First, let me just point out to one reviewer bop pop, or something like that that Fitzwilly is NOT a Disney film, so if you find it immoral, well, don't blame them.Secondly, it IS just a movie, and considering some of the horrible junk that has been brought out by Hollywood over the years- some of which was intended for children, some not- it's hard to even think of this charming, little film as immoral, disgusting or anything else.I initially sought out this movie- and bought it before seeing it- simply because I'm a huge "Get Smart" fan, and therefore, adore Barbara <more>
Feldon. I've read a few of the male reviewers saying they had big crushes on her. I didn't get to witness this miracle comedy until my late teens during the early 90s when Nick @ Nite began showing it, but as a young woman, Barbara Feldon became an iconic role model to me- and to many others I know.After viewing this movie, I was thankfully not disappointed, which sometimes can happen when you watch or buy a film simply because someone you like from another show is in it. Dick Van Dyke and Barbara Feldon had wonderful chemistry. There were also quite a few supporting roles played by sometimes veteran character actors and some just starting out including a very young Sam Waterston- before his incredible "Law & Order" days .The humor was witty and sweet, and the premise was and I think most people should know this not to be taken seriously. I think we all know it's wrong to steal or to lie or to break the law, but there are quite a few films that create heroes out of anti-heroes and most people aren't complaining about them. For instances here are a few I pulled off the top of my head- "Chicago", where the main characters are murderers, dishonest lawyers and bribe taking wardens; "Thelma & Louise", where two women start out on a fun trip, but through unfortunate circumstances, become outlaws on the run; and even "Pirates of the Caribbean", where the audience is rooting for Jack Sparrow, a fun-loving guy with a good heart, but who is, after all, still a pirate. Some have said this is a children's movie. I certainly think it's safe for a child to watch it, but sometimes the subtle humor might go over their heads. I think it's just a fun, lovely movie, with wonderful actors, having a good laugh, and creating an enjoyable couple of hours.
years ago the very privileged lived the way we still do... (by Lady Jasmine)
Fitzwilly without a doubt is one of the BEST Dick Van Dyke movies ever made. It is sleek, elegant and has a sophisticated brand of comedy that has become an almost extinct breed. The story moves along at a fast clip, with just enough suspense that you wonder what will happen next at the same time you are laughing hysterically and a touching romance to boot! Although kids could watch this movie and get some laughs out of the few sight gags, it's unlikely that many would understand the more subtle dry humour that reigns throughout; still this is a movie that can be watched and enjoyed by <more>
the whole family! I am eagerly looking for a DVD release!
When people ask me my favorite Christmas movies, I include "White Christmas," the George C. Scott "Christmas Carol" and "Fitzwilly." The latter film usually brings a perplexed response. In fact, much of the film takes place during the holidays, and the climax if I remember correctly , occurs on Christmas Eve. This film has been a favorite since my childhood, and I'm disappointed that it doesn't get more TV airings during the holiday season.
Fitzwilly is an undiscovered gem (by mcrone)
It was great to see Fitzwilly again last nite on cable. I saw the movie when it came out and liked it, yet it received no accolades or attention whatsoever. I remember being pleasantly surprised by the movie and the performances of Dick Van Dyke and Barbara Feldon. They had been regarded by me as lightweights who would forever appear in silly kids' shows or dumb sitcoms. Wrong on both counts for both actors. Fitzwilly also is interesting for the all-star lineup of the best character actors of that day in every supporting role from top to bottom. I hope this movie will continue to be <more>
shown, even if it is limited to the Christmas tie-in. Possibly because of the "career change" aspect of the lead actors, I thought this movie was an early Disney venture away from kiddie entertainment. If any commenters have info on that I hope they will respond.
An interesting lighthearted movie, well worth watching (by milltown)
I first watched this movie just before Christmas 1994 and have seen it at least once a month since. To me it is a movie that is simple and pleasant,not violent or extreme, with few if any underlying themes/agenda, there are too many movies that concentrate on the spectacular, which are fine if you wish to watch stunt or body doubles for 50% of the show. Dick Van Dyke's character "Fitzwillie" is a gangster, as are the rest of his team in the best possible way , he only deceives those that can afford to loose ensuring that his "surrogate Mother" lives the life to which <more>
she is accustomed. For anyone who has not had the opportunity to watch this movie, rent it, get a nice bottle of wine, some snacks and a comfortable seat and enjoy the type of movie that unfortunately is not made any longer and as it is made around the Christmas period, there is of course that Seasonal good feeling! Enjoy!
Used to be a Christmas classic (by John-McGrew-miscellaneou)
For reasons you will discover when watching the film, this used to be shown every Christmas on TV. I think the word which perhaps describes it best is, "cute". If you enjoy other lighthearted 60's comedies, you should like this one also. It's a shame this is still available only on VHS pan-and-scan, but it doesn't distract from the plotI noticed Turner Classic Movies is showing it Dec. 22, 2005. Perhaps they show it every year, I don't know. So if you want to see it in its original wide screen version, all you need is basic cable. Otherwise, you're stuck with <more>
this old tape. Does anybody really use VHS anymore?!ENDHere is some extra text so my review comes up to the required 10 lines. Personally, I prefer shorter reviews. I don't want to know all about a movie before I see it, just a clue of whether or not I would enjoy watching it. I think the less you know of a movie beforehand the more enjoyment is retained! Well, that should about make the required 10 lines!
Thieving for generosity's sake is an odd Christmas theme.. (by AlsExGal)
But that is the theme of this most unusual Christmas movie that is a Christmas movie more because of the spirit of the thing than the time of year in which it is set.Dick Van Dyke, in probably his best screen role, plays Claude R. Fitzwilliam, Fitzwilly for short, butler to Miss Vicky Edith Evans . He is head of the household servants and they all act as thieves for him, running a series of con games and out and out brazen thefts all so that their beloved employer Miss Vicky will think that she is still wealthy and can live out the rest of her life in the manner to which she is accustomed. <more>
The fact is that when her father died she was left the whopping total of 180 dollars. Dad was flat broke. Fitzwilly runs this operation with military precision, aware that if Miss Vicky ever found out she would demand that they all return the money, which they cannot. You see, Miss Vicky's servants are not the only generous people in this film - albeit with other people's money - Miss Vicky is too, always giving away her money to charities. She just can't seem to say no. Now Fitzwilly usually apprehends her checks when the mail goes out, but occasionally a check will get through. This assures that they are continuously operating while teetering on bankruptcy.And then an outsider intrudes into Fitzwilly's well oiled machine. Miss Vicki has decided to employ a secretary, Juliet Nowell Barbara Feldon , to help her with her alternative dictionary that shows all of the ways that each word can be spelled incorrectly. This dictionary was Fitzwilly's idea to keep Miss Vicky busy, but now it has blown up in his face as this secretary begins snooping around and asking questions about the goings on in the mansion.What is so great about this film is that there really are no bad guys. Everybody has good motives. Miss Vicki is a philanthropist with no money, her servants could easily land jobs doing less for more without the worry of being incarcerated, and Miss Nowell is suspicious that these servants are stealing from their employer.I've never seen anything quite like it and I highly recommend it. It truly has the Christmas spirit.
This is a fun movie with a really good cast. Dick Van Dyke and Barbara Feldon have good chemistry and while the modern day Robin Hood tale is preposterous you'll want to believe it. Poor Gimbels. Ps: Norman Fell is excellent as the nervous accountant and there are lots of great little character parts. Must be one of Sam Waterston's first films. All in all an enjoyable Christmas film our family loves to watch year after year!
