Critic Reviews for Francis

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • With information culled (as near as dammit) from the horse's mouth, raw second lieutenant O'Connor becomes a hero of the Burma campaign and, not unnaturally, a candidate for the funny farm.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • It holds a few good laughs -- especially for mules.

    May 12, 2008 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Why such a silly, witless and ordinary film would become so popular, cannot be comprehended by me.

    June 29, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • These goofy comedies made more money than anyone expected and director Lubin went on to create another successful talking equine for television in Mr. Ed.

    May 12, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is funnier in concept than it is in demonstration, but it has endured over time and is pleasant, repeatable entertainment.

Audience Reviews for Francis

  • Sep 29, 2007
    Francis, known as the Brando of the mule set, later went on to head TAAG (talking animal actors guild). His career was ruined, however, when, in 1965, he was caught in a scandalous homosexual tryst with TV legend Mr. Ed.
