Short Kilts - not a bad movie after all
6 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sorry to disagree guys but Short Kilts is quite a funny little movie. There is some nice business between Stan and Fin, particularly in the musical chairs scene. Also, the idea that the family have a bellyful of porridge before visiting their stingy neighbours, only to be presented with a veritable banquet when they arrive, works quite well. It is also unfair to say that Stan's pre-teaming work is poor. Films such as Dr Pyckle and Mr Pryde, The Snow Hawk and Mother's Joy stand up quite well. Of course neither Stan nor Babe's early work can be compared with what they achieved as a team, but then that's a whole other kettle of fish to pickle ourselves in.
