Bad Title, Funny Movie
20 August 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

`Said O'Reilly to McNab' is an enjoyable comedy with enough laughs to satisfy me. The plot is nothing new, a young couple want to marry but their Dads don't like each other, just about sums it up. But the casting is the thing. Will Fyffe, an old Music Hall comedian, plays a mean Scotsman as he often had before and does it so well. O'Reilly is an Irish-American confidence trickster and the less-experienced Will Mahoney brings him off with some panache. The exchanges between the two Wills are highlights of the film.

Despite being a generously built man Fyffe gives us a most dainty sword dance before Mahoney, not to be outdone, performs an expert tap-dance. Fyffe also sings very pleasantly an appropriately Scottish tune `New Years Day'. Then there's a golf game with much use of the niblick (an old-fashioned 9-iron, I believe) and the usual cheating.

This vintage movie is well worth seeking out; it ran a neat 80 minutes in the beautifully clear print that I saw.
