Movie Info

Based on a popular Australian novel, this comedy was produced Down Under in 1966. Nino Culotta Walter Chiari is an Italian journalist who is lured by his brother into coming to Australia to work for his paper there. But when Nino arrives in Sidney, he finds out that there is no paper; his brother has taken off with the investors' cash. Left in the lurch was his brother's business partner, Kay Kelly (Clare Dunne). Nino vows to pay off his brother's debt and gets a job as a bricklayer to do so. He also tries to woo Kay, but finds her difficult to win over. Meanwhile, he encounters a series of racist reactions from Aussies, at the thought of an Italian assimilating into Australian culture - one of the film's core themes. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

Critic Reviews for They're a Weird Mob

All Critics (1)

Regarded as a classic, this film takes a kindhearted look at Sydney in the mid 60s. It's an Australia that no longer exists, making the film something of a social document worth watching.
