Leaden, would-be whimsical Rank comedy about a World War II British commando raid to rescue the pregnant prize-winning cow of the title from a Nazi-occupied minor Channel isle and secure its valuable breeding strain. A mere moment's meditation on the ramifications of a narrative about generic superiority (albeit bovine) should convince you that you'd be deeply offended if you were daft enough to see it.

I would not class this as a comedy. Rather it is a film about the spirit of the Channel Islanders. When I have an hour and a half to spare I enjoy watching this.
