Somewhat innovative but not funny enough to rise above routine.

Audience Reviews for Fitzwilly

This is a great movie! Dick Van Dyke is at is comedic best in this film and the supporting cast is outstanding. I love old films and I watch them often and this is another great comedy. Opinions vary, but watch the whole film before you rate it and remember that this was filmed in 1967. It's a great film!

Dick Van Dyke showcases some accents and characters as he plays a butler who steals in order to pay for his employer's lifestyle since she doesn't know she is broke. Lots of character actors support Van Dyke including John McGiver and John Fiedler and Sam Waterson in his first role. The comedy is great and it is a clever and witty script that is paced nicely. Lots of fun and quite enjoyable.

A good comedy for the most part, and it has a good cast, but I think it could have been better. I saw only the second half of this movie on TV, and I'd like to see the whole movie sometime.
