Harmless, yet unconvincing light comedy...
23 August 2002 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 8/23/2002 - 4 out of 10(Dir-George Pollock): Harmless, yet unconvincing light comedy with the elderly Barry Fitzgerald playing the supposed oldest man in the world with a son that even seems older than him, but plays the part like a child. The story starts with a television rep that just happens to be hanging out around this small Irish town and stumbles upon a planning meeting for a birthday party for the old fart. He gets the brilliant idea to stage it for television despite the fact that most of the people in the town don't even like the guy. This movie seems to be okay being a simple movie, where the hollywood-type things happen( girl, Fitzgerald's granddaughter, dislikes boy, the television rep, then miraculously likes him later and everything is all peachy kin in the end, of course,) despite the oldest man being so unlikeable from the beginning to end. And besides it's not very funny for a comedy.
