Synopsis:
Inspired by a true story during WWII, All The Queens Men is a comedic drama that illustrates just how far some soldiers are willing to go for their country. American Special Agent Steven O'Rourke (Matt Le Blanc) or, as he is mockingly referred to by his superior officers "Special Agent Almost" has come dangerously close to pulling off several high stakes intelligence operations. his latest mission, a nearly successful attempt to steal an Enigma machine (the secret coding device used by the Nazis) ends in a skirmish with British soldiers who destroy the Enigma and place him under arrest.
While serving his sentence in a British Military prison, O'Rourke receives orders to cross enemy lines and steal yet another Enigma machine by infiltrating the factory in Berlin. There's only one small catch, the Enigma factory is staffed exclusively by women. O'Rourke and his team will have to carry out their mission dressed entirely in drag. O'Rourke's fear of being caught dead in a dress, combined with the motley squad assigned to him - Archie (James Cosmo), the aging disc jockey, Johnno (David Birkin), the naive genius code cracker, and Tony (Eddie Izzard) a transvestite who's seen more action in the cabaret than in combat - are almost enough for him to turn down the assignment. Nevertheless, with the alternative being prison, he reluctantly agrees. After a hilarious crash course in cross-dressing and combat the team is off to Germany. The mission goes completely awry from the beginning until they are taken in by Romy (Nicolette Krebitz), a beautiful and courageous friend of the resistance. With Romy's help, O'Rouke and his men must put their heads together and come up with a plan to complete their mission. This proves somewhat difficult for O'Rouke when his concentration on the mission at hand is interrupted by the sparks that fly between him and Romy. This motley crew departs on both a comic and suspenseful journey that proves that war makes all men equal, even women.
