      James M A very fun and funny underrated Dick Van Dyke film post Mary Poppins. Great to watch around holiday times. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Dick Van Dyke means well, but this is his worst showing. Fitzwilly is so dull that it is unwatchable. If you haven't heard much about this film try to keep it that way. (First and only viewing - 1/7/2019) Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Formulaic comedy in the Disney mold, a fine cast and rather unusual plot line, not compelling. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Frances H Clever tale and a great cast, but just doesn't quite make it as the sparkling comedy that it should have been. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/29/17 Full Review Shadowman4710 A charming, if dated relic of the late 1960's where caper movies were still very much a thing. Dick Van Dyke is near the top of his game as the suave, conniving Butler out to make a major score but it's Dame Edith Evans who steals the show as the dotty Miss Vicky. It's always a must see during the Christmas season for me. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/23/23 Full Review Audience Member 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! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Rated: 3/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Fitzwilly isn't a great film by any means but it's entertaining and funny enough to sit back and enjoy the performances from Dick Van Dyke, Barbara Feldon, and company. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 27, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Somewhat innovative but not funny enough to rise above routine. Rated: B- Jan 8, 2010 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 6, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
