The Reviews for They're a Weird Mob (1966) 1080p


Six StarsReviewed byxpat-55192Vote: 6/10

I give this well-acted movie six stars as I had seen it when it was first released in New Zealand (1966) and I had read the excellent book first.Unfortunately, by comparison to the superb book, the movie seems tissue-thin and ends quickly without any of the genuine Aussie humour of the book - also bought again after a hunt.The screenplay ought to be completely rewritten in 2020 and the movie re-shot.I'd watch it.

Another annoying late-Powell film..but does have good visuals..Reviewed byimdb020106Vote: 5/10

This film and Age of Consent seem to be competing for annoying characters..and scenes that go on and on.

The fat man at the bar. Endless closeups of his sweating face. You can see every pore. Nino doesn't understand a word. Then it gets explained to him. Then we move on to the next word. Which he doesn't understand either. And on and on. ...

...to the newstand scene. He doesn't understand the money. So he hangs around so we can get lots of stunning visuals of the newstand troll.

Then it's on to the drunk guy on the transit ferry - he stumbles around and around and around, cursing the Italians around him. Fine. We get the point. But it doesn't stop. Plus, drunk people don't stumble around so obviously like that. He seems to be imitating Foster Brooks. And people don't just sit there while some drunk screams at them. Then the drunk gets thrown in the water. Then they fish him back and he screams some more. Why didn't they just let him drown?

And then there's the ditch-digging scene. Endless closeups of ditchdigger. They dig and dig and dig.Then they smoke a cigarette. Then they dig and dig and dig. Then they have some coffee. Then they dig and dig. Then Nino falls backwards and collapses. Then he lies there and sweats and heaves. Then he lies there some more. Then there's the endless trip back to town.

I hope you've enjoyed this, because this whole scene at the construction site took about 45 minutes.

The lead character is naive and stupid. You want to smack him over the head. Sorry, people in real life are not this dumb. In one scene he goes swimming. He goes too far out in the forbidden section. The lifeguards wave at him. He thinks they're waving to be friendly, so he waves back. They wave more, he waves more. We are supposed to believe that anyone can be this stupid.

Then 20 lifeguards go to save him. They drag him back and throw him in the lifeguard box. Then he gets, and we get, an exciting lecture about riptides. Beware! Riptides are DANGEROUS! Don't swim where you're not supposed to! Only positives of this scene are lots of nice shots of lifeguards chests, and lumpy-where-it-counts swimsuits.

Main interesting thing about this film are all the great backgrounds of 1966 Australia - when you could still actually migrate there without a 15 year waiting period to become a citizen...and before everything "Australian" became chic.

I fled this one early, too...and commiserated with people in the lobby.

A Truly Australian Story albeit a bygone oneReviewed bysteve-256-360427Vote: 10/10

This beautiful little film encapsulates the Aussie virtues of authenticity and the fair go.

Yes, it's corny - yes, it's not Olivier-like in its acting.

What it delivers, is a true snapshot of life in Australia in the 60's and for Aussies at least, the film provides a beautiful, nostalgic peek into the past. Were things "better back then?" Well, that's a subject for another time and greater minds than mine.

But, if you seek a thoughtful insight into Australia's recent past, replete with "Aussie-isms" and good honest fun, look no further.
