her 84,000 Twitter followers to report the troll, her fans hit back - in their droves. One ranted, "To the vile creature sending @ematack abuse! Be a man and show ur face!"
