Movie Info

Set in the 1950s in Britain, this award-winning social comedy by director and co-writer John Boulting features Ian Carmichael as the inept Stanley Windrush, a hopeless twit with -- we are to believe -- an Oxford degree. Unlike others in his social circle, Stanley wants to work. When he tries out for jobs in industry with the full expectation of working his way into a management position, he sets off disasters and alienates his interviewers. So his uncle gives him a job in his munitions factory,

An intermediary work, one foot in Ealing gentility, the other in the abrasion of Anderson, Reisz, et al.

It's a mostly forgotten work today, despite its all right construction and the funny performance by a restrained Sellers.

...the Boulting brothers' acerbic satire I'm All Right Jack (1959) is a merciless and hilarious dagger thrown at both Labor and Management, two opposing factions each rotten with exclusive self-interest.

Splendid Boulting Brothers satire with a great Peter Sellers performance.

Audience Reviews for I'm All Right Jack

Fear not socialist comrades, everyone gets their fair share of ribbing in this British classic poking fun at strike culture, unionists and factory life in the post war years. Ian Carmichael, Peter Sellers, Terry-Thomas, Richard Attenborough, Dennis Price , Margaret Rutherford and John Le Mesurier all in one film!!!! What more could you ask for (More sick day allowance, free dental care, extra carers leave.....I jest). A classic, well worth a watch and still very funny.

For me, this is the best film of all time. A superb cast of the UK's finest character actors and an A1 script.

Peter Sellers was truly magnificent as the left wing union shop steward and Terry Thomas excelled in playing the two faced Personnel Manager. Among his classic comments are "The Management have behaved like absolute stinkers" when talking to the union and " They are a complete shower" when talking to Management about the unions. Another fine comment is when on being told that some bigwigs are visiting the factory, Terry Thomas replies "You better spruce the place up a bit, you know soap in the toilets, that sort of thing".

I must have seen this film at least 20 times and I never grow tired of it. Great story, fine comedy and great acting. Never has a film handled the issue of industrial relations in such an amusing and pertinent manner.

Sharp but somewhat dated satire about unions, strikes and industry in 1950s Britain. The opening scene in the candy factory is a riot -- I wish the rest of the film were as funny. Favorite little details: Peter Sellers' purposeful walk and patsy Ian Carmichael's steady stream of "terribly sorry"/"frightfully sorry" apologies.
