a silly film that is STILL a lot of fun.
26 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for subtlety, then I suggest you look elsewhere. However, if you don't mind watching an uneven but enjoyably silly film, then "Never Too Late to Mend" is right up your alley! The film's plot is bizarrely entertaining and downright ridiculous at the same time! The film begins about the year 1840. Squire Meadows is intent on marrying Susan—the trouble is that she already loves another, George Fielding. So what is this good Justice of the Peace to do—he'll scheme, steal and even kill to have Susan! And, through most of the film he does just that. It's all VERY florid and silly but entertaining at the same time. Some of the most ludicrous of these scenes are in the prison that the Squire runs—which is like a house of horrors.

The bottom line is that if you want a realistic or well made film, then this is not it. No, it's silly from start to finish but oddly satisfying. Worth seeing just because it's so bad and doesn't even try to be better!
