      Michael McNay Guardian Without having seen every western ever made... I can confidently put forward the Walt Disney production Scandalous John as the most boring. Mar 17, 2020 Full Review David Robinson Financial Times Directed with modest competence by David Butler, it is a slightly bizarre piece of philosophy to emerge from the Disney organization. Mar 17, 2020 Full Review Margaret Hinxman Daily Telegraph (UK) I record my enjoyment of that marvelous, unsung actor Brian Keith playing the title role in Scandalous John. Mar 12, 2020 Full Review Dilys Powell Sunday Times (UK) Tedious. Mar 17, 2020 Full Review TV Guide Staff TV Guide Unfortunately the direction slips into slapstick routines a bit too often in its quest for laughs. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 7, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      r 9 I almost enjoyed 'Scandalous John', but that's only down to the ending - the rest is average, at best. I like the idea of having Brian Keith and Alfonso Arau as a duo, but Keith acts over the top too many times and his character isn't the most likeable - while Arau's role falls into periods of nothingness here and there. I will say that I actually did like the ending, which went a way I wasn't expecting and surprisingly added a bit of heart to proceedings. The aforementioned, unfortunately, wasn't enough to raise it higher in my thoughts. 2½*. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member (First and only viewing - 12/1/2011) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member The first time I saw this movie was at christmas with some close friends over 12 years ago. I have watched it many times since then. It is a relaxing clean film you can let the whole family. Brian Keith does a great job and Alfonso Arau is his faithful 'ranch hand'. It also has Harry Morgan, Simon Oakland, Michele Carey, and a young John Ritter. Hard to find now, but definitely worth the effort.
