Audience Reviews for On the Fiddle

  • Nov 17, 2014
    A pre-Bond Connery plays a bit of a simpleton is this quirky British comedy. It's more a series of sketches rather than a complete film with Lynch (the main character) and Connery involved in a series of cons during WW2. They make a great double act and they're supported by some great British comedy talent. The film takes an uneasy turn to the dramatic towards the end but up till then it's an enjoyable (although slight) comedy.
